Thanks for your support. Yes, $10 does make a difference, especially when many people make the donation. Good to see more supporter tags out there. Let's all donate what we can. I know Shawn will appreciate all that you do. I know I appreciate all that he does :)

Hi all

I don't want this to come off as a copout but I don't even have a
bank account of any kind. No credit cards, no debit card.

I would contribute to this for sure as Brink is a very big help to me!
His Tutorials' are beyond compare. His attitude when helping people
is exemplary. It seems as though there is no time when one can come
to this site and not find Him logged on. His time here is appreciated!

Is there another way I can contribute to the fund?
z3r010 please let me know through PM.

THANK YOU BRINK!

People in the states can use Western Union online at http://www.westernunion.com/

You'd need to know of a Western Union location near you that you could go and pick the money up from or you can have the money deposited into an account.

Just tossed in $30.00 as that's all i had in my Paypal at the minute and can only hope this small donation will add to getting Brink the computer he more than deserves for all the help he's given me with my stressed-out posts!

And for God's sake Shawn, go for Intel and not AMD, mate!

Come on everybody, let's put our hands in our pockets and help the Administrator of Vistax64.com, Shawn Brink, get himself a GREAT computer not just a good one.

I'm unsure how many people are Members of Vista x64 and how many come here for help every day, but it must be in the many thousands and I think there's currently around $900.00 or so in the kitty so far.

Comeon everybody, we can do much better than that for someone who dedicates his time, money, resources, and much more on keeping this site alive.

Without Shawn Brink, many of us wouldn't be able to run Vista to it's full potential.

As they say, from small seeds, big trees grow, so don't think your contribution whether it be $10 or $100 won't matter, because it will and it does. Every bit of financial support you can offer Shawn Brink to help him purchase a decent PC I know will be very much appreciated by him and will be a significant step in the ongoing operation of this website for all Vista users.

Warmest regards

Neil
