I Need a Parrot - again  
Since so many of you offered to help out with the cost of hosting the site, and after much internal and external struggling about it, I've decided to take the advice I've received today.

If you would like to contribute financially to ensure I Need a Parrot can continue in it's current location, thank you.

Paypal details - mara_jaded @ hotmail.com is my registered email address there. I've never received money via Paypal so I'm not sure how one would go about that, I'm guessing one would log into one's own account and use the 'send money by email' option?

The current webhost cost for 12 months is just under 100GBP (200USD aprox), if more money is raised I could refund it to you, or donate to charity (I was thinking maybe the Stuttering Foundation of America and Equality Now which are supported by Nick Brendon and Joss Whedon respectively), or possibly put the money towards a second year's hosting or a move to a better webhost - any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Due to my current offline-at-the-weekend status, I won't be able to respond to any comments here until Monday, I will set them to screen in the meantime.

(And yes, I'm posting this and running away because I get uncomfortably awkward at times like this - I genuinely appreciate your support and the incredibly generous offers of assistance I've received. Thank you all.)

Thank you so much - I will of course keep your real name off the record.

Thank you again!

It was killing me inside to think of giving them up, but if it had to be done then so be it. People have been so generous though - I nearly have enough to ensure two year's hosting now

Thank you - I got it this morning (well, I'm sure it was there earlier but I could only confirm it this morning when I logged in).

Thank you again!

Thank you! As I said to someone else recently, I got so used to be called Mara or MJ that I still answer to it in person. In RL it's Shona or Sho, but Mara works for me too!

I got it this morning - thank you so much!
