Comics Copyright 2001-2017 by Matthew McAndrews. Website copyright 2001-2017 by Karl Maurer.
Periodicly Modem Problems will feature a link in the top left corner of the page that will take people to an item that the editor of the website has chosen as one of possible interest to our visitors. Sometimes those links are to a place where one can donate to relief efforts. None of these links are paid advertisements, rather they are presented here as a service to the comunity at large and because the editor felt it was a good idea at the time. As with all links like this, they may grow stale and no longer work after a time.

An archive of the links used can be found below, starting with the most recent and working back.

Rocket Dog Rescue
Rocket Dog Rescue is a San Francisco Bay Area dog rescue organization run by a group of dedicated volunteers. They save dogs from death at over-crowded shelters and find them loving, happy homes.

AND
Nine Lives Foundation
The Nine Lives Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit cat welfare organization that rescues cats and kittens from high-kill shelters and at-risk homeless situations and places them in their no-kill facility until they can be placed in permanent, loving homes. Nine Lives Foundation provides all necessary medical treatments for its shelter cats through an on-site veterinary clinic, including those with physical, medical or behavioral disabilities.

Both of the above organizations are located in the San Francisco Bay Area. We strongly recommend that you support no-kill shelters in your own local area, as small regional operations like these are the ones in most need of support and will be better in touch with needs of the dogs & cats (& others) in your area.

Veterans Healing Camp
As some of our readers know, the artist and author of the Modem Problems comic strip, Matt McAndrews, is a Disabled Veteran, having been shot twice and blown up once. His friends Shahla Fadaie and her kids started the Veterans Healing Camp after her son, Forest came come from the war. A camp for Vets and others in a mini farming town in Reno, Nevada.

Star Trek Axanar Indigogo Campaign
Near and dear to the website manager's heart is the force that is Star Trek Axanar. From Star Trek Axanar - Prelude to Axanar (link to full film on You Tube) to the present, Alec Peters and Axanar Productions have created new hope many of the old school Star Trek fans with the creation of Ares Studios. Both 'Prelude' and Ares Studios were crowdfunded through Kickstarter. Now they are running an IndieGoGo campaign for the feature film itself. This campaign, at the time of this writing, Has closed, having raised $574,434 before IndiGoGo & the payment companies take their cut. This looks to be enough to fund about 1/2 the film. Their plan is to film it in 4 parts at this time and it will start filming in the near future. However, there is a lawsuit they need to deal with. For more information on that see their website.

Other projects such as Star Trek: New Voyages / Phase II, Star Trek: Renegades, and Star Trek Continues are made by the incredibly talented fans out there. Please check them out!

Attention Deficit Disorder Association
As the comic strip on May 2th, 2015 contained a reference to ADD, I (the website owner) figured it only fair that I link to the ADDA for those interested in this very real condition.

January 2015
Rocket Dog Rescue
Rocket Dog Rescue, the name says it all. They are an all-volunteer nonprofit group dedicated to saving homeless and abandoned animals from euthanasia in overcrowded San Francisco Bay Area shelters. They literally give them a second chance at life. And everybody deserves a second chance.

CNN's Coverage of How to help Typhoon Haiyan survivors
This page contains a quite comprehensive collection of links to organizations of all sorts that are helping the survivors of the recent typhoon in the Philippines and is likely to remain in place so long as those relief efforts are needed which is why I choose to link there.
