I think this may make for interesting reading. My copy will 
theoretically hit my mailbox on the 14th.

If you wonder what the "smile" Amazon subdomain is about, Amazon will 
donate to your designated organization a modest fraction of your 
purchase price without it affecting what you pay for your goods. Durham 
Makerspace (aka Splatspace) is a deserving organization and is easy to 
look up and register by going here 
<https://smile.amazon.com/ch/27-3411181>. The "smile always" Chrome 
extension 
<https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/smile-always/jgpmhnmjbhgkhpbgelalfpplebgfjmbf?hl=en>makes 
it easy to automagically cause your purchases to kick a donation to your 
designee without having to remember the special URL. There are similar 
extensions for Firefox 
<https://addons.mozilla.org/En-us/firefox/addon/amazonsmileredirector/> 
and Safari <http://distrustsimplicity.net/articles/keep-on-smiling/>.
