Spare change?
2018-09-08
It's been awhile since we've had a bleg. I always hate to ask. I feel like I'm promising to gladly pay you Tuesday for a donation today. (Wait. Today's Tuesday. Make that Saturday.)

Still, the Burg costs money to run. Software's mostly free, but the hosting company charges us, and we have hardware costs. We've got the server in Baltimore and a backup server that currently lives in my bedroom and is about to change backup methods. And then there's the cost of beer and gin and Thunderbird...

I try to keep the blegging to a minimum, but every once in a while I have to. So if you've got it, please help keep us going. We've been around longer than most, coming up on 17 full years. With your help we'll be around for a few more years.

#31  So how do I contribute?

My apologies for the delay in responding, Sock Puppet of Doom. There is a PayPal portal in the right margin, below the yellow box and advertising for Fred’s and badanov’s books. The portal also takes credit cards. Or, as seen at the top of that yellow box, one can email Fred directly to ask him where to send a check, cash, money order, flowers and chocolates, VSOP cognac, or even a new server, should one be so moved.

#23  They're impossibly narrow, and broad;
There's lots to applaud, but they're flawed.
Not much is beneath 'em,
And as to belief...
Um... I'm awed at how odd they are!

God

#22  And good on you sir. Courage in the face of uncertainty. I like your point of view sir or madam. Say God like you mean it. :)

#21  Now you guys know my true identity. Damn.

Only Fred will, dear jvalentour. The moderators, as Frank G. noted, don’t have anything to do with that side of things, thank goodness. So even if tortured, we cannot tell. ;-)

#20  I have no issue with writing/saying God, and if he's who/what I think he is, he doesn't either - bigger issues and all that, along with a sense of humor - he created us, after all? He's not Valdemort.

Further, none of the mods (AFAIK) know any of your payment/personal info. I know I don't, and don't want to.

#19  Umm, so your email address didn't work. So I put it on a credit card. Now you guys know my true identity. Damn.
Enjoy the site, let me know when I can say (write) God with out pissing off special people!

#12  where can I send you cash

746 dear, in the righthand margin there is a yellow box in which the second item says E-Mail Me. Click on that, and you’ll get a form to email directly to Fred. Ask him on that, and he’ll tell you.

Easy-peasy!
