One of the really wonderful things about the site, and I wish this was a lesson i had learned in my real life -- and i beg all of you younger folk to absorb it, is that DC is "Built to live within its means".

That is -- the only fixed expense of DC is the website hosting costs -- and that is inevitably correlated with donations.. So that if donations dropped precipitously at some point, we wouldn't need the bandwidth and could shift to a cheaper host.  Outside of that, every donation is just a wonderful bonus, and the site can run forever.

Moving away from softlayer or theplanet to some social media hyped host is bad decision you'll ever make. Anyway congrats.

Thank you! Enjoy it while it lasts! Vacations make me giddy : )

I'll be all somber and dignified again by Monday!  :P

Let's hope the donatin' spirit lasts longer than I!
We're up to $6,781 which is a couple of $5 dollar donations, which I know is way more than Mouser dreamed of, but Friends, Loyalists, join the Frenzy, embrace the spirit, of the Hallowed Holy Temple of the Devs! (And Hangers on!)
