Languages other than English are just fine. I'll go work on some Aramaic alliterations.

Hmmmm, tougher than I thought. My Aramaic consists of knowing how to say things like "the cat came and ate the little goat my father bought", but I don't seem to have picked up electronic terms.

People are doing a great job of stepping up and contributing. Thanks to all of you and to all of our members who make this site what it is.

Do read over our message, see the nifty benefits you can get, then dig deep and throw a few shekels in the hat.

Thanks to all!

Hi SY,

I wanted already to donate some fee for a long time. But the Paypal link does not work for me. Ok, I need to upgrade my browser for that, but I donít want to go through that hassle for now just to donate a fee to DiyAudio and since I have no other problems.... With other payments I have had no problems at all.

Have put this up already some months ago, but it seems my problem to fix that

Cheers

I plan to paypal $20 in a week or 2 (after my paycheque has arrived, bit short on cash right now).

Btw I am a bit afraid to do internet payments these days. My PC has been pestered by trojan horses, spy ware, browser hijacks and so on. Although I daily update my virusscanner, always check M$ for patches and have 3 spyware detectors. Been using Mozilla Firefox now for some time, things are getting better.

Maybe its is an idea to make the costs of running DIYaudio a bit more visable to the members. And also the total amount of donations. So you get an idea how things are. It would be really terrible to lose all the info on the forum.

I guess for a title "The one and only" is out of the question??

Pjotr or anyone else with paypalophobia, send an email to webmaster@diyaudio.com and we can make alternate arrangements.

I like the idea of a thermometer, too. And I think for future Begathons, we'll probably have it. We just needed to get this one going.

As I said I will donate at the end of the month. If Pjotr agrees I can pay his donation at the same time and he can pay me via a normal bank transfer (we know each other from the Dutch Hear forum).

On the other hand that will complicate things a bit for you if he wants his special titel too.

If you're both willing to help us out and it's convenient to send a single paypal payment then by all means please do so. Just drop me a line webmaster@diyaudio.com after you've sent the payment and tell me both user names and how much was donated by each person.

Thanks.

Hey, a BIG thank you to everyone who has contributed so far. But we're still well short of what we need for server fees alone. Been putting off donating a few dollars? You mean to, but you just haven't gotten around to it yet. Now's the time to do it. Then we'll shut up about it for another year. And you'll have a cool new title.

My donation has been done. Is there any place in cyberspace to see the figures rise and rise....?

BTW, can't think of any cool name... Suggestions?

I wouldn't choose Suggestions as a name, but everybody can do what they want
Zeno does sound a bit like Xena, so maybe "Conus the Barbarian" ?
