Topic: MRC

Aaaaah, it's Christmas time... If yer old like us, you 'll remember Santa's greatest gift underneath that x-mas tree; a spanking shiny new MSX computer. If you were that lucky. Well, thank you Santa! Such wonderful memories keep us young and generous, not? This time of year makes us reflect and realize we had yet another wonderful year together. Another year in which our hobby unites us.

The spirit of MSX never dies, no sir. Not if we can help it. With the MSX Resource Center, or MRC, we do just that. The one stop MSX site that brings us geeks together and do crazy stuff. We take new steps, create software and hardware, talk about technical stuff in our forum, spend time downloading new bytes, read up on new, or even old, releases. It is we, the MSX nerds that keep on coming here, at MRC.

MRC is a place for 8-bit lovers to hang out and speak their minds. And to make that happen, a team of very serious Z80 addicts maintain this cave on a voluntary basis with nothing but love. But it is not love that pays bills. For that we simply need money to keep servers spinning, bandwidth open, domain naming preserved, and what have you. To keep on going we ask all of you, MRC visitors, to contribute. Give some hard dollar love.

Please remember to support our website also for the next year. The MRC has set up a donation button for this purpose, which allows for one-time, but also monthly recurring donations. With that you help us maintain this page. Every sum helps! Thank you for your support, and love of course.

Have a wonderful Christmas for you and your loved ones!

Yours, the MRC admin crew

I have a small (~ one Big Mac) automatic monthly donation setup, but I wonder: is it better to send the sum as a yearly contribution, or keep sending monthly payments?

I also did a monthly donation. Well, for me it is better I guess, so I do it that way.
Since we ran out of money early this year, a recurring amount is certainly preferable, especially since the donor may forget to cancel it after the end of the year. Tongue
Be sure that every donation is most welcome and we do all this for your (and our) pleasure!
Thanks sd_snatcher!
