The background story

I used to have a PayPal Donate button available here until 2011. However, as it turns out, personal and organizational fundraisers are not allowed in PayPal terms of service, which is why I had to discontinue this service. Existing donations were refunded. Many thanks to everyone who donated so far, my apologies for any inconvenience that may have been caused. The honors list is available further below.

The Donate to Dedoimedo! banner will remain posted online throughout the site for clarity purposes, including any questions or issues by people who donated in the past and might need to return to this page. However, the mission statement has changed.

Best way of supporting Dedoimedo

Other ways of support - buy other items!

Since donations via PayPal are disallowed, you can support Dedoimedo by buying from this website.

If you honestly believe my website deserves support, then you might be interesting in purchasing a token item. Shopping baskets are available for both my Linux Kernel Crash book and the Great Linux World Map v1.0 and 2.0.

Now, please note that these items can be still downloaded for free, without any need for registration, login, limitations or restrictions of any kind, and will remain so forever. However, the book and the map are also available for purchase, with several available prices, ranging from USD1.00 to USD50.00.

If you are interested, please visit any of the three pages to complete transactions, via PayPal.

Now why would you want to buy from Dedoimedo?

I am not going to lie to you. I do not need money to help me cover the website costs. I do not need help making a living. Website business, so to speak, and the day job are doing just fine, no worries there, touch wood. But I could do with some extra extra money for super perks, which is where you step in.

What am I trying to say?

If you like Dedoimedo and feel this compelling urge to support this website, let me tell you what I intend to do with earned profits. I'm going to buy myself a hot hatchback, a small-sized, mid-range sports car. Specifically, we're talking Volkswagen Golf GTI.

Where I live, this car costs USD75,000. Now, since I'm going to have to pay approx. 50% taxes on my business profits, we should aim for roughly USD100,000 just to be on the safe side. As you can see, I'm being fairly modest with my desires. I am not asking for something as outrageous as Pagani Zonda or a Lamborghini. I not asking even for Golf R. I will do just fine with Golf GTI. So there we go, our goal: Golf GTI Mk.7, preferably red. For illustration purposes:


In theory, since there are some 650 thousand visits to Dedoimedo every month, if every one of you purchased the book or the map for as little as one dollar, we could likely reach the target before the month's end, every month. Even if every tenth person spent as little as one dollar, we would still meet the goal in less than three months. But that's probably pushing it. Let's aim for New Year's Eve, of any given year. That would be a lovely present. If you are interested in advertising your website or business, please take a look at the advertisement service.
