I'm the same, have no idea when I last contributed - it feels like a few months but it may be a couple of years!

It is on the first post of this thread ... but I did mean to add it again (and clearly forgot to do so)

Here it is:

Unfortunately I can't furnish you with bank account details as we don't have a bank account - just the PayPal account.

I think you could take a look at this and then maybe it could happen :smt003

very applicable if all we need is a basic account I feel.

I will stash some in today anyway.

Well after the pay monthly fiasco, I've put in a bit today. However it seems strange to me as when I tried to set it up as a monthly payment the account name is different. The link form tyhis page has the account as Kwackerz to start with yet when I tried to set it up as a monthly thing it said Tim. Could this be the reason for th failure ?

Would be good to know :smt003

Indeed - though Tim is not really actively involved these days (changes of circumstances - not a falling-out or anything untoward). Sam probably keeps an eye on us "from above" .... and doubtless pops into the bar named in his honour for a swift JD when nobody is watching (now there's a concept - a haunted virtual bar)

The account we use is the one Tim set up for the forum - he passed the info necessary to use it over to me and Pete - so that we can handle any payments that need to be made.

Just thought that in the interests of openness I would clarify.

Is anything happening?
We are now on the last legs of refurbishing a flat (was a rebuild actually) and so in a couple of months or so when its occupied I'll have some spare dosh to contribute as thats my pension.
