Ok, so here we go... As the regular visitors to the site have probably noticed, there have been quite a few struggles with availability and speed lately. I've been working to resolve the issues, but it looks like it is now time for a different approach and I am considering purchasing some upgrades. If purchased, you should immediately notice increased speeds and extremely little (if any) downtime. Now, comes the sob story. As most of you know, this is a personal site that I run, and although the banner ads help offset some of the cost, they don't cover everything. So, I'd like to ask for donations for the upgrade from anyone who would be interested and willing to chip in on the cause. As the site grows, I believe the advertising will offset more and more of the cost, but it will be quite some time before a break-even point is reached (assuming that point does arrive). If you would like to help, I have created a pay pal account for donations. You will find a Pay Pal Donate button down at the bottom of the page. Thanks for your support!
