Donations towards server hosting costs

Hi - someone asked about a donations link.

The direct costs of running the WhatIf Modellers forum aren't huge. Yearly domain name renewal, monthly server hosting costs. Some hours of my time patching, and upgrading the forum and the server from time to time.  However, its been several years since I last asked for donations, and my forum funds are running pretty low. The New Zealand government now charge me GST on hosting fees now which is annoying.

I know for many people, things aren't great now financially, so there's no expectation on my part, but if you can spare a couple of dollars, it would be appreciated.

If you make a donation you can choose whether its for Both Forums (default), Secret Projects Forum or What If Modellers Forum. This is only for my interest :)

Do not condemn the judgement of another because it differs from your own. You may both be wrong.
