where did the money go and why dont we have to pay anymore?

someone please enlighten me. there was a time when everyone was asked to give money to save the board. apparently there was some hosting issues.

have the $$$ problems been addressed? where is it at now? where did everyones money go to? is this site now running cheaper?

just curious, is all.

Elvis made me whore myself out for the good of the site...
I hope you all appreciate my efforts.

On a more serious note- what did happen to the financial issue?

First off... I had posted about what the money was being spent on way long ago. But to revisit this... money was spent on (at the time) existing hosting costs to keep the site running while transitioning to new servers, dns and mail servers, etc. The money went very quickly (unfortunately) but covered the large lump of money that was needed at the time. Currently some hosting services ARE being donated, while others are being paid for, and some WERE being donated but are now being paid for. Since the initial donation drive, and once that money was spent for the transition, I have been paying for everything out of my own pocket - just like the good ol' days I do expect the sites costs to go up as we launch the new version of the site in the (hopefully) near future, but I have some ideas on how to cover that without whoring out every page with huge square ads like some other U2 sites are currently doing. *cough*

Well, I'm tired.. if you've got more questions please feel free to ask.

Look Elvis, while some people have no problem with stripping for money, I do and I'm not going to do it for this site. Got it?

On a side note, thanks for taking care of us!
