johnnyrocker can't have read Wikipedia recently, I don't think that Speakers Corner would have answers to some of the peculiar items I have looked up recently, every time something comes up in the newspapers or radio/tv, I can't rest until I find out about it, I know I am an information freak/geek but I can't help it.
In our field I recently leared about the different types of recording on CD/DVD/Bluray and how the burning on our PCs is totally different from the factory pressed discs and influences the life of all the systems.
That's just one item, I can spend hours linking from one thread to another and wonder where the day has gone.
I'm fully aware that Wikipedia may not be all that accurate about everything, but it always astounds me just how good most of the articles are and far surpasses any expectations I would have had for it had someone told me years ago that an online encyclopedia in which anyone could write the articles was going to be made.
I first saw the plea for a donation on Wikipedia about a year ago (I think!), and I made a one-off donation of £7. I feel a monthly donation of £3 is a bit excessive but I'm sure I'd donate again in the future when money wasn't so tight. I'd sorely miss it if it were to go.
