    Looks like we are reaching the ceiling on the Monkey's web host plan. I've been contacted by the host and they are telling me gently that we are hogging all the resources on the shared server.

    The next step up is 3X what we pay now per month. Almost 4X.

    I think we'll just ban 1000 members instead and carry on like a couple yrs ago. Just kidding [beer] we love allyou new guys.

    I may be opening a donation window for a week in the near future.

    You know we will cover the costs M. Do what you need to and we'll make the payments.
    Might be time for another raffle!!! That was fun.

    We can always come up with something to donate for a raffle. It will probably generate more $ and is also more fun for the members. Just let us know when you are ready.

    just wondering,
    Who are you hosted with and what kinda numbers (bandwith/diskspace) are we looking at?
    Would changing hosts be a option?

    Melbo,
    I just donated, not much, but every little bit helps right?

    I also agree with doing a raffle.

    Could always cut back on some of the features too.... we don't really need all the bells/whistles.

    I would like to offer my dog for raffle: she is 12 year old, eats her own shit and throws it up on the carpet (she recycles), she is 95% deaf from duck hunting and very cute. She love children and has chronic halitosis.
