    I was on the site the other day and saw it moved toward "Dying" on the fund meter... so just an FYI to everyone who uses Pinco's and loves it. I made a donation but I can't keep Pinco's alive alone can't afford it.

    Now it's been since July and I'd hope that Pinco had found new gainful employ since then but the world economy being what it is I am not holding my breath on that.

    I did a small donation that is set for recurring yesterday, and plan to donate more before the end of the year.

    I use it and love it, and therefore will help in keeping it alive.

    So if I am right 4 people have donated and that bar has not moved. Strange.

    Since he's unemployed, the expenses the money is going to probably extend to "food", "housing", "utilities" etc., at the moment.

    Er, Pinco IS a he, right?

    No clue.

    All I know is that Pinco lost his/her job back somewhere around June or July and said he/she would be quitting UO ..... I think the funds pay for his/her internet, account/accounts/website... I was hoping this being almost 6 months now that Pinco would have been able to score a new job by now.... must be a tough market. Anyway that was my understanding... and I have gladly donated.
