"...unattachment means enjoying life without attachments. We can party on weekends, but work when it's time to work. We can enjoy material things, but we should not be its slave. We should control our emotions instead of letting our emotions control us. We should learn to enjoy life and its different forms of expression without being attached to them."

All I'm saying is to share you're plans and give us a reason to contribute.


The plan is to pay the hosting bill. The day people donate too much we'll consider going beyond paying for hosting.

Convictions are more dangerous foes of truth than lies.

Oh, Zeus.... I can't find that link where Br. John (was it?) who quoted the server-hosting-per-year price. With tax returns due in soon for some people, this is a good time of year to revive this conversation.

This works on poor people like me. If it's an open-ended donation scheme, then I feel like less compelled [reasoning too voluminous to even attempt here]. But if I see "We're 90% (450.00$) of our goal (500.00$)," then I can justify 10$. (That just jumped us another 2%!) Now, only 4 people @ 10$ can help us make our goal!

Point being: when it's broken down, "our fair share" doesn't seem as large; it's a psyche game, but it DOES work. How many places have you driven by that have that big "thermometer" for fundraising? Notice how those almost always "burst over" (with the red liquid drops bursting forth)? There's a reason: 50 people see that "they're so close~~!" and donate what they think is 5% (maybe 10$~50$), but they don't know they're one of 20 people who did the same thing. Surplus.

Just my 2¢ (pense).
