Afraid I don't have a Paypal account. Is there any other way to donate?

Thanks once more for everyone's kind help.

I looked for this thread using the search tool as soon as I saw the Cafepress link in the website but didn't find it (the search tool in the BB is next to useless).

So I created a separate thread. I have since killed that thread and I am posting the question here now that I have stumbled on this one:

Is putting this link http://www.cafepress.com/oolite in the links page of Oolite's website really a good idea? Yes Giles should have the money. I am not saying anything against that. But as Oolite is really a derivative of Elite's intellectual property that exists because no one profits from it. Braben's could easily shut us down, after all isn't that what happened to Elite:TNK when money got involved? I just don't want to see us getting shut down.

If Braben isn't going to care about this tiny amount of money I'm all for it btw.

I'm utterly overwhelmed by the donations people have made.

Thank you, everyone. There's a bit of cash left over in my account, which I'll put towards next year's costs.

I don't know how to thank you properly. :oops:

I also can't use the inbuilt search tool very well, however I find Google very helpful. I have the Google toolbar installed and I do a search using the following:

Code: Select all

searchterm site:aegidian.org/bb/
Using the site: parameter to limit the results to the BB is a good tip!

Good idea JazHaz!

I took you idea and ran with it, and have made a browser search plugin that lets you use Google to search the Oolite BB directly from your browser search tool.

Most games have some sort of paddling-pool-and-water-wings beginning to ease you in: Oolite takes the rather more Darwinian approach of heaving you straight into the ocean, often with a brick or two in your pockets for luck. ~ Disembodied
