I'd like to hear comments about the fund(s) for TSVN. It's not like we
have a fund where all the contributors get something from. Currently,
only Lübbe and I do have our PayPal accounts and wishlists linked from
our website, so all donations go directly to our personal accounts.
I'm not sure if the other contributors like the idea of having Lübbe and
me get all the money - I think it was ok as long as we only get
donations from time to time, but this could really become some regular
(btw: I was shocked this morning when I checked my wishlist - it was
EMPTY! Someone must have ordered the four CD's I had on the list ;) )

Lübbe's still on vacation. He'll be back in one or two weeks (can't
remember what he told me). So maybe we should wait for Lübbe to return
and check with him too.
(On a sidenote: can you believe that Germans get 6 weeks vacation a
year? And they have holidays to make up yet another week! And now I'm
hiding behind my sofa so I don't get hit on my head by Germans on this
list ;) )
