MoA Needs Money II

Two days ago I asked for financial contributions to Moon of Alabama.

A big thanks to all of you who gave something and to all who would have liked to give, but can not afford to do so. It is the intent that counts not the money.

It seems like this may sum up eventually to afford a new blogging machine, though not a gold plated one.

To those who missed the call and want to contribute, the necessary information is here.

i get "Page Not Found - PayPal" when following the link. tried it in different browsers to make sure it wasn't blocked by my config tweaking on firefox. anyone else encountered that?

@b real - did you use the "Donate" button here? Works for me and seems to have worked for others too.

right. that's what i tested. doesn't work from here, but it's not just the link on the moa page that isn't working for me. from the paypal homepage, i get the same error page when i click "send money". will try from a diff location later today.

@curious - thanks. Of course you can give whenever you want, but do not feel obliged. I am not that tight myself yet.

All: This blog doesn't live off money, but off the comments you are adding to it.

Why don't you just lose a ton of money on bad mortgage-bond transactions? Then Ben Bernanke will write you a check for $14 billion...
