I have been sick for the past week and a half. I have not been tested but the symptoms are consistent with the covid-19. The severity of the of the symptoms was very mild; the worst part is just the absolute draining of desire to get any work done.
Because I believe that the COVID-19 will lead to a very strong world wide depression, I will be lowering the patron tiers to help out my patrons. I will make the change in the system along with video announcement next weekend. I'm just shooting you this short message so you can change your contributions before the April 1 billing cycle. The new tiers will be
public supporter $2 - 4 : all public announcement and status
Patron Passenger $5: All EM technical videos
Patron First class $10: All EM PDFs; Spread sheets; Plus executables
Patron Engineer $15: Ethereal mechanics related software source code
Patron Bridge Officer $20: Voting rights; bridge officer meetings (we need to schedule one). Ability to contact me. -- I would like to add more benefits to this -- let me know if you have ideas
If you want to support this project at your present contribution levels I would be greatly appreciative.
These lowered levels are in effect until further notice.
