I'm a British mathematician, been in the Netherlands for 35 years ("chercher la femme"). Recently became a double proud grandfather. Have a compulsion, but it's not secret, to want to correct miscarriages of justice involving abuse of science, see Dhamaka's plea

THE 9-11 was my 50th birthday. That's why I use it in my internet name, but English fashion, 11-9. The other part is my surname.

Dec 9: "This morning Lucia was very down, about the fact that it's going to take so long. She is down to her last penny. She doesn't get any social security and the two of them are living off Peter's minimal social security payments. If anyone has anything to spare financially, the bank account information is: L.I.Q. de Berk, Den Haag; account nr. 436916 ING/postbank. Perhaps a nice thought for Christmas. IBAN: NL27INGB0000436916. BIC: INGBNL2A. ING Bank N.V., 1000 AV Amsterdam, Netherlands"

Gorgeous image

I think if people on moblog wanted to give it would be smaller donations, which would of course add up - but it would be easier to send them to someone probably by using paypal as all you need is the email address - then that person could pay them in.

Good idea Viv. I suppose I could get myself a PayPal account. [actually, inside the Euro zone, one can pay by internet bank transfer for free; but you poor UK people are still out in the cold, even though 1 pound is 1 Euro.]

Steady on :)

It is not cost that is the problem it is ease - it really is so easy to do this way - no numbers to enter - no bank details shared etc

Don't worry Viv. But I am very impressed by your swift action. :-)

And Lucia will be delighted.
