This site is a non-commercial site. It has been created cause I was involved in a EDIFACT project at work and I saw that many people had difficulties to understand what EDIFACT is and how it works.
So I started to collect some information about EDIFACT and added my own (tiny) knowledge to it, that was back in March 1999. It all has been done in my spare time. You may understand that sometimes required changes remains undone - simply cause I have not the time to do it.
Well, the site isn't hosted on a machine of my own. That is because I cannot guarantee that the site will be up every time. But my provider can. Unfortunately they don't do that on a voluntarily base - they want to get payed for the service. My webspace provider isn't that expensive but it is a position I have to pay regularly.
So, if you like that site, you may add some bits to my fund (which is continuously empty). No need to make a millionaire of me - me and my family are happy about every buck which could stay unspent. If you don't like to deal with money via Internet, you may take a look to my wishlist at Amazon.
Otherwise, when clicking on the <PayPal>button on the left side, you will see a form where the text "Donation to edifactory" is predefined as the item description. You need only to enter the amount of EUR you are willing to donate. Also, you can directly create a new PayPal account there if you do not have one yet.
Now, all what I can do now is to thank you for any kind of donations you will do or had already done.
Thanks a lot!
