That is, indeed, a good looking page. So we could have another page that
looks like that, with a link to the mousepad page and including the other
giving options. Or whatever works best

Thanks. The subscription thing is pretty easy to set up, and makes life
easy. I think (as Ron L already noted) making like NPR and spelling out what
our needs are - what things cost - will encourage them to help. Saying
$1000/month doesn't encourage optimism, but breaking it down into smaller
chunks might.

you're welcome. just because i don't always participate in the discussion
doesn't mean i don't care
