Sorry, are you accepting any kind of donations ?

Recommended Posts

That's funny, I just happened to be looking at your account as you registered.  :-P  -- you'd think it was the php logo that caught my attention but I actually only saw your username first.

 

I really appreciate that you want to donate.  Over 10 years ago there was a link for donation, maybe I'll bring it back.

 

If you really want to help testmy.net... talk about it.  Your word-of-mouth drives my engine.

 

Spreading the word is most valuable.  If testmy.net helps you all I ask is that you talk about it, write about it, link to it or just continue to use it.  You wanting to donate already means a lot to me. 

 

Thank you!  Hope to see you around here for a long time!

Be sure .. my next plan to make something bigger than just few words ... sure thing the word is very important for people who knows its value, but sometimes we need more than words.

 

so sorry for my delay but I had some terrible days, but now I'm Okay. the first thing I did (On Line) after the silly days are gone wrote this reply ?.

 

don't forget to tell me about what was interesting with my username ? 

 

Thank you for your quick reply ... and I really do apologize for my late reply.

 

please keep in touch

I'm so glad I ran across this thread. Years ago (like maybe 08/09) I was using an ISP called Clearwire., later just CLEAR. They claimed to provide 10Mbps.I always used the Speedtest.net dashboard they had on their site. I would get results between 8-12Mbps, sometimes even 15-20. One day I ran across your site while at an Internet cafe in Seattle. (Uncle Elizabeth's). I went home and tried it on my computer. I kept getting results of 1-2Mbps.I called them and was told TMN was extremely flawed. LOL Of course as you're probably aware  Sprint bought the entire Wimax infrastructure and CLEAR was no more. I've been telling people for years about TMN and will continue to do so. I remember the Donate banner, but only had a checking acct at the time. Today I sent you a gift. A $1 for each of those 10 years I used your service and hard work. (Wow in print that $10 looks so Lame. Maybe I should go back and make it more). I think you should put the banner back on the Home page. With everyone begging for handouts on Kickstarter and the likes, someone whose already done and been doing the hard work deserves some financial rewards. My observation over the years has been that all great things (IRC, Netscape, Speakeasy,,Linkedin) if not financially rewarding as well as personally rewarding, eventually disappear into the corporate abyss.

Again Thanks for your dedication and hard work.

I  will continue to spread the word and hope to be here to support for many more years to come.

Hey Denny!  Not at all, I think it looks awesome, even more so because you've been visiting that long.  I'm flattered.  Thank you!!

 

Thank you so much for the support and words of encouragement.  Sometimes it can be a little discouraging, feels like only a small percentage of people understand the actual difference TMN has to offer.  I used to be okay with, "some get it, some --won't." --- but really, it's my job to make it more attention grabbing and understandable.  If people aren't getting it yet, I need to do a better job yet of presenting and explaining my program.

Funny how many times I've heard that over the decades... yet the people telling me those stories continue to visit, often for many, many years.  You for instance, continue to visit for over 10 years after being told TMN is "flawed".  You obviously called them on their bullsh*t right away.  ?

Truly, TMN is a puzzle I can never complete.  Right now, even with a new version out... it's not even close to the design and functionality I've had in my head all of these years.  One day I'll get it all on paper.  (it's funny how far away I am, like pull your hair out -- insanity kind of funny.  But I love it.)  -- what makes it especially fun to me is knowing people find my creation useful.

 

Thank you so much for spreading the word all these years, I always appreciate your patronage and support!

... okay fine, I'll add the donation button somewhere people can actually see it.  Pinned this topic too.

 

Thanks for going the extra mile to find this topic.  :cool: -- I hope to see you around here for 10 more years and beyond!
