Near future financial crap (AKA please donate)

Recommended Posts

OK, so I finally have a job lined up. Problem is, I do not start until January. My current job ends Dec. 15.

This means money will be very tight for me these next couple of months. Any donations now will be very much appreciated.

The new job won't pay as much as I could get elsewhere, but the benefits are awesome, including the amount of paid time off. They also tend to do well with raises.

Dreamhost charges a monthly VPS fee in addition to the 3-year hosting fee.

If I could get about $60 in donations, it should cover everything to the end of the year. Though if I could get even half of that, it would be a huge help.

I hate asking you guys for money, but keeping the site alive is becoming harder and harder on my current income, especially since there will be a period of up to 4 weeks where I will have almost no income.

Hopefully, this will be the last time I ask for donations. Once January comes around, I will be making significantly more money than I am now. I know what salary is being requested for me, but I do not know what will be approved.

Once I start making more money, I should be able to make some upgrades. I have a plan for the file downloads and an ip.chat license to replace the shoutbox, but I need money first.

Seems to be some issues with Paypal at the moment. I'll pop some coins into the box by tomorrow.

Thanks, guys. Especially you, User.

That's one less bill I have to worry about.

Got it to work. Matched Users contribution.

I owe this site. It's an honor to help keep it running.

Big thanks to whoever dumped the big money bucket on the SFO hosting account today.

On the bottom of every page there is a little button that shows a blue moon and "Hosting Donations Accepted" Click on that and follow the instructions. It's hard to miss, as it's right in the center.

Waiting on a bank transfer. I don't even know how much I even have :/

Don't worry, there is no reason to feel obligated. SFO is paid for for the next year or so.

Thanks again, guys.

If I may DZ, how much is the typical annual cost to run the server. For estimative purposes

It's cool. A chance to give back to the place that has given a lot to me :)

~$100 / Yr for the default hosting paid every three years, just paid back in September.

~$20 / Mo paid monthly for the VPS.

That does not include IPB licenses, which run ~$100/6 Mos. for all products we are using, or the game server, which is about $100 every three months.
