Is there a need to be paying $500/year? What are the bandwidth specs? Perhaps there are less expensive options.
One struggle, many fronts.

There are less expensive options, though none of them offer the hands on tech service that this one does. Essentially we have managed hosting without the 1000 dollars a year other places wanted and I can phone and  speak directly to the person running things.

Also many do not have cpanel control or unlimited databases.

currently we have a custom package, we have unlimited databases and are running 16 and have access to phpMyAdmin

We have a 100 GB bandwidth, we've used about 38 this month. We were running over till I gzipped the board and blogs.

Other places we tried did not offer tech support if you upgraded and of course since most upgrades offer increased security, we no longer qualified for tech support.

The servers here are constantly being checked and upgraded and it's a small Canadian company which also hosts such things as the Richmond Food Bank Society.

So ultimately while I could find cheaper it would be hard to find that fits so many parameters.

Aaaand, we're back. Goldie-fern here again. I hope you enjoyed that marathon of Deepak Chotra's six-hour 'Living Large off You Suckas'. *whispers* Dave, why the hell do we broadcast that fraud? *whispers*

I do this all the time. Say to myself: yes, that's a good cause, I'll support that. And then of course shit happens and I forget.

So, this is just a reminder to you forgetful types out there. If you can't send in the munnee at the moment, please let us (Debra) know when you can.

And again, if you can't, don't sweat it. We'll find a way.

You don't know which way to go
There's too many signs and arrows
You haven't laughed in a while
When you can't even fake a smile
When you feel ashamed...

Dave seems to have gone completely AWOL. Ok, Goldie here back from lunch. We've already heard from some who have contributed and are willing to kick in again. Do we need to hit those good people up yet? Or are there perhaps others who haven't been heard from?

Maybe some of our gone-but-not-forgotten members?

Now, for thank-you gifts, may I suggest you check this array of attractive merchandise out.
