For the Record: Weekly FTR Contributor Review and Technicalities
Hello everyone, once again it’s the time to thank the contributors, it’s you who keep FTR running after all! This time, following people donated via Paypal: Lars R.T. (Denmark) – extraordinary donation! Simon S. (Sweeden) Thank you both, guys. I really appreciate it. Now, for the Patreon cycle – this time, everything went smooth. Today marks the fifth time the Patreon subscription got successfully used, thank you all! Out of the 530 USD pledged at that point: - 500,10 USD came in successfully (the rest didn’t go through for some reason on the contributor side, insufficient funds on account etc.) - out of 500,10 USD: 43,71 USD went to credit card fees 25,04 USD went to Patreon (service fee) leaving 431,35 USD for FTR – much appreciated! The list of contributors can be viewed here. Big thank you goes to all of you, but especially to Tugboat1964, who continuously supports FTR. I will do my best not to disappoint. Now, the technical matter: I normally don’t say what I spend the money for, but this time, I’m going to mention that I am going to use the extra cash for something I haven’t had for ages (years, literally): a vacation. From 7.8. to 13.8., I will be on a vacation abroad. That means that apart from the translations, there will be no extra articles (with one exception – leaks, if there are any, as they are very easy and quick to post). I am taking my laptop and – IF the wifi is any good – translate the stuff in the evening (probably later than usual). In any case, I will do what I can. Yes, it’s a vacation, but the show must go on, as they say. We’ll see how it goes. Anyway, once again, thank you all for your support!
