I didn't think Illpolo.com would exist in 2017. I almost announced my
retirement a few times in the past few months but held out hope there
might be some miraculous way to find the time, the money, and a different

me from doing it.

Donations would help. Support and an offer to send scores or updates would
be cool. A new job would be awesome...but I'm not expecting the world.
Just a bit of help to keep this little thing going. And a retweet every
once in awhile, of course.

story for another day."
Keeping this site going in 2017 would probably mean more to me than
anything else I've ever done. Anything you can do to help would be
