  3. Its becoming harder each month to keep this site floating on the web. As Adsense money is now four months apart, I'm covering the rest of the monthly bills.
    There's been a handful of donations which help a little but more regular donations are needed if this site is to stay alive.
    I know it's tough for everyone but if you can spare a little it would be awesome.
    P.S. Once again a big huge thanks to the last donations!

    This is great. I hated copying/pasting the .lua stuff and we also don't have to mess around with the localization file. This automatically does it.
