Did you know, this web site had been in continuous operation for over 12 years?  And during all that time the webmaster had not been reimbursed a single penny for the operation, maintenance, security, updates, file storage, software, e-mail messaging, internet access,.... 
I figure, at the very least, I'm owed work vouchers for the next 12 years.
