Worth Every Penny!!!! I need my ESMB addiction. Let us know where to send money! Again and Again, Thank you for doing all this Emma!
Count me in!
Yah, payday is next week for both John and myself. Kinda skimpy week due to property taxes being due, but I will definitely contribute then. I'll see how much I can do.
I am truly into myself, yes. And I'm just as interested in other people. When I'm not thinking of one, I'm thinking of the other.
Yes, you can fly, but first you have to break out of that cocoon. You are capable of self rescue at all times. "Every blade of grass has its own special angel watching over it and whispering, 'grow...grow'." -The Talmud "I am still determined to be cheerful and happy, in whatever situation I may be, for I have learned from experience that the greater part of our happiness or misery depends upon our disposition, and not upon our circumstances." -Martha Washington
You shouldn’t feel embarrassed about this, most of us love the chance to give something back.
And, as Panda said, it is worth every cent. I mean, where else could you get hour after hour of such thrilling entertainment for a handful of cents a day? HH witticisms alone are worth more than the admission price!
If everyone paid at least $10, we would only need a couple of hundred to chip in. Surely everyone who hangs out here can afford that?

That is why the Internet is so important. It is the ultimate antidote to the poison of totalitarianism. -- Robert Vaughn Young
Ok, so I've heard back from the hosting company. Here is their reply to me:
They have a newer range of servers now, and a better one than we are on for the same price of $219 per month. The details are here:
I've decided to pay the $99 set up fee because I think it's worth going on to a faster server.
I have about USD $1250 left over from the legal donations & also what has been donated recently by ESMBers.
So the cost is $2595 - $1250 = $1345 (plus paypal fees 3.5%) totals $1392.
I'll set up a pledgie and put a button on the site.
One thing to remember with Pledgie - If you want to remain anonymous (i.e if you don't remain anonymous your paypal name will appear as a donor on the list) PLEASE remember to tick the box or change the appropriate details. It's been a year since I used Pledgie and it looks like they might have improved this part of the service. I'll add more about his when I've tested it.
Let me know if you run into any problems and thank you all for your amazing support.
Edit: In setting up the Pledgie I notice that they now take 3% (it used to be free). This adds an additional $40 so the total will be $1434.00
