Appreciate the compliments guys. I don't know how much we have left, since Top is getting all the checks, but if he sees this, I'm sure he'll post an update. The new upgrade was about $500.00 total so if we can at least cover that, it would be great.

Thanks again guys!

Money on the way. Thanks for such a great site. I think it is a small price to pay for all the knowledge shared here.

Thanks again!

Paypal finally got my money, so I sent it today.

This 3-5 business days is a joke.
Money disapeared from my bank account the day I did the transfer, last week.
Paypal finally said they got it today, them electrons sure move slow.
It would have been quicker to mail a check.

Hope it helps.

Right now there is about 800 dollars in the account. We've had a total of about 1300 in donations which is great. I used 500 to buy the new forum and photo software, and will use more to buy the new classifieds and product review software. I may put new memory in the server as well, and then the rest can go toward the hosting bill.

At this time, we've rethought our need for a new server because after switching from YaBB to Vbulletin on the forums, our server usage went down 90%. YaBB was literally killing my server. Once we made the change, the speed improved so dramatically that we decided to use the money for upgrades and general monthly costs for now.

We still are going to need a new server in the next 12-24 months, but it's not nearly as grave as when we were using YaBB.

I think we're over 1000 now in the donation account. When Top sees this, I'm sure he'll update us. Keep 'em coming guys, and we can add new stuff!
