    This is our home-away-from-home.

    It’s survived 20 years because of good subject-matter, good membership, and good staff. It’s survived because of a good community.

            It’s unique.

                    . . . and it’s OURS.



    It’s ours because WE use it to share, because WE use it to help each-other, and because WE use it to relax.

            It’s ours because WE fund it. PERIOD. No adverts, no pop-ups, no control by Google, Facebook, Twitter or Amazon.

                    We are not beholden to ANYONE other than ourselves and our hosting service. And we want to keep it that way.



              Image


    NONE of us want this place to go away, it’s too important to lose, but it can’t survive on hard work & goodwill alone.

    3 years back, over a period of 3 months (April/May/June 2018), we had almost 100 people open up their hearts and wallets to keep us alive.

    But our hosting service “pot of gold” is now empty, and we need an injection of funds to carry us forward.

    Given the reduced activity compared to our peak years, Trev recently put in a HUGE amount of effort to research cheaper options & transfer all our history . . . the result being that it NOW costs around $70 per month to provide the platform & keep our domain name registered.

    Using that estimate, we are hoping to raise enough to fund the next 3-5 years, and it would be great if we could achieve that by the end of June.



              Image


    So whether you’ve been here a few months, a few years, or have been with us since the beginning, please, if you can, help keep the lights on & the fire burning.

    If you love this place – if you enjoy the calm, the escapism, the knowledge, the lunacy and the happiness it provides - please throw a few dollars in the direction of our little website. No donation is too small (or too large!) . . . EVERY contribution helps.

    Please donate whatever you can manage via our dedicated PayPal account here Image and if PayPal or Credit Card isn’t an option, please PM Trev here Image and he’ll figure something out with you.

    And thanks in advance . . . to all of us, FROM all of us . . . for however you choose to support.

I'm currently in school finishing my apprenticeship and earning less than half my usual wages. So I'm going to have to work the corner for a few hours but I'll be putting in just like I always have.
I love this place.

We’re 2 days into the funding drive, and thanks to the 1st SIXTEEN reprobates that stepped up to the plate, swung, and hit (is that right? – I don’t do baseball), we’re already (almost) at the $1,000 mark.


You guys RULE! :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow: (well - except for that “Trev” fella – he hardly ever does ANYTHING to keep this place going! :wink: )
