ADOPT THIS SITE

This site, www.backyardnature.net, is set up to be financially self supporting. It receives a little more money from the books it sells through Amazon.com than it costs to maintain the site. Automatically Amazon.com electronically transfers money into a bank account, and the Internet server regularly makes electronic debits from the account.

Still, someone needs to pay attention to certain details. Specifically:

  • Periodically the bank account's debit card information must be updated at the server, else the site will be deleted and the domain name, www.backyardnature.net, will become available to anyone who pays for it.
  • Links on this site's pages regularly are broken as other sites disappear or change their Internet address. These links must be removed or updated.
  • New material should be added to the site constantly.

Jim, born in 1947, is in excellent health but one never knows. He has no family or friends interested in handling the above details. Also, Jim lives on the fringes of society and has very little money, and at any time could disappear from the Web simply because he can no longer pay for access.

Ideally a nature club in the US (where the bank account is located) would start gradually taking over the site and a committee would take the responsibility of dealing with the above matters. They would be provided information for the various accounts involved, and if suddenly Jim disappears they would be prepared to take over the site completely.

If you are interested, write to Jim.
