twag From Max: Mudcat Update - Jan 20, 2009 (227* d) RE: From Max: Mudcat Update - Jan 20, 2009 21 Jan 09

I could see the point of an accounting if membership funds or fees were levied. But this incredible site is as free as the air we breathe--to the vast majority of us who don't maintain the machines it runs on and keep it virus and rootkit and lawsuit free. No ads, no banners, nothing but a tidy yet sprawling database, paired in verbose synergy with an untidy and exhaustive forum knowledgebase.

In the unlikely--it seems to me--event that Max and the Mudcat Team are in fact getting rich on the sporadic, ad hoc donations that we supply...would that a bad thing considering what we're getting in return?

I'm in for $50 for the move. I've been a Digitrad drone for far too long. While I don't blovulate regularly in the forums, I always mean to do…and would just hate it if the 'Cat dried up and blew away for lack of support before I got around to it.

Thank you, Max et al, for all you do.   And thank you Sorcha for annoying me enough to make me finally get up off my wallet. But perhaps that was your intent all along…you cunning minx?


P.S. I also tried to set up a recurring PayPal donation on a monthly basis, but it appears that kind of subscription has to be set up on the vendor's side. If you'd like to offer that as an option somewhere on the site, Max, it might provide you with a steady enough income stream to have a cushion for pop-up expenses like the server move. Still voluntary. The amount could vary from person to person. No pressure, just convenience for those who'd like to support on a regular basis.

P.P.S and thanks for mentioning this over Beers yesterday, Dave!
