And it's really that easy, is it? Do you know I have to pay taxes on
our donation money? We're not a non-profit organization. You can't
just donate to a person and make it a tax writeoff. There's many many
things in there that I think you're missing.
More to the point, it takes EFFORT from people. The last upgrade took
a lot of Dale's, Dan's, and my time.
It's easy to sit on the outside and say "It's easy! Just do this!".
There are many many hurdles. Throwing money at a problem isn't the way
to fix it.
