A few folks have kindly offered to make donations toward the upkeep of the site, switching to a new hosting company, etc.

We now have a PayPal "Make a Donation" button in the forum masthead, and in the Orders page, so do feel entirely at liberty to go ahead! No specific amount is imposed or suggested - anything you can offer will be of use.

Never mind thisPayPal electronic malarkey. I'll hand over some depreciating fiat currency over at the meet-up, if that's OK.

You can even have US$ if you like. Rolling Eyes

Question if you already have an account it only takes 30 seconds or so.

You mean the way you have to click "update totals" after entering an amount? Yes, it's a bit cut-price, isn't it. The natural thing to do is enter an amount and then the login details, I don't know why they require you to make a separate click.

I would be pleased to make a donation, perhaps in cash at the next London drink.

Wimp that I am, I have to ask for some kind of guideline figure. What would be fair/miserly/generous?
