Brother, Can You Spare a Dime

I know I'm a little late to this dance, but my good friends at CorrenteWire had a little fundraiser:
Final results: $138 total recurring monthly contributions (new and previous Patrons combined) and $120 in one-time contributions.

Mighty Corrente Thanks to all for sharing your hard-earned dollars. Especially with the looming recession it means a lot.

We didn’t reach the goal but there is enough to keep the hamsters going at full speed for another couple of months.

To make up the difference we are looking into advertising and maybe another Pr0n-based pledge drive since that one worked out so well last time.

While the drive is technically over, they still would love some help. Lambert, the Maitre d' over there, was the first Big-time Blogger™ to add me to their blogroll, and he was the first to extend front-page privileges to me. For that, I'll always be grateful.

Also, not known to many, he doesn't use Blogger, or WordPress, or Movable Type, or any of the mainstream blog-writing tools. Instead, like a real mensch, he codes the whole thing using Drupal, and that means he doesn't just sit down and use pre-built tools, but built the whole thing, brick by brick, by hand. It's really a rich place, with great writers, including Leah & MJS here in L.A., and the truly lovely and talented ChiDy.

Great job, Lambert, Applause all around.
