I have received alot of great feedback about JabberSMTP and Ransom, and 
have made the time to update the JabberSMTP website 
<http://www.theoretic.com/jabbersmtp> with alot more information and 

I have now made it very convenient to pay me through PayPal, by setting 
up JabberSMTP as an item:
Or just click from JabberSMTP's website 

I will now do the same to the Ransom website 
<http://www.theoretic.com/ransom>, to work on the model in general. I 
plan to fully document the progress of JabberSMTP's Ransom here, to 
provide an output of the experiment.
