In a little under three weeks, we have to pay for our hosting again. We'll be staying with the rather wondeful Prime Hosting (I think we're all agreed it's miles ahead of the last host) and it's going to cost at least £60. They have cheaper packages but given our disk and bandwidth requirements that's the one we need. The dream situation would be the £100 package but that's a lot of money.

Now, the other admins and I are no doubt prepared to meet this cost but if you guys are willing to put up some cash towards this place I'll be forever indebted to you.

I think the easiest way to do this is via paypal. So head here - https://www.paypal.com/

My e-mail address is miss.marple@dial.pipex.com

You don't have to go mad with the amount and don't feel like you have to give something if you can't afford to.

Cheers!

Incidentally, if anyone is looking for hosting and wants to help out as well then if you use the link below and choose Prime Hosting (which you should!) then I'll earn a bit of cash as well, which will go to the site.

Quality Webhosting!

I'd just like to say a big thank you to everyone who has put some cash towards this place. If anyone else would care to donate something then that would be fab!

Okay, thanks to everyone who donated. I've contacted the hosting person and we should get the new package sometime soon. Thanks to your donations we've been able to get the best package, which will hopefully mean we can do some more funky stuff.

It's getting towards that time of the year again guys. The paypal link is in the first post, if anyone feels nice enough to put some money towards the hosting.

Sorry I can't repeat the donations of last years but we've just had to pay for EoE hosting and I am pretty short on cash generally.

I'm currently sucking my savings accounts dry, as I have to fly home at the weekend.  :(  I can send you some money a bit later though - when I have some, ( in a month or so).

Well, y'all may have noticed that the meter ran out of money again last night. As Dave presumably has other things on his mind, I've taken up the mantle of paying then prodding you all for money.

I don't mind paying as much as needs be to keep the site running, but if anyone would like to help support the upkeep it would be tremendously appreciated. The PayPal link is up top; my email address is joranj@gmail.com.
