Lots of thanks to recent benefactors:
The Great Ansible® Trademark Initiative. On Facebook in Spring 2016 I mentioned worries about a planned rival magazine "stealing" the long established Ansible title. A surge of support from the following splendid people very quickly funded an Ansible trademark application which was approved and registered by the UK Intellectual Property Office on 8 July 2016.
