Actually JS, I thought it was surely you.

Oh dear. I read through this and realized it was only a lapse on the part of the administrators way back then that caused the problem, but what if, what if? Administrators, if you would not mind, could you tell me how much it costs per month to keep this site running? (A personal email will do just fine if it is a sensitive subject.) I’m not going to make a premature commitment to paying for an entire month (especially if the price tag is some out-of-this-world amount), but I do think this site is important (as I have been reading your posts since 200, and I would like to contribute as much as my student loans will allow (I told those bastards in Ottawa, those responsible for issuing loans, that I was forced to live in one of the most expensive rental suites in Victoria, which is a damn expensive place to live in to begin with [when really I’m leeching off a friend]). I would like to donate a small amount, so an estimate would be great.

I'm afraid I haven't the faintest idea, Firmin. The site is owned by the mysterious missing fifth admin, Wavid, who comes by once in a while. He did take donations until a couple of years ago when he set up his own business and then used to charge the running costs of Palimpsest as a business expense. However he's no longer self-employed, so he may call for donations again sometime soon. There's no PayPal link at the moment but if he feels the need for contributions, he will let us know how to make them. And thanks for the offer!

Yes, I'd be more than happy to contribute what I can as well.

Sounds good, Mr. John Self. If you find this elusive admin, and if he is desperate for donations, let us know.

I may be seeing him in the real world tonight, actually - I'll mention it to him!
