Just a small milestone today on Apnea Board...

We now have over 20,000 registered members!

Our 20,000th member is lamplighter.

Lamplighter, I've sent you an email and a duplicate Private Message (PM)... as a prize for being our 20,000th member, you are the winner of a one-year supply of CPAP filters... simply reply to my email or PM and let me know the exact make and model of your CPAP machine & give me your mailing address before the end of this month, and they will be shipped to you free.

Congrats

Hey folks:

This is a good place to mention something our host SuperSleeper is too polite to do himself.

Help

At the top of the Forum page there, between "Rules" and "Supplier List" is a "DONATE" link.

Donate is also down at the bottom of the page in a "Yellow Pill Shaped Button".

If you find Great-info here, and CAN AFFORD to help a little, please consider making a (small) contribution to keep that Great-info flowing.

If you are one of those folks who can barely afford your equipment and therapy don't give it another thought, continue to contribute by asking good questions and helping others.

But if you, like me, are someone who can afford a $4 coffee or a $5 beer or $whatever, then consider giving $10 (or $10 Euros or $10 samolians etc.).

There is PayPal there as well -- I like PayPal because I don't need to give out my credit card number.

Help

Okay

Thanks

Sweet Dreams,

HerbM

Great reminder, Herbm, I haven't donated in awhile so that's what I'm going to do right now. I've learned so much from the people who ask questions and answer them on this forum. Thanks to EVERY ONE.

And people shouldn't feel weird about giving a small amount; $5 shows you care and if all 20,000 did that then SuperSleeper would actually MAKE money.

Even if just a few hundred give $5-20 or equivalent in rubles etc. then it will be a good start to taking the "sting" out of maintaining the Internet server and forum.

Thanks to you all for your kind words and your contributions to the forum (both in helping other patients, and for donating to help keep us online).

Apnea Board is very unique... there's a great group of folks here who love to help other people. It's you all who have made Apnea Board what it is today. It's really amazing to me.

Thanks to you all.

Thanks
