    Hi all, it is time for our fifth annual fundraising drive to cover the hosting costs You have all made this so easy in the past and I thank you tremendously for stepping up to keep the site running. I've listed the months below, along with a line to cover the annual domain name registration fee. I'm keeping the cost for a one month sponsorship the same at $14 despite hosting costs going up somewhat in the past year. Our host now charges extra for the older version of PHP our forum runs on, so I'll be looking to migrate the forum to a new version - hopefully on an free open source platform - to get the hosting costs back down. I used to build websites 12 years ago, so I'm sure I can figure this out, but if anyone has any suggestions for a new platform please send them my way!

    Here are the months for 2023-24, to sponsor a month just post what you want to cover in the comments and I'll add your name in. Once you claim a month I'll private message you to work out the payment details - either paper check or Venmo will work.
    And again, thank you for the support!

    Good to see the old regulars step up.
    Since I am providing diddly squat in the way of content*, gimme two months and the hosting fee.
    * And I would just be repeating myself if I did..

    Thank you so much @pettyfog ! And feel free to provide more than diddly squat, maybe piddly squat?? No one else can get me to say "Well, I hadn't thought of it that way" quite as much as you. I bestow you with February and March.

    Just April and May open now. Thanks all for the support of the site.
