AnnyStudio.com info page
Over a decade ago, this website was created, under a different domain name, as a field for my web-design and web-programming experiments. A bit later it also became a means of sharing my thoughts, reviews, interests, small software tools, utilities and articles that turned out to be very popular and useful for many people. Making them freely available was an attempt to return some goodness back to this world for all the free, helpful and useful things the other people made available to everyone else including myself.
A historical fact: for a long while in the past, searching for “Anny” in any search engine was bringing out only one result — my website. Which means, you are currently on the website of the first Anny in the Internet. It is almost like the first human on the Moon, except that the Internet seems to be more important to the mankind these days.
Support and donation options
If you enjoy using my software, pictures or anything else found on this website, you can make a donation to contribute to the site's web-hosting and running costs, or support one of the organisations I would love to see continuing their good works.
1. Have a look at the RedBubble
To reward the author of this website, you can have a look at my art on RedBubble and purchase something you liked. My artist’s royalty is about 10% of the marked price, which may be less than I could get via a direct PayPal donation, but I will be much happier to know that you liked one of my designs. Plus, you will receive something nice, too. :-)
2. Donate via PayPal
Please donate via PayPal only if you already have a PayPal account or do wish to create one. PayPal collects an excessive amount of personal information during its transactions, which may make some users concerned about their privacy.
3. Support the Australian Privacy Foundation
The Australian Privacy Foundation (APF) is the primary association dedicated to protecting the privacy rights of Australians. It focuses the attention on the issues that pose a threat to the freedom and privacy of people. The Foundation has led the fight to defend the right of individuals to control their personal information and to be free of excessive intrusions.
To support the APF, please check their “What Can I Do?” page or, if you have access to an Australian bank, make a donation to the Australian Privacy Foundation Inc.
4. Help the environment
Any good deed matters — big or small. You can make this world a better place by doing simple things: recycle everything that can be recycled, rethink you consumer habits and reduce waste, tidy up and clear the rubbish in front of your house, report an abandoned supermarket trolley, plant a tree, or make a donation to a decent non-profit organisation that protects the nature and really makes a tangible difference.
5. Say something nice
If the above options don’t suit you for any reason, you could simply send a few kind words to the author. Always appreciated.
