Thanks for resurrecting this, Alan. I was very surprised that no one responded to my first plea to help Vlad. As you mentioned, he’s a very knowledgeable, generous, and all-round nice guy (and also a moderator on this forum).
Vlad is in a bad situation and is desperate to save his magic library. The least we TMF members can do is to each contribute something, however small. It all adds up, and hopefully our efforts will help a fellow magician in need.
Please visit the gofundme page and contribute something.
