Hi hammyloz, many thanks for the donation, you can understand running your own website how expensive it can become.
When starting out the there are hardly any costs, but the more popular your site becomes the more costs increase, we receive around 3000 unique visitors per day, thats why the site had to be on its own dedicated server.
cheers and thanks
mrix

i have used paypal for many years now and found it to be fine.there is also a new login added for top security which is whenever you log in they will send you a 6digit number to your mobile phone this number changes each time you want to log in and is very secure and also you need to use a password so i would like to see someone break into a paypal account now

Almost everyone who uses ebay uses Paypal.
Paypal has over 150 million users world wide.
Probably the most secure form of payment option over the net.
I have used it for a few years myself :)
cheers

just to add you also have pride in seeing your name down the left hand side of every page on the site saying you have donated

MRIX - Generating revenues from advertising on this site would help although it would make it a commercial venture for tax purposes. However any loss you suffer could be off-set against other sources of income resulting in a tax refund.
