Help Contribute to SLK World Forum!

To my fellow forum members and visitors,

Here it is, ten days into April, and we have only contributed $45 to the security updates, repairs and monthly expenses that keep this forum operational. Repair costs for March were not met. Even in these tough times, if every member could reach down for any amount, even $5, it would help the forum to the benefit of all. Contributing is easy. Just click the 'Donate Now' button at the top of the main page. Thanks!

I agree. Monthly donations have become a necessity and are a month to month fix. Key to success for SLKWorld.com is a strong following, active forum participation, and long term commitment via paid supporting membership. Silver supporting membership is only $15 per month. Small fee for universal help and support. To non paying members, as a minimum, become a silver supporting member. For current members, consider upgrading your membership to the next level. $trength in numbers. To our long term members and contributors, my thanks.

Always looked at the forum as a cost / value equation, and so far I'm still ahead - great value for money...

Bump!

Show me the money!

Money is like manure. You have to spread it around or it smells.

The safe way to double your money is to fold it over once and put it in your pocket.

There is a very easy way to return from a casino with a small fortune: go there with a large one.

Car sickness is the feeling you get when the monthly payment is due.

Inflation hasn't ruined everything. A dime can still be used as a screwdriver.

I am opposed to millionaires, but it would be dangerous to offer me the position. ~Mark Twain

They who are of the opinion that Money will do everything, may very well be suspected to do everything for Money.

When I have money, I get rid of it quickly, lest it find a way into my heart.

It is an unfortunate human failing that a full pocketbook often groans more loudly than an empty stomach.


The real measure of your wealth is how much you'd be worth if you lost all your money.

Only when the last tree has died and the last river been poisoned and the last fish been caught will we realise we cannot eat money.

The only reason a great many American families don't own an elephant is that they have never been offered an elephant for a dollar down and easy weekly payments.

No matter how hard you hug your money, it never hugs back
There are no pockets in a shroud.

Waste your money and you're only out of money, but waste your time and you've lost a part of your life.

There are people who have money and people who are rich.

Money is a headache, and money is the cure.

Life shouldn't be printed on dollar bills.


It's good to have money and the things that money can buy, but it's good, too, to check up once in a while and make sure that you haven't lost the things that money can't buy.

"Your money, or your life." We know what to do when a burglar makes this demand of us, but not when God does

Inflation is when you pay fifteen dollars for the ten-dollar haircut you used to get for five dollars when you had hair.

A bank is a place that will lend you money if you can prove that you don't need it.


Business is the art of extracting money from another man's pocket without resorting to violence.


Always borrow money from a pessimist, he doesn't expect to be paid back.


If you lend someone $20, and never see that person again, it was probably worth it

Every day I get up and look through the Forbes list of the richest people in America. If I'm not there, I go to work.


If you think nobody cares if you're alive, try missing a couple of car payments

Money is better than poverty, if only for financial reasons.

I don't like money, actually, but it quiets my nerves.


It's a kind of spiritual snobbery that makes people think they can be happy without money.


When it is a question of money, everybody is of the same religion.


Women prefer men who have something tender about them - especially the legal kind.


Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy you the kind of misery you prefer.


Money often costs too much.


When a fellow says it ain't the money but the principle of the thing, it's the money.


They deem me mad because I will not sell my days for gold; and I deem them mad because they think my days have a price.

I'm so poor I can't even pay attention.

It frees you from doing things you dislike. Since I dislike doing nearly everything, money is handy.


We live by the Golden Rule. Those who have the gold make the rules


When I was young I thought that money was the most important thing in life; now that I am old I know that it is.



I am having an out of money experience.


If women didn't exist, all the money in the world would have no meaning.

Thanks to everyone for your support, with the attacks we took last month the repairs alone were well over $1,000 plus the normal costs to run the site. If the majority contributed a small amount it goes a long way. This month we only have $125 in donations, but the month's not over yet!

Can't give?

Not sure if I donated or not. I filled everything out and submitted it. Got this message:

An error occurred while trying to report this transaction to the merchant. An e-mail has been sent to the merchant informing them of the error. The following is the result of the attempt to charge your credit card.

This transaction has been approved.
It is advisable for you to contact the merchant to verify that you will receive the product or service.

I'm guessing I may not have cookies enabled or something else that broke it. Now what?

(not a satisfying experience )

mtiede - I don't think it went through. I've had issues with this since I've purchased the site. You can try it again or you can send a paypal donation to [email protected] and I can manually credit your account here.

Thanks everyone for the kind support.
