Just sent this month's donation, was a bit easier this time as Paypal offered Patrick as someone to 'send again' to.

Well, if the situation is critical at the moment, I am sure many are willing to help out by donations. This however is probably not reliable.

Is there perhaps a way to do some kind of "kickstarter" project or something similar? It would just be another way of donating, but perhaps a more exiting thing, and with a set collection goal to get you out of this jam.

Perhaps something "one time" and exciting would spur the interest of more people. Such undertakings normally comes with several optional "partakings" in the form of different amounts one can pay and different "rewards" for contributing. Perhaps a 100 dollar participation can reward the participant with a "gold version signed Slackware 15".. Not in actual gold, but some fancy DVD version of Slackware to be shipped worldwide? Lesser participation can perhaps bring lesser rewards.

I mean, it would take a fair amount of work to set up and to fullfill such a project, but it could bring in a significant amount. Perhaps think of it as a "one time shop".

I would rather have a "Set it and forget it" recurring payment option. It's simple for me and simple for Pat.

Me too. I remembered to donate again this month, but will forget sooner or later. Having something like a Slackware Patreon which lets me set up a recurring monthly donation would be great.

I already support a few other worthy efforts via their Patreon, so my wife wouldn't even ask questions when it came up on the bill (whereas I've had to explain the Slackware situation to her twice now, and expect to do so again).

I've decided I'm committed to helping with a tiny insignificant amount each month, if something like this can be setup... my thinking is if enough contribute even this much, it will provide Pat with something.

Headed to Paypayl now to do my monthly duty, too.

Exactly.

How tragic would it be if, after all these years, we the community let Slackware grind to a halt out of neglect?

Donated recently via Paypal.me, didn't see a way to add a message of thanks there, so doing it here.

Pat, thanks for making Slackware.

Thanks for making it awesome.

Thanks for sticking to your vision.

TKS
