    Hey there,

    I've always paid the fees for this site myself, but got an email today from Hostgator asking for $178.20 US to host the site for the next three years.

    Now I am saving at the moment ... I am happy to pay the amount, but just in case anyone can help, I've set up a Paypal donation thing that if anyone could spare even a couple of dollars, would be awesome.

    Thanks, and I'll keep progress updated so people know when to stop paying, should we hit the target.

    I'm going to help chip in. The place is getting busier, even a couple of dollars can really help us stay alive.

    We cant be relying on James all the time.

    If anyone else can donate that would be great!

    :love:

    No worries James. Always provided a great service for us.

    $180, if all the regulars chipped in it'd only be a few bucks each. Or as the life insurance ads say, "The price of a cup of coffee".

    We could have a little meter thing on the side of the page :lol:

    I should have added that anyone who donates also helps to stop us from needing any lame ads on here to keep the place going. :)
