  1. I am about to switch the hosting over to amazon web services in the next few days for some bandwidth breathing room.   Then I'll have to work with the forum software customer service to make the upgrades compatible with a new version of PHP so we can finally secure the website away from the bots that have been eating the bandwidth.  The current hosting company has been less than useful unfortunately.

  2. Bots are hitting the site and causing the issues.  I am working with tech support still to try and fix it.  I thought it was already resolved.  There is another issue with upgrading the forum software I need to take care of but it currently crashes the entire forum so I am unwilling to do so until I have ample time to devote to it.  I am hoping to have the bot issue resolved by the end of the week.

    Just a little update for you guys.  Bandwidth upgrade would only be a bandaid and not a full solution, so do not feel obligated to donate any more money.  And thanks for your donations so far that should cover the monthly losses for the remainder of the year.

  3. Thank you sir.  The forum software needs a update as well which also has a fee, so donations will go towards that if our license has expired. I will also explore another option.  Which is to let the forum software company host the site which could eliminate these type of problems and spam.  

  4. Hey guys a bot hit the site and I had tech support take care of it.  The donation amount is busted and always shows that amount.  Currently the ads don't cover the costs anymore.  It's close but not quite there.   So anything you donate will sit in the PayPal account to pay the bill.  I'm currently in the process of moving and other big life changes (Fiancee), which is why it took so long to take care of this.  Sorry for the delay.  


    I'll monitor the Bandwidth this month and see of a plan upgrade is necessary. 

    Thanks for your patience 

  5. Apparently my hosting company has a policy against having too many images on the web servers.  I will have to make some changes to the gallery, close it, or maybe switch hosting companies....  I had to delete a lot of images to get us under the threshold.  Sorry if you lost any images.

    I tried early Monday and it didn't direct you to PayPal. Just tried it again and it went thru.

    Thanks Bswor.

    You do enough already by taking care of the spammers.  You did not need to donate but it is appreciated and it will help pay the server rent which just quadrupled to get us where we needed to be.


    Thank you for all of your contributions!
