No matter where you go on the Internet, you find all kinds of information on page after page on millions of sites around the world. Keeping those sites on line is a never ending task when it comes to time and effort, and full (independent) websites like this one, kickit.to, and copperknob are not free and they are not cheap. It costs (in most cases) hundreds of dollars just to pay for the hosting and the domain name. That does not include the costs for programs used to design the site. Throw in just a minimum wage for those folks keeping the site fresh and updated, and the cost jumps significantly to  thousands of dollars per year. If you see a chance on a site to donate even a few dollars to help or become a member, please do so
