Hello my friends thought I would update you on a few things. The good news is that appears you guys really like me and my work. Enough so to keep this site running. I can even afford to feed those little fat kittens! You have no idea how much I hated having to do that last night. I have always been one to give things away and have even had to listen to people call me nuts for doing so. What can I say its just in my DNA to be that way. Having to do what I did last night is so opposite of my nature. I cant thank those enough that did step up to help. I am so touched you have no idea. I did send you thank you notes though they might have ended up in your spam mail, lol might want to check and see. I also got a couple kicked back to me with the mailer domain thing, so if you didnt get a thank you from me that is why. Let me know.
I would like to make a suggestion going forward to make this a lot easier for all of us. I do have a Patreon account. If everyone would just commit to $4.00 a month that would take a lot of pressure off and would even things out. Everyone can be a part of contributing to making this site strong and great. When you think about, thats really only a $1.00 a week for all this information, a safe place to hang your hat, share your thoughts and ideas, and it also keeps it ad free. Plus now we have a good deal more storage to work with. Considering what we got put up for just 1gb worth, imagine what we can do with 10gb now! Who knows whats going to happen with the sites like FB, Twitter etc. Q has hinted they may be taking a hit soon and we will need a place. Not to mention there is a chat room on this site that is rarely used. That is also a very nice feature for us to have especially if those other sites go offline for a bit.
Trust me I have no problem working, but my condition now has kind of taking a lot of possible positions away from me. I am able to do this though and luckily I love to do it. You should know by now Im usually around for you guys. Sometimes the day crew gets me hard, sometimes the night crew, but I always try to be here for you and also be on the look out for what I can find to share with you be it news or just trying to make things easier to understand with whats going on around us. So, by commiting to those few dollars a month you help me to help you on a full time basis. Lol of course if you want to give more or feel Im worth more then thats wonderful! I sure wont snub my nose at it. Or maybe your couple bucks extra will help out someone else that just cant afford it. Its kind of like how I tip good service. I do it not only for the good service, but to cover for those that may have stiffed the server.
The links to my PayPal and also my Patreon are the buttons below. Whichever you feel more comfortable with, its all up to you. I will appreciate it either way and let me just Thank you right now for your support. Dont forget I built this house for all of us, so by all means please use it. Post articles, if youre shy maybe just drop a comment here or there. There is no judging here. One thing I would ask though, if you do decide to add a article, dont just title it and drop the link. At least write a little something so people know what its about or what you think or feel about it. Doesnt have ot be a book in length, but it does help give the site a little more class and a stronger backbone.

Now that this is all out of the way, I want to discuss a couple changes I will be making going forward. I had myself a nice little fight with the Ning people this morning. Turns out the problem I was having posting the Q updates were not because of the fact that I had run out of memory, but that it was an enternal issue. Of course they doesnt come to light until After the upgrade. Go figure. So now Im in a waiting pattern for them to fix this, Meanwhile they said I should be able to do it this way so I will give it a shot. If it does indeed work I may start condensing some of the forums together to make things even easier to find. I know a lot of you arent even aware of half the things that are actually on the site! As always though I will keep you updated with whats going on and when the changes have taken effect.
Once again Thank you so much to those of you that pitched in to help.
The way I see it now, you all have sort of elected me and now I work for you!
So by all means let me know what I can do for you as far as what youd like to see or something you might like me to cover. Im open to all suggestions and Ill try my very best to make this house our home away from home. All comfy, safe, and warm :) Yig~
