We have received some big donation/subscriptions. Way more than $20/year. It's pretty embarrassing. We, of course, very much appreciate this generosity on the part of the few individuals who contribute these extraordinary amounts, but we wonder why it is that we need them to make up the pool of funds that supports our server costs and Scare's technical support (the funds are divided in half).Thanks to William Baker for two donations and the generous support from Vincene Muller and Jean-Pier...

While there’s always a chance a World War Z sequel will rise from the grave some day, as of now, the Fincher version is dead and buried.
