    I love this site and will help keep it alive. I just need another week or 2 as I'm going through a financial re-arranging right now. Once I get this house paid off and see what's left I'll figure a good ammount to donate here.

    I'm happy to kick in, but I need to wait until my next paycheck.

    I'd hate to see the site go, but I understand shifting priorities. And congratulations Dave on the upcoming twins and hopefully a new house!

    I don't know if this is an easy question or not, but if you think you'd be forced to shut it down, would you consider transferring ownership to someone else instead to keep it going? I don't know how or if that would work, assuming that someone would be willing to take on the burden (and I am not volunteering in any way - I know I couldn't do it), but it may be a better option for some than losing the site completely.

    Like others I will send some next paycheque. Damn would hate to lose this site, one of only two forums that I actually follow, and this one more so then the other.

    I was thinking the same thing. Hopefully it could be an option if it comes to that.

    I'll be sending some money too soon :)

    Donation sent Dave. Thanks for all you do to keep the site going. I've greatly enjoyed visiting here for a long time. It sounds like this is an exciting time for you and your wife. Congratulations on the upcoming arrivals.

    Stuck a check in the mail today. I'd never donated money to anything before, but I was glad to do it for this site. Thank you so much Dave for keeping the site up and running for as long as you have.

    Dave, I just sent a donation through on PayPal. I sent it as a "Gift" to hopefully sitestep any fees on your end. ;)

    Hope it helps, I'd hate to see this site go away.

    Just an idea... but I remember years ago when you were accepting hosting donations a special "icon" appeared in the user profiles of those who donated a certain amount. Maybe you could do something like that again as a special incentive for users to donate?

    I have only paid with paypal through ebay, where everything is pre filled out. How do I send an "gift" there?

    When you click on "Send Money" choose the "Personal" tab near the bottom and it should say This money is being sent as a:

    Then just choose "Gift"

    It doesn't show Gift? It might not be available as an option from international countries. I think if the account has no linked bank account, that could also be a reason.

    I really don't know how the other options work as far as fees on Paypal go. "Other" may work, but it might be easier to just tack on an extra .50 cents or so to cover the fees on Dave's end.

    You all rule, thanks for the donations so far. If we do get enough that upgrade will be suuh-weeet. Plus, I don't even know what I'd do with my Octobers if we didn't have an October Madness to work on...

    I have enjoyed this site for many years and I would definitely miss it. That's why I have sent a donation, too.

    Don't hesitate - donate !:)

    Ok, sent some money finally. Hope to keep the site alive seeing as it's one of my favorites and the main source of my dvd and blu knowledge. :)

    Just made a donation. Wish I could do more but with moving in June and a new baby in July money is a little tight. Hopefully I can donate some more in a few weeks though. Don't know what I would spend my time at work doing without this site haha
