I hate begging for money, but I am tapped out and our upgrade fund is just $250 short of what we need to upgrade the site and fix a pile of problems.

We desperately need to update our server software to fix the problems that we have been having with crashing, database corruption, and various other unpleasant errors. Doing this also requires updating all the apps that allow this site to function.

Currently, our functionality is being held together with bandaids and spit. The evolution of this website over the past decade has left artifacts of old technology and garbage in our database. Our interfaces are outdated. Our security is less than great. Our mobile site kind of sucks. We need to do a major house cleaning.

If you enjoy this site and being part of this community, please help by clicking the yellow donate button at the bottom of the page.

A huge thank you to those of you who have contributed over the past few months, and those of you who will.

Done diddley-done, and well worth it for the content I've enjoyed reading let alone the money I've saved from not making bad purchases fueled by poor hype. Or watching terrible movies that I would later regret (thanks Barney!)

Thank you so much!!!!!

Your generosity allowed me to take the first baby step it this project. It's probably barely noticeable to you all, but we are now running slightly more efficiently.

I hear and believe you! This is my day job - justifying to our business why we need to spend money on keeping our systems running better and more efficiently, when what they want is more bells and whistles.
