1. Added the "How to help page".

2. Re-organised the main nav-menu accordingly.

3. Placed the google search box in all the pages of the site. (for
convenience)

4. Instead of a PayPal on every page there's now a "Please Help" link.

+<latemp_subject "How to Help this Site" />
+
+<p>
+If you like this site, there are several ways in which you can help me with
+it. Here is a list of some of them:
+</p>
+
+<ol>
+<li>
+<p>
+<b>Link to its Pages</b>. Mention it on your blog or on mailing lists, on 
+wikis, as blog comments, mention it to your friends, etc. Please don't spam 
+this site - link to it where appropriate.
+</p>
+<p>
+If you linked to this site, feel free to email me about it with a link to
+a place where it was linked to. Please do not send me "I'll link to you
+if you link to me" messages - I'm not interested in such conditional
+linking and would be more willing to consider linking to you after you
+unconditionally linked to me already. One should realise that even a one-sided
+link is beneficial for your pages, because they add to the page's value and
+experience.
+</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>
+<b>Send corrections</b> - if you detect any problems such as:
+</p>
+<ol>
+<li>
+Spelling errors.
+</li>
+<li>
+Grammatical or Syntactical errors.
+</li>
+<li>
+Bad phrasing.
+</li>
+<li>
+Broken hyperlinks.
+</li>
+<li>
+Invalid markup. (HTML/XHTML, CSS, JavaScript, etc.)
+</li>
+</ol>
+<p>
+Or any other problems, feel free to contact me about it, and report them.
+Note that due to my Israeli nature, some of my English pages may contain some
+Hebraisms and/or Israelisms, and I see them as features not problems.
+</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>
+<b>Suggest new content</b> - I'm always happy to hear suggestions for new
+content, like new links that you would like to see included, topic that
+lack proper coverage, etc. 
+</p>
+<p>
+If you want to send unified text patches make sure you do them against 
+<a href="<rellink host="t2" url="meta/site-source/" />">the Subversion 
+source of the site</a>.
+</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>
+<b>Send a "Thank You" email</b> - I'm always happy to receive emails 
+complimenting for the site or some resources thereof. At the moment, I'm not
+receiving too many, and so I can respond to most of them, so if you're polite
+and nice, expect a response.
+</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>
+<b>Donate some money</b> - lastly, you should consider
+<a href="../donate/">making a monetary PayPal donation or fullfilling part of
+my Amazon.com wishlist</a>. I won't hold it against you if you don't, but I
+would appreciate it if you do.
+</p>
+</li>
+</ol>
