|Donate via our webstore set-up: You can donate via our webstore system, using the form below. You can pay via cheque, money order, or credit card, with or without a PayPay account.

Nitrozac and Snaggy
Box 77 Union Bay,

We are also affiliated with Amazon.com, so if you do shop there, you can shop through this link, and help support our work at the same time. We also have a page of Geek-related books up.
And we also now have an Amazon.ca affiliation for our Canadian fans. :-)
And we also now have an Amazon.UK affiliation for our UK fans!
What's a good number?
Well, any amount at all would be very much appreciated. Perhaps you think our work is worth a buck, perhaps worth a few dollars a month, or maybe more. Think about whether you would care at all if this website wasn't here, or our work was not available for free viewing like it is. Would you miss this place?
Your support is very much appreciated and helps us Keep on Geekin'. When someone takes the time, energy, and moolah to give us a tip, we also receive a humongous emotional lift!
What will my donation be going towards?
It costs real money to keep our site up and running... our hardware, the hosting, the bandwidth and all the other costs of maintaining this site and its two creative human components. It's a lot of work, but chances are good we can keep doing this if we can get some support from the people who visit us each day, either via people buying our merchandise, or via donations.
We try to provide you with some darn good entertainment and diversions. The Joy of Tech, AY2K, the polls, the rest of Geek Culture, the Forums, cool links, and a lot more. It is, in our humble opinion, pretty good stuff. Your support will allow us to continue bringing much needed laughs to the tech industry. We’ve been there from the beginnings of the Internet, cheering on the Rise of the Geeks, as they have flourished and gone on to do amazing things. And we've also been there when there's been a need to call them to task on issues such as privacy, questions of morality, hypocrisy, or just plain stupidity. We feel there is still a need for our type of work, an independent voice that holds a mirror up to the tech world, to celebrate it, but also to occasionally rip it a new one. :P
If you enjoy our work and this site, and can spare a few bucks, then please, see if there's anything you would like at the webstore, or perhaps donate what you think we're worth to you. It's just the two of us doing all this, Nitrozac and Snaggy, and we end up working more than full-time to provide the content here. We'd like to continue doing it, ...you can help.
Why don't you just support the site via advertising?
We do get income from advertising, although that income is not enough to sustain us. We purposely do NOT run offensive pop-up ads, or full page ads, or other awful advertising from our site, and have for over a decade. We don't have native ads or hidden sponsored posts. This was probably not the best business decision we ever made, but we just refuse to be a part of those kind of annoyances. We're are always looking for more legitimate sponsors, and we don't think advertising has to be evil. If used properly, it can work great for all parties.
If you are interested in promoting your goods and services, we can offer some amazing advertising rates and a great market. We have and have had a number of great sponsors, from the ones you see everywhere, to smaller developers like RoadTools, Boinx Software, and Take Control Books, that realize the value of our great rates and audience. Or perhaps you'd just like to advertise your own site, your homepage, say hi to your girlfriend via a web banner, or sponsor the comics for a month or so. Just let us know, ... we are highly adaptable and would love to work with you! :-)
We don't expect to make a lot with donations, and we don't want to have to depend on them, but they do help, and in more ways than one. In all seriousness, the thought really does count. We know how much you have to care about something to make a donation, so when one does arrive, however small, that really perks up our spirits, and, quite honestly, makes our day. :-)
What else can I do?
There are lots of other things you can do to support our work, besides buying stuff, bookmarking us, ordering a cool Nitrozac portrait or painting, and visiting us as often as you can. Tell some friends about the site, add our amazing self-updating thumbnail to your webpage, post a link on a message board, spread the word via word of mouth, write your favorite magazine and suggest they run the Joy of Tech, or *gasp*, even think about advertising your product on our site! With your help the fun will continue well into the future. :-)
