Ladies and Gentlemen, readers of Spontaneously Combusted Literature, Capital of Nasty, Twilight World and surfers of the Scriba Org web server.
Scriba Org's presence on the Internet has so far been possible through the good will of a handful of people in Toronto. The previous Internet connection was, however, of the understanding that it was temporary, and that I'd take the server with me when I moved to Georgia. Now the server has been moved, and through the lack of contacts in the area, the server is now with a commercial ISP in Smyrna (just west of Atlanta, south of Marietta). This, of course, means that like any other non-profit organization, in order to stay online, Scriba Org needs to make money. You are not required to, but asked very kindly, to donate a handfull of money to Scriba Org in order to keep it online. It costs us US$320 per month to stay online, which is not much for the many, but a lot for the one. (Especially when the one doesn't have money to live on)
By supporting Scriba Org, you secure the continued presence of fine literature such as Spontaneously Combusted Literature, Capital of Nasty and Twilight World on the Internet, and at the same time give the organization enough time to find new ways of funding its continued existence.
