Many many thanks to all our sponsors who donated $5 each and enabled us to adopt a gorilla infant from the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund website.

Top billing must go to Sweden's "Duke of Dunstable", proprietor of the biggest and best Douglas Adams news and discussion group on the web - namely The Douglas Adams Continuum. We received a triple donation from the Duke which enabled us to reach our sponsorship target very quickly. Thank you!

Since the demise of MJ Simpson's Planet Magrathea, The Douglas Adams Continuum has flourished, and thrives as the best place for Douglas Adams fans to meet and discuss The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy plus all his other work. Check it out.

Also, thanks to a posting on their discussion forum, nearly all our other sponsors came from the ranks of Continuum members! Thank you all!

The ever dependable David Haddock sent in his $5 too. David is a regular contributor to Another Chance To See, and is also very active member of ZZ9 Plural Z Alpha (ZZ9), the Official Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Appreciation Society. He contributes regularly to their quarterly magazine Mostly Harmless. Dave, if there's another website you'd like me to link to, let me know.

Daldianus, from Luxembourg, runs a couple of blogs, Soon To Be Gone? being "kinda inspired" by Another Chance To See. He recently posted his Kakapo Parrots entry. Daldianus also runs Thoughts Of A Straw Dog.

James Thrift, from Salisbury in England runs 1770 Online, a site dedicated to providing all that is best in contemporary design for you and your home. It's full of interesting goodies for your home, and is well worth exploring.

Stefan Jacobs from Germany runs The Orca Homepage, a massive guide to the magnificent killer whale. The site is packed to the gills with Orca news, facts, links and trivia.

In addition, I would like to thank our other $5 sponsors, Scratch, MoonGoddess, and Dave Stanley. If any of you have a website you'd like me to link to, do let me know.

The order with DFGFI is in process, and I look forward to revealing the name and picture of our adopted infant very soon. I will supply all sponsors with a copy of the adoption papers when they arrive, which will be in about 4-6 weeks I believe.

Thanks again to everyone!
