If you'll look at the tote board it seems as if the pledge drive has petered out. That is just sad. How much do we each spend on our APA dues? What do we get? A magazine and more dues, that’s it.

Here at Cyburbia we get great commentary on current events in our field, we see planners in love with their craft, we learn acceptance of others, we get some insight in to the struggles others have endured, we get good planning tid bits, and we get a place to vent when the day has just sucked.

Dan, through Cyburbia, offers us genuine handcrafted html that rivals professional web sites. Here at Cyburbia we get a place to load our photos, we get a compendium of planning resources, and we get howlingly inappropriate commentary from some very bright people. This is a good place, a special place. The burden of keeping the lights on should not fall on the shoulders of one man.

If you were to donate $25 that comes to less than 7 cents a day. You don't find values like that anywhere else in this world. So, can we all give the home Dan has built for wayward planners one more deep dig into our personal finances for the Gipper (Dan)?

Let’s each pay our fair share. :)

hey, they were just giving their $0.02! :) Do the amazon sales go into that figure above? I bought a few books last week off of this link, so that could be where it came from.

Sent my check last week. Tried to use paypal, but had to practically donate a liver to try and get them to switch from my maiden name to my married name.

Damn paypal is giving me fits too. Tried to update address andn credit card info and now I have to wait till my next statement comes to get a confirmation code, go back, reenter, grrrr.

EDIT: Finally got 'er up and going. My pledge should be in your hands Dan! (dunno if paypal attached my name or just my hotmail email account).

looks like the money is slowly but surely coming along. But don't expect anything from me -I'm a cheap bastard.

poor & starving in Texas

I'm a poor, starving college student in Texas, but this site is well worth a couple of pizzas! I'll be sending a check next payday! Heck, my APA dues may become my Cyburbia support payment. Cyburbia is more useful & fun anyway!

What happened with the Amazon thing? I too spent money on Death and Life of Great American Cities, and Suburban Nation.

I will see if I can send something in when I next get paid.

Although I am not in the Double (or Triple) CLube :), I do "post too much," so I'll send in another check.

I donated $11.06 to Cyburbia over the weekend (8/10/03). It hasn't shown up on the "Donations June to Present" yet.

Did you receive it?

PayPal has confirmed the payment on my end.

PM me if you have any questions.

I chipped in to save a little of the hotlinking. Dan, you should have my check on Wednesday if the PO still delivers.

Ok all you poor grad students... I just sent in my pay pal contribution. It was easy and painless. Now its your turn.

None of us student have $$$ -- especially if you're an older returning student with a mortgage, car payments, and other debts. Consider it part of your book & supply costs ... that's how I'm going to justify to my hubby anyway.

Consider this a challenge like they do on radio fundraising drives.....
