Moss' Sponsus Closed ... or is it?

 I have told all my sponsors that I am closing my Sponsus. Only one of them has ended his giving. I am very humbled by that. So I contacted the guy who wrote and runs Sponsus. He said he would shut off the connection to Stripe, which should end it. Well, three months later, I'm still getting payments from Stripe. 

Really, guys, I don't need the money now. There are a couple guys on mintCast who have an open Patreon, pick one of them.

As always, I am extremely grateful for all gifts. I'm just not sure what to do with them now.

None of this was anything Owen could have known about or Dale could have prevented. [Dale interjects re: his skill level] We have another keyboard ordered, it should get here later today or tomorrow.
