"WOW! I am impressed. CD's arrived today, safe and sound, and I have had a quick run through and everything is working perfectly. Such service, thank you!...I am not lucky enough to have Broadband as yet so my surfing pleasure was somewhat limited by the idiosyncrasies of a dial up modem, so you can imagine my delight at being able to access your site without continually having to wait hours for images to load." - Bobbie S.

"I've never paid for screen savers until now, but the obvious effort and scope of work, is significant. Thank you." - Diana S.

"I understand that many patrons of the arts do their donating anonymously, in order to avoid the attention of con artists, etc. In this case I am willing to take that risk. And perhaps my example will rub off on others." - Charles Kimball

"Thank you for an excellent site! Since I found my last umpteen desktop backgrounds on your site I thought it was about time to show some appreciation ;-)" - Stefan S., Netherlands

"I have just made a donation to your site and want to thank you for all your work and for the sheer pleasure of being able to visit there and study at leisure!" - Yvonne R.

"Thanks for your site. I just sent a small donation...I wish it could be more, but it's all I can afford." - James A.

"Just wanted to let you know that I have put my check for $50 along with the form for the Patron Program into an envelope which will go out tomorrow. Your generous response to my request confirmed my opinion of you and what you are trying to do and was the incentive to make me realize that my enthusiasm for this site deserves to be more than words. Thanks again." - Betsy Y.

"This is a theatre designer that sent you an e-mail a long time ago about this sight when it was still in the early stages. It has come a long way and I have sent many people to you in hopes to give you some funding or to at the very least spread the word about this amazing resource that is out here on the net. Once again, thank you for this sight and all of your hard work." - Jimmy W

"I'm an art history student from Barcelona. Usually I visit your home page and I like it very much, it is a good resource for me.
