That file (and several others at The Good Old Days) is on a server that only allows one connection at a time. I'm not sure, but I don't think its on all the time either, Mr Creosote would know better than me ;). So just wait a while and try again.

As Tuss said, this is one of the files stored off-site. Every few weeks, I'm turning the server off for the weekend (i.e. when I'm not at home). Try again on Sunday evening.

PayPal showed you a page in German? I'll have to check on this...

For the time being - thanks for the donation! PayPal got one third of it, unfortunately, small sums are just not too well suited to be sent via this service :(

I know, they take chunks of it, which sucks. I would have sent more, but I had about 2 dollars in my account... Give me a few days Ill send more ;)

Ill try again tonight though, and thanks. I am rather impatient sometimes :p

I just checked, don't even ask why I'm doing this at 0:00.

The page came up in German.

I'm totally out of ideas now, so I asked the PayPal people. Hopefully, they'll come up with something.

PayPal just sent me some totally useless information where to click on their site to 'create' a donation button, but without actually answering anything to my real question. So I search on and on and on until I found a PDF manual of 168 pages which contains all the reference data about what options can be used in this form. One of them claims to set the interface language. Could anyone check again now?

No, it isn't. Please - if you have an error, do read the appropriate message and quote it. I can't help you otherwise.
