This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary
for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees,
the Archive was supported financially last year by about 0.03%
of our visitors.
So if you found
the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
