Patreon, Paypal, Plasso: We accept your support in a variety of ways

As many of you have probably heard, Patreon -- the service that we use to process most of our patron donations -- was the victim of a database hack. To quote Jack Conte, the CEO and Co-Founder of Patreon,

There was unauthorized access to registered names, email addresses, posts, and some shipping addresses. Additionally, some billing addresses that were added prior to 2014 were also accessed. We do not store full credit card numbers on our servers and no credit card numbers were compromised. Although accessed, all passwords, social security numbers and tax form information remain safely encrypted with a 2048-bit RSA key. No specific action is required of our users, but as a precaution I recommend that all users update their passwords on Patreon.

So what does that mean to Apple World Today patrons? Well, you should probably go out and update your password on Patreon. But if you have a concern about Patreon -- as developer and AWT Twitter follower @GJNilsen did, you might want to consider using Paypal for your monthly or annual donation. 

At his suggestion, we added Paypal support. You can find the subscribe button at the right. You'll see that the Paypal page (image at top of this screen) refers to our holding company, Raven Solutions, LLC. Note that your successful pledge of support takes you to a "sekrit" page where you our patrons can gain access to our Slack channel. Now, if we could only add Apple Pay support...

There's also a third way -- Plasso -- to make a one-time donation to AWT if you're not into making a monthly pledge. Click that "Make a one-time donation" link to go to Plasso.
