Donate to OLDaily

Yes, it has only been a year, and I'm asking again. I have maintained OLDaily and the rest of this website at my own expense since 2001. It is not subsidized by my employer or anyone else. I've always been happy to do it, but I need your help. Click here to Donate.
This site gets a lot of traffic - 476K unique visitors and almost five million page views in 2017. 1690.37 gigabytes of traffic. On average, it has cost $125 a month for the last ten years (currently, it's $US 140, or almost $200 Canadian, per month). Thank you to everyone who helped last year. I raised just over $3000, which paid for the server and the traffic.
I am committed to keeping all my services and resources free, and will not add a subscription to any part of my website, ever. That's a promise. So if you help me provide this service, I'd be happy to recognize your contribution, as thanks, on my Donation Page. More...
