Wow you guys are awesome in 11 days we are 70% funded; I am so amazed and happy !   

Now the wife can't say "why do you spend so much time on that site it only costs you money..."

Of course I always reply:

Someone's gotta get that to 100%. The email I received said to disregard if you've donated before. So I didn't. Should I though?

I just sent you some. I've gotten more out of this site than any, ever, I think.

This is good news  :)
I have no idea what it costs to maintain this place, so I sent you something out of the blue. Hopefully it was of any help. Since this place here saved me a ton (because I didn't had to buy a new Mac), I don't regard this as spending, but as actually saving money. May OS9 live forever!  -afro-

Hello!
Why donít you create a patreon or anything similar ?  :)

The site was originally created for those on a meager budget and we will keep it in the spirit of that foundation.
Some members have actually picked old macs out of the garbage; and then got the software tools & knowledge here to resurrect them.
While the Patreon account is a great idea, we will leave the donations to those who have the means and find the time to paypal a few bucks,
many core members have donated time and money to keep OS9 alive and I always appreciate any donations received,
but it's not about the money...I will fund the fiscal gap personally for as long as I can into the future, or until the site itself becomes useless.

I am grateful to be in the company of all the awesome people that are part of our community.

This should be a reminder to everyone.

Even though he has a "day job" AND herds all of the cats around here, DieHard is an underappreciated musician just like so many of us.

FEED DA KITTY !!

Yes, but your talents are a appreciated and your video driver mods have made the real difference for many around the globe.

It may seem simple to you, but nobody else thought of it... or even where to start, you are a true hero :)
