I just renewed the webstie for Distantreplay.org and like everything else in this recession driven economy, the cost once again went up. For a 2 year renewal it is now close to $118, which is close to twice as much as what it cost when we started this whole thing about 7 or 8 years ago. I hate to do this, but I am including a donation page on the site in hopes of offsetting the costs. When I just re-upped my wife gave me one of those "you're paying what...for what" looks. I figure if we got $5 from our members we'd have more than enough to cover. If we got more I'd go in and add an extra year or two onto the renewal.
It pains me to ask for help, but with the rising costs to do this my hobby is now cutting into the family coiffeurs.
Here is the donation button via Paypal. It's simple to use. Even if you do not have Paypal it allows you to use a credit card to pay just like any other site.
Thanks for your continued support and interest in this hobby that we all love.
Here is a copy of the latest invoice that I paid to Godaddy (our hosting vendor).
