There may be a reason for that... they are very good. :) Anyway, please, no further discussion of them unless it's really important.

Can you make it open in separate window?

Try and make sure people know not to click-spam. I've seen people lose their ads (along with any money that Google hadn't sent them by then) because of well-meaning visitors clicking all the time to get revenue.

that happens on searchfeed, you get some random visitor constantly clicking, their ip gets logged and you, as a partner, get emailed and acussed of abusing their service. maybe implimenting your own limiter would stop this.
Thanks,
Adam Reece.

Yes, please don't go clicking like mad, it doesn't really help that much.

I really wanted to donate to my favorite forums, but at the moment I am very short of cash myself. (And that's really short, but that's not your problem.) I'll look in to it again in about 3 months or so, when the problems at the student funding agency are sorted out...
I heard the stories that they tell of how they labored for this company which sold it's soul to hell

It's my alter ego in my avatar, not me!

I've had another donation now, so thanks to Eric Strauss for that. Any more, as and when people can, are obviously greatly appreciated. Note that as Adiungo currently seems to be a bit better than before, I probably won't move the server at the moment, but you never really know what will happen in the future (plus, the server will need paying for again next year). In addition, we've exceeded our 75GB bandwidth limit by over 15GB this month, so that'll have to be paid for (it's $1/GB, IIRC).

Thanks for all donations recently. I was pointed towards a very reasonable and apparently reliable host (I have a friend who has several servers with them) which I may consider using in the future if we can make a bit more money. :)

No problem for the donation. Can we ask who this reliable host is, and what they will provide for us? :)

Basically, it's a 1.8GHz Celeron system, with 1.25TB bandwidth, 80GB hard disk, 512MB RAM, which should be plenty for us for a long time yet. ;)

Couldn't say when it'll arrive - maybe a week or two? Also, we'll see how much is left after I get it changed at the bank! But thanks for your donation! :)

A nice lump sum of £20 has been donated this month so far from me, I hope it to be more later in the month. :D

How is the hall of fame sorted? By date, or by money?

Should be money :P
