The time has come to change the way this web site operates and considering removing the ads plus completely revamping the format to include support for portable devices.
I would never go the route of some web sites with numerous pop up ads and other very disruptive behaviors. However, the revenue from advertising continues to decline and shows no sign of reversing the trend.
Please consider donating a small amount towards the operational costs (hosting plus materials used for article prototype construction). I’ve started a kickstarter campaign that includes a bonus for generous donors.
Thanks for your consideration of making this a user supported web magazine.
