  • 10/7/04 - "Another thank you from a reference librarian. I'm nobody important. In fact I really am a trained grade school teacher, who came out of the classroom after twenty years. BS 1974/ MS 1980 Indiana University. One of our patrons' at the Gary Public Library told me to try during 2002. I tried it. I went out and bought my own pc, even though I use the libraries all day for free. I realized this is the reason to own a pc. My knowledge has grown exponentially. The people of Gary, Indiana thank you. We are all smarter because of you." - F.S.

  • 9/25/04 - "I have finally sent in a donation so that you can continue supporting this wonderful site. I first learned about the site when my children were in grade school, and internet research took forever to find factual information. They are still using it, and they are now in college and doing well. I am currently using Refdesk in all my adult continuing education classes; as a quick link to medical information in Medical Transcription, for a quick reference page in Office Procedures, and as a sample page in Introduction to the Internet. Every one of my students has appreciated the link, and are all using it at home too." - M.P.

My way of supporting the site is by recommending it to everyone I know.

When I get a job or publish a book, I'll contribute towards refdesk." - L.P.

  • 5/7/04 - "Thanks for your creation. I wish I would have had this back when I was in college.

I am also happy to have just contributed $ to your effort and will continue to do so. Thanks again." - T.W.

  • 1/24/04 - "I am enjoying so much! It may seem strange to say this, but I think you have changed my life! How so? one might ask. For one thing, I don't waste any time sifting through 'hits' that are really junk. Your website helps me find things in a jiffy. In the last 24 hours I have looked at hotel room rates, researched geneology, read the news, read about the solar system, learned about Barnes & Noble University, printed out a map, and looked at a cool website with interesting toys and gags. Additionally, I am encouraged to learn new things each day and be entertained by intellectual pursuits. Bob, you are making me smarter! Thank you, and have a great day!" - B. P.

  • 1/17/04 - "It's been a few years since I have first thanked you for the work you do with Refdesk. When I gave my kids a computer they were in grammar school and I forced them to always have refdesk as their homepage. Well, they are now in high school and one is almost off to college, and guess what...Refdesk is still their home pages but now totally on their own. In fact, my son has built several computer systems for people and always makes Refdesk as their home page when he installs their computer. He has gotten more thanks for the Refdesk tip than for the computer itself!" - M.F.

  • 1/5/04 - "When I think of the Internet and smile...I think of RefDesk. Why would anyone want any other 'homepage'? Why is it so few people realize that this IS the reason for the Internet? Thank you X 1,000,000!" - C.C.
