Time to pay up.

I have offered everyone ample opportunity to contribute to the upkeep of the forum.

For those who have ignored this opportunity, I now have a new inducement, inspired by the tax collectors of Patna, India.

Re: Time to pay up.

I believe I paid up once. Your post reminded me to do so again but I can't find out how. Shouldn't you have a Paypal link on the home page or something? Or am I just missing something right in front of my face?

Was it there all the time or did you guys just put it in to make me worry about early Alzheimers? I paid - now I have to recalculate my SWR for the year.

Re: Time to pay up.

I paid too. Hope it got there. I had a message from Amazon something like

<blank> (nothing there) thanks you for contributing to the Early Retirement board etc.

hope that doesn't mean my contribution got lost in the ether....

Me too! Paid last month I believe, but the site lacks a good confimation process. I think I ended up thinking it hadn't happened, but a couple of days later the debit showed on my account.

Re: Time to pay up.

I appreciate all the response to what was mainly posted as a bit of humor!

But what am I going to do with all those singing and dancing eunuchs I signed up?!
