I visit a trade forum, and even though I post very seldom, I pay their upgraded member fee which is something like $25 a year. I like some of what is there, the bloke who owns it keeps spam and crap off the site. I think its a modest donation to help keep what is a very useful site for many going.

And back to here, someone else tipped up $50 last night.

Perhaps a link to the trade forum - as you seem to find it useful.

2nd Request Please and Thank you...

This from the guy who causes more moderation work here than any other member by far:

Manny, I appreciate that you - and others - DO point in a lot of work behind the scenes and would WILLINGLY contribute - via paypal  (  :chuckle: ) a regular contribution -

And here we are almost a year later with Moby as good as we know his word to be.

£0

I apologise.

Would I be wrong to think that, while he'd love,  absolutely love, to help out, that he can't at the moment because he still can't use PayPal?

If only there were some other way that he could send money.  ;)
