If "ESR" means anything to you, you already know why you should subscribe.
By subscribing, you will support my work on internet and open-source software that is now essential to the way we live now. You need my work to view images on the Web, or use maps on your smartphone. When you get a driverless car one of the critical components in the navigation system will be my work.
THE GOAL REACHED!
$5000 per month to cover my and my wife's recurring expenses.
