Board Fundraiser

It’s that time again: fundraising time.

Last year, shortly after we moved to this site, we quickly raised $355 to cover 6 months of hosting on our fabulous server. Now the server is even more fabulous (with a bit of a security upgrade, thanks to the NSA wink.gif and we figure another $350 or so for the next six months would be a great way to support the site and help our very cool host cover some of her costs in providing this service (thanks, Sparks!).

Board Down

Due to unforseen circumstances, the board and IRC chat will be down for an indefinite period while it’s given a clean reinstall. We hope the downtime will be brief, although the timing with this weekend (busy for the both of us) is not ideal. We’ll do our best to get the board up swiftly, with the help of our siteadmin.

Until then, our apologies for the downtime. If you feel like socializing with fellow boarders in the meantime, consider visiting the Chat Board.
