    I was wondering??

    I have been wondering about something ever since the Lounge went down and we all gained a real appreciation for how much we rely on the resources provided here in the lounge not to mention all of the great friendships we have been afforded! I know by some of the responses I have read that I am not alone in that appreciation.

    What I was wondering about is this, is there anything that I can do or offer in the way of donation that would assist the Lounge? For example, is there a way that I might be able to donate funds to Woody's Lounge, maybe via PayPal. Maybe a fund could be started to put aside money to help purchase additional/replacement hardware, etc.

    Now I know that a lot of you (especially Woody himself) are going to say that it is the individual contributions and volunteer moderators that sustain Woody's and I would agree whole heartedly but hardware and software are not free (even though we all do a good job of finding the free stuff). Nor are they indestructible as recent history would atest. I have said many times how much I really appreciate all of the great assistance and friendship that I receive here in Woody's Lounge. My hope is that someday I might be proficient enough to be able to assist but in the mean time I would be more than happy to contribute in other, less technical ways.

    As I said, I was just wondering.....

    Thanks for your kind offer. At the moment, we're not in need of financial assistance - since all people involved are volunteers, the only operating costs are those for hosting the Lounge, and those aren't very high.

    But we will keep your idea in mind, perhaps we may have to ask for financial contributions at some point in the future.

    Hi Hans,

    That is as I expected but please put me on the list of those willing to contribute should you ever feel the need. I am willing to forego at least one cup of coffee <img src=/S/coffeetime.gif border=0 alt=coffeetime width=32 height=48> in order to contribute.

    As mentioned before by myself, I too are happy to contribute funds to the running of the lounge as a thank you.
    Best Regards,

    Do purchases from Woody's Office Portal contribute to the lounge in any way?

    Indirectly, yes. Woody (Leonhard) gets a percentage of the sales of his books and software, and he pays for the operating costs of the Lounge.

    I am also very GRATEFUL and would be willing to make a financial contribution. Certainly, I also hope to find a way to freely pass along the benefits that I freely received.
