Hi Joe,

Where is the paypal option so that we can help out with the cost?

(I think you may have let slip once or twice that you are not in the
same financial league as Bill Gates.)

I'd like to get in on the act first, and be the official sponsor for
the Sumo ML for the month of May 2007.  The rest of you would-be
sponsors will just have to get in line ;-)  Just point me to the
relevant paypal option  :-)

All the best, and many thanks for continuing to provide a fine service,
