    Hi All,

    It's that time of year again same system as last year:

    Our volunteer moderator team are: David A. Goldfarb, Jd Callow, Ole, SuzanneR and JBrunner. The smooth running of APUG is a testament to their hard work.

    If you would like to make a small donation to them as a thank you and a holiday gift. I've included a paypal button to this post which will donate $5.00US (and produce a flag in my account so I can keep track). I will let this run until New Years, post the final amount, then close the thread and split the donations between them. I will be putting in $150.00 to get things rolling. With any luck the team will have enough for a nice dinner out & some left over for film

    Feel free to post a note in this thread stating you have contributed.

    Here is the paypal button to click:

    Thanks!

    Sean

    P.S. Last years info can be found here: http://www.apug.org/forums/forum38/45214-2007-holiday-tip-jar-apug-moderators.html

    Last year we managed 90 donations totaling $670

    If the Gestapo wants their tips, they should work for it!

    PS. They seem to make some good money, can I be on the team next year Sean?

    Good morning, Sean;

    For the few of us who still live in the early part of the 20th Century, is there some way that we can make a contribution without a PayPal or credit card account?

    I have been meaning to ask you this question regarding the Subscriber Program also.

    John, a real kitchen table would be a great way to celebrate the holidays :smile:.

    Thanks to all, for all you do.

    Merry Christmas/Seasons Greetings/Whatever is Meaningful to You!

    Good morning, Sean;

    What a surprise! You live in the same town as the guy with the little machine shop who invented the Harbor Bridge Machine that moves the concrete blocks over a lane to reverse the direction of travel in that lane. I have been to his shop. It is amazing what can be done with a little bit of thought, a special mold to pour in concrete, and the little wheel from the screw jack stand on the front of a trailer tongue. By the way, here in the Pacific Northwest, the WSDOT people call that machine; "The Zipper." I have no real explanation available for the logic in that selection of name.

    And, thank you for the reference to the "other methods of payment." I do admit to you that I had not scrolled down that far on that page. When the next thing down was a normal credit card, my thought was that I had been forgotten again. I had just assumed that it was a "normal" arrangement for payments. It is surprising what lingering side effects there can be from the death of a marriage. I will arrange for a cashier's cheque.

    Matt,
    Helen would love a kitchen table and with your donation I may just be able to swing it!

    Have a great holiday.

    Reminder

    All due respect to the other topics in this forum, but I thought I'd offer one "bump" so that the 2008 Moderators Tip Jar had one more shot out front for anyone who hasn't seen it. This is a good thing to do (and easy).

    Here is a little something and "Thank you!" to those who make this a very civil forum.

    Cheers,
    Clarence
