So just to clarify for now.....   The PayPal account is a No-Go???
    Just curious, noticed it had been edited out.

That is correct. There is concern over PayPal causing undue grief for the forum. We are considering other options but for now mailing a check or money order is the way to go.

BTW, money donated yesterday via PayPal was received and is being forwarded to Mr. A.

A huge thank you to all - I will get over to the PO probably Monday, due to scheduling, sorry, but I will get all that properly logged in! You guys are absolutely awesome!
Yes, I had a VERY bad experience with PayPal in the past, and won't give them a dime. We are looking into alternatives in the future, but as for right now, we are still solidly 20th Century, just like me. :)  8)

Keep asking you guys to hit me up and let me know answer to my query. 

Don’t need any more funds?

Obviously hosting comes first... our target there runs in the neighborhood of $425/annually.

So what’s the number that relives the pressure please.

That keeps the lights on. Extra funding sometimes gets used to "give back" to the members with giveaways.

I sent a donation via pay pal, sorry about the confusion. Read a thread that provided a link to pay pay and sent it. After sending it I read that you didn't prefer using that. Sorry for any problem that presented and thank you for getting it to the right account or people.

I picked up and deposited all the generous donations, thank you very much! We are very close to the goal of keeping the lights on for another years, indeed. I hadn't been in so long that I had to have the postal worker open the box - is PIAT to get over there.
So thank you to everyone, and we forgot to ask if anyone wanted to be publicly acknowledged, and very few people included the screen name, so we are going with Mr and Mrs. Anonymous One through Eight for now. :)
Again, thank you ll for your generosity!  8) ;D
