For any of you who might not be on the main Midrange List, I am reposting the below. David has never himself asked for money from any of us. But, he needs hardware. So, if you feel midrange.com lists are worth it, please send him whatever you think is appropriate. You can go to http://www.midrange.com/info_contributions.htm And Get a mailing address or a link to pay via PayPal (what I used to send my contribution).
