Jon & the rest of the LWN crew:
I've chipped in in the past, I'll do it again if it's of any use. But I just don't know what kind of money we're talking here -- all I know is: "we have not succeeded in raising even a fraction of the required funds", from the front page.
So, what are we looking at? How much is required to secure LWN for, say, the next year?
Unless the number is truly terrible, I think yearly subscriptions are the way forward. I'm doubtful one-shot donations are really all that great -- after a while, when funds run dry again, you're in this mess once more.
Subscriptions: $50-$100/year. I'll chip in. I'll make my company chip in.
P.S. If this is truly The End, then Goodbye and Thanks for all the Fish. It was tasty.
