Hi folks. Good to see you. I know I'v e been an absentee landlord here, but I do understand this is still a community that enjoys Tony and his show.

Once again, we're closing in on our Yearly Operating Cost call for donations. Every month we have hosting costs, but every year, we have to renew the license to use this message board software to get the latest and greatest security fixes, feature enhancements and such. Any help for this would be greatly appreciated.

Hopefully you haven't donated all of your money to Jerry Negrelli... :)

Once I find my wallet, I'll send something.

This may be more difficult than it sounds -- I haven't used it in more than a month because the only place I've gone in that time is physical therapy.

Thanks again folks for your generosity, it really is appreciated. I can't believe we're almost to our goal already. That's great, and keeps this place alive!

There is a new security update for Xenforo that I can upload soon. It'll happen this week and it'll probably take the site down for an hour or two. I'll keep you up to date as to its progress.

I'm also looking into restoring Tapatalk functionality. It looks like their act has finally gotten together so it's a viable option again.

@Bill Lehecka, has there been a shortfall for the year so far?
Some months have had the full donations (again, much appreciated), others haven't. It happens. If I don't meet the donations, I just fill in the gaps like I have.

The yearly maintenance goal WAS reached and is much appreciated. I just have to find time now to update the board. I'm currently helping Joy at two farmer's markets, so I don't have weekends anymore.

Did you have to make repairs to this site today to fix the errors everyone was encountering? Something that a software upgrade will fix permanently?

Today it was a server issue. Apparently when the server company fixed the initial error, they found something bigger which called for the entire server to be upgraded. It wasn't a software issue on my part.
