these fifties are burning a hole in my pants! Where do I sign?
Sorry, I'm broke too. Please take me back to the homepage!
Longtime readers are probably aware of the current bandwidth situation and the fact that hosting the site has gotten steadily more expensive as it has gained popularity. What started as a $10-a-month pittance is now becoming a non-trivial money sink. We hope to use donations to help offset the hosting bills.
Donations are entierly optional, and you shouldn't feel as though you're required to send us money for ANY reason. You're not a thief, leech or <insert any other nasty name here> just because you enjoy our site but don't want to / can't contribute funds. This isn't a PBS guilt telethon :) We maintain this Web site as a hobby, because we don't like the direction things are headed and would like to keep consumers educated, and because it's an educational, entertaining thing to do instead of watch TV. So, it's a rewarding experience for us, regardless of expense. If things do become too expensive to handle, we may make the site available intermittently, e.g. the first portion of each month, until the monthly bandwidth allocation runs out. Placing obnoxious advertising on the site will be avoided if at all possible.
Any donations received will go exclusively toward site maintenance costs, and will not be used for other purposes. These funds will not be used for buying books/CDs/computer parts/pizza, car repairs, service packs for Girlfriend 2.0, or other unrelated expenses.
We've set up accounts with PayPal and Amazon's Honor System to receive funds. You can use whichever is most convenient for you!

Other ways you can help
CEXX.ORG's spyware information is often used by computer tech-support folks and helpdesks to help users treat spyware-related problems. If some of you helpdesk folks can convince your higher-ups to send us a few bucks now and then, this would help a lot. We hope to continue providing up-to-date spyware information and restore procedures, free to everyone. (Maybe you can start billing these spyware companies to cover the expenses their shoddy software incurs on you, and send us a small percentage ;-)
Don't like sending money over the Internet? You can also send a cheque to our server administrator, who will put it toward hosting bills:
26 Princeton St.
Medford, MA 02155
Note: If sending a check, please make it out to a person and not the Web site address; the web server can eat $ but it can't deposit checks.
Thanks for all of your help!
Bill and the CEXX.ORG folks
