    After reading: https://www.smallnetbuilder.com/other/other-news/33218-a-new-door-opens

    I was thinking that I would support SmallNetBuilder with something like Patreon as I value its reviews and write ups since I cant really find what I am looking for anywhere else. And I think other people out there would also.

    Would something like that make this website more able to support itself?

    Sorry if this came up somewhere else already.

    Such a thing has been suggested before, but Tim has always politely declined. For example here and here.

    I appreciate this idea and others I have received. But octoScope’s support has solved my funding issue.

    Please donate to a favorite charity instead, or to RMerlin or other developers if you use their free wares.

    You could set up a petreon page and give those proceeds to RMerlin and other developers

    @thiggins I should really keep my add blocking on my computer at work since it in a sensitive environment.. That is also why I was trying to donate/pateron to alleviate some of my guilt.

    I was not aware of RMerlin, will need to give that a run through. :D
