    ADMIN: NavList Operations Contributions
    From: Frank Reed

    A few days ago, in my equinox message, I tossed in a line about 
    "making a donation for NavList Operations. I haven't asked in over a year..."

    Some of you spotted that little note, and four of you made generous contributions to NavList Ops, and I certainly appreciate that!

    Operations contributions cover actual costs like domain registration and especially hosting for the website and message archive which now has several gigabytes of files on it (it's cheap to carry around a few gigs in your pocket, but online it's still expensive for fast-access web hosting). Contributions also cover the work I do on the site infrastructure. I work about half an hour daily, every day, on NavList management, coding, and other development and maintenance. This website, fer3.com, is devoted 99% to NavList activities, archives, and email distributions.

    I understand that not everyone is able to contribute. Not everyone wants to contribute. There's no obligation whatsoever, but it is critical this time. I wish I could tell you that my online workshops could also cover NavList Operations expenses, but those classes are non-essential purchases for those who attend. Registration numbers are volatile, and there's no guarantee at all that they will even cover my expenses.

    Here's the NavList Operations contribution link again: http://www.fer3.com/contribute.aspx?gid=NavList
