Sorry for mentioning this again but I think it is a very worthy cause.
Steve Cottle's attempt to secure pledges to buy a great comic archive is near the final hurdle and he only has 33 backers so far and is just over half-way to his target. Please consider donating and promoting the cause through Facebook, comic blogs etc. Steve gives a lot of his time to preserve some amazing stuff and the least we can do is offer some money and/or a little bit of effort to help promote his project.
Payment is through Amazon payments but if he doesn't reach his target you pay nothing.

Subject: 8000 pounds project - time is running out!
I would urge members to pledge a donation to Steve Cottle's admirable attempt to secure a marvellous collection of comic strips for his ilovecomixarchive.com website. There's only 13 days to go to secure this wonderful resource. It's a no-lose situation - if he makes his target, a wonderful archive is preserved; if he doesn't, you don't pay any money.
The pledge page is:
Steve is halfway to his target but he only has 25 backers (a couple of whom have been very generous), so come on guys - show your support for dedicated scanners like Steve. Oh yeah! and post his pledge page URL on Facebook and write a little about his
project - spread the word. I have.
