If you feel this is a service to you, I recommend that you make a contribution to WikiMedia Foundation. While you are prompted to donate a minimum of twenty dollars, you can make lesser donations of ten dollars. (Any less and the costs of processing eat up any benefit of the donation.) I think a donation of ten dollars is certainly appropriate and a gigantic savings to you.  If you benefitted from this and want others to benefit as well, I hope you will choose to donate as part of the community of learners and scholars.
