[R] R Founding

I cannot speak for the R Foundation, but you know, getting a US check 
into money is roughly 20$ fees (at least in Germany, don't know the 
typical Austrian conditions).

I know from organizing a conference in Germany that the only really good 
way was and is ordinary money transfer via BIC and IBAN numbers. 
Unfortunately, this system is pretty unknown in the US. Europeans can 
easily use money transfer to the R foundation.

Credit card bookings are already rather expensive and even more 
expensive if you go for online processing rather than manual Fax 
processing (I do not know why the credit card companies prefer Fax), 
checks less than several hundred euros do not make sense at all.

Best wishes,
Uwe Ligges
