I'd really appreciate a boost, 'cause Project Wonderful shut down earlier this year, and we could do with some word of mouth.

Please remember the golden rule, or the silver rule, or the laws of robotics. What do you want to see in the world? How would you like to be treated? We're all responsible for this. We're all responsible for ourselves.
