Hi Micheal, all, Since the zim paypal account has been slowly accumulating more donations I will add 100 Euro to that from the donation fund. Shall I add it to the bounty list on http://zim-wiki.org/contribute.html ?
Btw. also thinking to up the other two open bounties to 100. Regards, Jaap P.S. as you may have noted, I'm back online and sorting through my email - sorting through the new bug reports will take some more time I'm afraid...
