      You can mail a check directly to me, a couple of people chose that option.  The checks were written to me, but now that we have a bank account, I guess you can make them out to Mid-Atlantic Retro Computing Hobbyists.  Still via my home address, 18 Colonial Terrace, Springfield, NJ, 07081.
      Err, hey Jim S., maybe they should be mailed to you instead?
      Anyone who chooses to do so should (please) tell me ahead of time.

      Personally, I had a bad experience with PayPal some time ago and now refuse to use it. Is there an alternate way to donate? I have no problems paying my share. I just need a way to do it that I feel comfortable with. I am new to the group, so if there is a different way to pay I apologize for this letter and could someone please diret me to where the infvo is located.

      Hi Gang:

      I've seen periodic references to the "financial condition" of the 
      group, and right now it appears that outgo exceeds income.  Not a 
      good thing.

      I've also noticed from the web page that there are 99 members in the 
      group.  Naturally, not everyone has unlimited funds and has to be 
      mindful of how their own money is spent.  But certainly, more of us 
      could send -something-.

      But, it seems to me that if -everyone- gave at least $5... the group 
      treasury would be in good shape.  One way some of you could even to 
      that for free might be to open a PayPal account.  I'm not sure what 
      the current policy is, but it used to be that PayPal would -give- you 
      $5 just to open the account.  Even if that's gone away, PayPal is a 
      useful way to send money via the web.

      (Disclaimer: I have no affiliation with PayPay other than being a user.)
