    Well, Xen did want to cancel some of our philanthropic pursuits. Maybe we can juggle some things.

    Keeping a site like this going is a constant cost. Plus when you have your own servers, its not just constant upgrade for software cost its maintenance on equipment, cost of sending it all over the global net and even electricity!!!
    Plus, time...it cost time, believe me. All thats involved in keeping this place on the network, is a time eater!!! Put it all together and Mol and Gebs are definitely either nuts or some really awesome people!

    So it doesn't work in such away were it cost this much the end. There is always cost ever minute of the day.

    And to sum it all up, this is why I decided to not do what Mol and Gebs are doing! I wanted a real forum but dam just a cheap one thats only 150 year for host service and a few frills...to much work! I watched my son also start up a web service with his own servers and everything, and man the freaken cost, time and headaches....it takes real dedication.
    Just interested in the numbers involved. Perfectly worthy cause that I would throw money at if I had it to spare at the moment.

    I can't do that to little Fredrick! But those kidney patients may need to fend for themselves for a while... Much less of an issue in a country where they're guaranteed medical care and every one is insured. :P

    Not sure being as I'm not mol but its not cheap. vBulletin is nice but it is expensive. The upgrade license is $175, a new license is $195. That doesn't even include the server bill.

    Had I found this site a month ago I could have bought you the license, but I'm broke as heck now.

    I just found a new job, so depending on my first check I will try to toss some your way (I'd have to figure out paypal as well xD). I hope that one way or another there is enough to keep this place going, it is wonderful.

    I did a quick calculation for my tax returns the other month: we put in about $1200 a year for philantropic purposes. I'm going to cut down on that because we need the money for our children, and we will then have something left to inject into MW.

    I'd like to help but right now anything extra we had has gone into helping my town after the tornado came through last Saturday.
