Well it was off topic, except that I was responding to trickys question. Craigwd has conveniently ignored the whole point of this thread and tried to subvert it into a hardware what should I buy and will it be easy to set up question.

This thread is about contributing to the upkeep of Jeremy's marvellous site, which I am pleased to be able to do.

'Nuff said?

And this is why we are asking now to stop. If you want to talk about Home Theater systems, create your own thread in General, not here.

And yes, at least drjimstuckinwin actually mentioned "Contributing Member" in his response.

Regards.

Why didn't you just move it? That's what you're here for.

Craigwd - leave it. Your post was in the wrong place. You have had it explained to you why the Contributing Member system is the way it is. And your previous post was just petulant. Move on, you have other threads to be involved in.

Are you just doing all of this to get on our nerves? I'm not a moderator of this forum, that's left up to Jeremy so I will report it to be broken off into a new forum, but being a Contributing Member, I'd expect you to know our rules and know also that you should post in the most appropiate forum.

Let this be your last warning, too many will lead to losing privileges on this site.

Regards.

You have to contribute something before threads get moved. Unfortunately you don't appear to be contributing anything at the moment, financially, intellectually or computationally - except to use up some more space on the server (that you're not paying for). As Xavier says, if you want to start a thread up about HTPC's there's an appropriate place.

That's not true! You mentioned the dual Opteron machine which is related to Athlon 64s by architecture.

Craigwd - for the last time, leave it alone. If you feel you are being treated unfairly email the site admin or a moderator. Do not use this to keep posting argumentative and pointless posts in this thread.

So, make that your last post of this petty argument.

Started a long post about irrelevant topics , but can't be bothered.

Craig - just leave it. If it'll make you feel better I'll start a thread in another forum for people to talk about Opterons or politics or whatever.

A while ago, I decided that when I could I would become a Contributing Member. And so I have done. The extra benefits were not the reason I did this, I did it because i think this site is well worth the $35 and the benefits of simply being a member outweigh those of being a Contributing Member.

I would urge those of you who can afford to donate to do so. If you can't afford the full amount or the $5 per month or if you want to donate a different amount then go to this page to do so.

Note to UK members: $35 in pounds is (at this time of writing) less than 20. One more reason to hand over the money!

Thanks for the site Jeremy.

Well put XavierP,

I wanted to contribute something to LQ, and the Linux world in general; but since my Linux experience is almost entirely asking questions I decided that to become a contributing member would be a good way to give something back and hopefully help the site prosper.

So far I think that I have got extraordinary value for money from the $35 I chipped in
