Okay, guys. So many of you may have noticed that Alan hasn't been around much lately. This is because he's having problems with his eyes again. Because of this, he's unable to work or do much of anything else. It turns out that the corneas in both of his eyes are severely damaged and he might need cornea transplant procedures. Because of all this, he can't pay bills and everyone knows medical stuff is expensive. It also means he can't really be in cbox cause of all the dark colors. So here's what you can do. If you want to help Alan out financially, even a little bit helps. You can send money through paypal to firstname.lastname@example.org or he will provide you with an address if you want to mail cash or checks, but you have to let us know in that case. If you cannot afford to help monetarily or even if you can, another way to help is to call Alan and keep him company through this. If you want to call Alan, send me a PM and I will give you his number. For those with phone anxiety or whatever who just want to pass on wellwishes, leave a post in this thread and I will convey your message to Alan. Please do consider leaving a kind word. Alan is a wonderful guy and it sucks that he is going through this, so he needs our love and support at the moment.
