In Europe's EURO zone (guessing from your name, that would likely be the
case) SEPA transfers are usually easiest (account number on request) as
the fees must not exceed in-country EUR transfers.  U.S. and U.K. and a
number of other countries get fewer fees via Paypal (this mail address
works fine).  However, I have to warn that I expect not to do a whole
lot for LilyPond in the next month or so.  I should have started
physical therapy this week but the respective clinic is booked out and I
enquired elsewhere.

The social worker dealing with my case is apparently spreading herself a
bit thin, so I need to improve my tactics.

In other news, I am currently doing my shopping/transportation basically
by foot which is taking its time but is safest for me and other traffic

And I'm having semi-permanent neck/head ache making focusing harder.
Control over my larynx is not exactly good: swallowing still
occasionally goes bad.  The right vocal fold is mostly paralyzed in
closed position yet and if it doesn't become accessible in a reasonable
amount of time, I'll probably eventually no longer be able to sing alto.
That's currently troubling me more than not being able to tell
heat/cold/pain on my left body side.

But even with some distractions being off-limits now, at the rate I am
being able to focus on complex tasks, I expect to be able to only
contribute lightly to LilyPond's progress in the next month or so.  Not
a whole lot of bang for the buck I am afraid.

At least apart from the head/neck ache and from the necessity for
physical exercise and keeping my blood pressure at tiresome levels, my
intelligence has not taken a hit: it's really mostly damaged wiring to
various body parts that I have to work with here.  But of course I need
to get the body back into a shape where I get along with moderate effort
in order not to take further hits to my bodily health.

In a nutshell: I'd appreciate support but it will be a bit of time
before I deliver good value for it again.

All the best
