200 000 downloads and counting …

MailPress started in 2008, so is 5 years old now.

First of all i want to thank all donators and contributors who helped me to make MailPress what it is today !

I wish i had 1 euro in donation per download …

From 2008/10/29 to 2012/02/11 i received in donation less than EUR 2000, that is less than EUR 400 a year !

One euro in donation for each download would give EUR 40 000 a year which is, for the unemployed person that i am, a big encouragement to continue supporting MailPress (for free !) …

MailPress this is (stats provided by phpxref)

Summary statistics:
