This.
Over at NoGrip (rip) it was possible to see the monthly cost and how much that was covered by donations. If not an automated solution maybe a monthly update of how much of the server bill is covered by donations?

Hope Mr. Boss gets well and that it works out for Bill's workplace.

I can hardly afford to put fuel in my road car. I certainly can't afford to attend a motor race as a spectator. With GPL I can drive a Lotus 49 round the Nurburgring. That's got to be worth at least $1 :up:

much more cause you can spare a lot  with the Covid 19 effects

Hi all
Thank you for the best wishes, support and contributions!
I feel blessed to be apart of such a great group of folks. I can't thank you enough for your kindness, very much appreciated.
Bossman is not doing so well but hes giving it all he has... one of our other employees is also infected and is very close to being put on a ventilator.
We all hope that they will be ok and pray for a speedy recovery.

I'll update as time goes by.

Thank you again so very much

Best of luck to you all Bill.

As we say here in Bergamo and became the famous phrase last pandemic spring:
Mola Mia! which means approximately: don't give up

This place is a gold mine of resources on GPL and a testament to how great the GPL community is, so I felt like I should do my part.

I hope you're doing ok Bill, thanks for everything.
