    Forum Hosting Update

    Well, I've known this was going to happen soon and it finally did. Today we reached the 15GB disk space limit on our Gold level hosting account. That 15GB contains all the forum software files, database and user attachments such as uploaded photos and avatars, etc.

    To keep things going, I've upgraded our hosting package to the Platinum level which doubles our disk space to 30GB at an additional immediate expense of $103 and a new annual hosting expense of $499.50 which will be due on June 1st, 2021. There are no additional expenses anticipated until that time.

    It took us 10 years to use up the initial space so I'd anticipate no additional upgrades necessary for a very long time.

    So are there sufficient $$ in the donation pot currently to cover the $103?

    Yes, the donation pot is approximately $230.00 at the moment. However I elected to pay the $103 myself and save the donation funds for the next years expenses.

    Our host only advertises 3 levels, Pro, Gold and Platinum, so we're already at the top!

    Thank you, Alan!
    My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far today, I have finished two bags of M&Ms and a chocolate cake. I feel better already!
