    If something is not done VERY, VERY shortly, FAQS.org will have to be
    shutdown. FAQS.org has lost its funding and I cannot personally pay for
    the bandwidth needed to keep it operational. The care and feeding is not a
    problem, paying for the bandwidth is. I will shortly have none unless you
    can help. 
    FAQS.org has been supplying services to the Usenet and Internet
    communities since June, 1996. It has focused on being an
    advertisement-free zone as that is what the community and the authors
    wanted. I respected their desires. In retrospect, it might have been wise
    to provide limited advertisements but that is a sad statement on where the
    Internet and economy went... 
    Please, if you have benefited from faqs.org in any way, take the time now
    to send a contribution to faqs.org. It doesn't matter how large, every
    little bit will help. 
    If you have saved an hour or three, or even more, finding the information
    you needed here, please take the 5 or 6 minutes it will take to contribute
    to keeping this valuable net.resource available to the world. 
    I'm sorry but donations to faqs.org are not US tax deductible as
    charitable contributions. They may however be deductible as an operating
    expense. Contact your accountant for a determination. The same applies in
    other countries where corporations can make deductible donations under the
    terms of "Good Will". 
    This is an immediate problem, so PLEASE, don't put it off. Otherwise, it
    may be too late. 
    Contributions can be made directly or via the Amazon Honor System or via
    PayPal.  Kent Landfield 3245 Meredith Lane Grapevine, TX 76051 Phone:
