Just reposting this in an effort to boost sales a bit...
Well, it's that time of the month again... when by tradition Mrs Skamanc ignores the Virgin telephone Bill, so the Broadband (which I pay her for) is cut off again.
This, in turn, severely curtails the amount & quality of Broadband I receive (Plan B = a Tmobile dongle, that is, frankly, shite), and, as a result, limits my up and downloading capabilities. I go to the public library when possible, but : (a) Its closed at 4am on a Sunday morning, which, by sods law, is usually the time I enter a marathon spell of working & (b) A lot of uploading sites are forbidden by their server.
Without wishing to moan, even the Broadband payment is difficult, as I'm self-financing my Tech College Auto Electrics Course via E-bay sales (easier said than done), and I've reeived no benefits since July due to a wrangle over the Mrs' part-time earnings. (She's a test pilot in a broomstick factory lol).
As a result, I'm planning a fund raising raffle for the forthcoming month - the raffle will run through November & prizes distributed early December.
"Tickets" will be £1 each, and prizes will include a selection of music books, CDs and bootleg DVD's (I have a huge collection of 2Tone / related stuff etc).
Anyone interested can send a pound via the Paypal "donate" button (located just above the Visitors Web Counter) - please include your name & address details in case you win. As stated, I'll ship prizes out early December, and will post a full list of lucky winners. Anyone wishing to remain private / anonymous should let me know with their contact information.
As always, anything raised over the required running costs will be donated to the "Help For Heroes" charity in the UK, which assists disabled / injured current & ex service personnel.
Thanks & good luck...
