Kirt, Have you ever considered putting a Paypal donation link on your site?

Great idea  To tell the truth, I never thougt of it. I already use PayPal for software sales, so a donation link should be simple enough.

Do you get many donation? From what I've read, it does not usually generate much revenue. I've had a couple gracious souls donate occasionally, but that's about it.

I'm not currently using any donation links. I think in the future if any of my sites get busy enough to take more of my time and effort I will do it. The more users I have at the time of the annoucement of the new donation link would be bennificial. I know it probably wont generate much, but anything I can do to recover some of my out of pocket expenses will help. I would hope that anyone who really appreciates a site like this would be inclined to give something. I have been on the soap box for some time yelling about the lack of RF "portals" if you will. I have found more usefull links on this site then google and yahoo has provided me in the last 2 years. I'd be happy to be the first to donate to your site.

Keep up the good work Kirt. I'm spreading the word for you. Let me know if there's anything I can do to help.
