See the menu item "Pus Related Merchandise"? That is where you can purchase my books and Android and pdf versions of the app directly.

Like Public Television, you can assuage you guilt and pay for the use of the content.

Or, as noted in Quackcast 86, send some money where it will do some good instead: and follow the instructions to donate; to donate to the clinic projects, people must specify for the donations to go to the Bupoto clinic project.  For Partnership Uganda, people can go to and follow the directions under the "Support" tab.

Of course, the two are not mutually exclusive.
