Urgent: cryonics hardship support
LongeLongeCity, in collaboration with the Venturists is still raising funds for the urgent cryonics hardship case of Aaaron Winborn who suffers from motor neurone disease (Lou Gehrig's -ALS). Donations received through this fundraiser will be used only for the purposes of bona-fide cryonics hardship cases. Should we fail to reach the aim in this case or not be able to use the funds, the donations received will be integrated into our 'Bill O Rights Cryonics charity fund and will be used to support others in need of cryonics support.

LongeCity is planning to launch a couple of new features this year. We are discussing plans to set up a database that lists supplements, food additives, OTC medicines etc. The resource will be in the hands of the LongeCity community to populate, maintain and quality control. A small amount of money has been set aside to finance coding effort and perhaps incentivise a few initial entries to get the ball rolling.
Before we move ahead, we would are canvassing views from the community regarding any points to consider, suggestions, preferences, technical advice etc.

One of the brandnew features is our 'Quiz system', still very much in development this is a fun tool to strengthen the educational aspects of our site.
