I should be able to commit. I'm well-versed in HTML, image editing and a decent proof-reader/editor, but I'd rather not do too much editing since I'm starting something along the lines of a magazine on my own site. W…

Yes, but one would need to find the time. Ardik is pretty busy as it is. A bit of a bootstrap problem... -- The time I did it, it took about an hour to set up. Here's the concept. A single landing page for the appeal.…

Thanks, Ardik, for your long and interesting explanation. I'm glad you're on your feet. That was my main worry, that you weren't. I'd be reluctant to run a campaign to stock your store, I'm sorry. I have no problem w…

For those who don't think there is anything specific you could get for the site, I'm responding to this: "A recent update would be some $700 - not an option." That sounds pretty specific to me. As to perks, I'd…

What vedranaster said. I'm neither willing nor able to "supervise" BookCrossing. Basically, we would talk to them, find out what they needed, set up a goal and fundraiser, and launch. It would be a trust thing that t…

Lytteltonwitch and anyone else wondering: The fundraiser, if done, would be for a specific stated purpose, not "general funding," with a goal such as "software to upgrade to a new server." Ardik mentioned a figure which …

So, a question for you. If BookCrossing members put together a Kickstarter or an Indiegogo campaign to get you your $700, would that solve the problem for you, or is that just the tip of the iceberg?

Dianne Day was a mystery writer that some of you may have enjoyed. She was a close friend of one of my close friends and I knew her, briefly, through an online forum I used to run. Dianne Day passed away earlier this mon…

Goodness! It's years and years since I heard about Die Neuen Leiden...how interesting. And I did eventually read The Catcher... though not because of that book.

Came across this fun Bookcrosser-friendly project while receiving notifications for something else. Thought it might fit right in here. :) http://www.littlefreelibrary.org/ http://www.queenanneview.com/2013/02/15/a…

I promised to come back and update. While we fell $100 short of the fundraising goal, the net result was that two days ago two wonderful, amazingly shiny and fast computers arrived at our home in the desert. I call that …

A penguin hat is actually seeming possible. We have until midnight (a shade under 12 hours at the time of this posting) and only $600 to go. So, if you could give the campaign a tweet, a like and a shout-out, maybe even …

MissE changed it to be collapsed by default, so it should be easier now. :)

We're in our final 12 hours now so if you could spare us a tweet, FB-like or even a contribution--that would be marvellous. We're 70% of the way there. :) http://www.indiegogo.com/markeronisite/

Here's a really cool write-up from MissEfficiency. She accompanied me as I hobbled around St. Louis on a gimpy sprained foot--and got hooked. I didn't realize she'd got hooked at the time. It was one of the very first jo…

That's very kind of you Faramir! I'm usually around, somewhere on the Internet. :) Fort Worth seems to have been one of those very fondly remembered events. :)
