Just wanted give an update:

We've received a grand total of right at $300 (minus a couple from paypal fees).

We're currently on a one-year hosting deal with asmallorange.com that costs $110 per year.

Our vB license is currently an annual lease license that costs $85 and must be renewed each year. We can upgrade to a full license (never expires) for an additional $85 if we do it within the next 59 days.

We only need $80 more or so to do this. You can donate using the link at the top of the forum.

Any money left over after upgrading our license will be placed in a paypal money market status with an interest of ~5% and saved for next year, because we'll need at least $110 to continue the same level of hosting every 12 months.

Is there any way I can get half my donation at IIDB transferred here? Oh, and put Donor tag next to my name.

Thanks.

Matt
18 May 07, 01:59:26 PM
No. As for donor tags, that might come once this place is all settled and all. Who knows.

I will donate some even if I don't turn up often. Seeing PM suspended today pissed me off...

I was kidding. We don't need no stinkin donor tags.

I haven't used PayPal in so long I can't remember my password. I'll donate as soon as I can find where I saved it.

The wife'll know.

I think I may have screwed that up. It said I was donating to here but then after I confirmed it said it was shipping it to my old address. Luckily my old address is still a house my family owns so if I get something from paypal there I'll have to try again.

Matt

Well, I got both your donations. I'm not shipping anything anywhere so shipping address is useless.

Cheers.

I'll figure out how paypal works and donate something if you tell me who you are on IIDB. I hate not knowing things.

WTF how DARE you not know who I am? If you can't fig-- oh wait, did you mean Matt?

I don't know who you are either, but I like your attitude. I want to know who both of you are.

I don't know who you are either, but I like your attitude. I want to know who both of you are.

It says who I am in my custom title. I'm a fucking troll.

No wait, I'm a well-known atheist activist and leader in the secular movement, defending the Jeffersonian Wall of separation between church and state, building the freethought community; promoting atheism, naturalism, humanism, and secularism with my events and writings, and I'm trolling here, pretending to be a laid-back fun-loving chick while instead I'm gathering information about the online atheist community and reporting to my fellow freethought leaders about the goings-on in the various message boards catering to nontheists.

Or, I'm a fucking troll.

You know, or both. Why choose just one when I can have it all? God, I love being bisexual.

Christina
18 May 07, 06:33:32 PM
Yaaaay someone to talk activism with :)

I feel so stupid now. That was pretty damn obvious, huh?

Christina
18 May 07, 06:35:22 PM
You don't even fucking know who you are!

I do too. Most days, anyway. I'm starting to answer when people talk to my coworker Christine, though.

ok...i just sent you 20 bucks.

now, don't go threatening me with expulsion like they have been doing at IIDB!!:)

Shut up and leave me alone. I'm tired. I know that who he is was obvious too, but ...just shut up.

D'oh! Embarrassing. I knew it was one of those two... guess I chose wrong.

Matt
18 May 07, 08:19:46 PM
Holy crap, guys. Ya'll have gone insane with the donations while I was out for a bit.

Let's just say we have enough for upgrading to a full vB license and have made a large dent at NEXT YEAR's hosting. I'll grow it with interest for next year and/or whenever we need to upgrade in the future.

Okay. I upgraded and we now own a full vB license for ever and ever until God sends us all to hell.

I actually over drafted my account when I donated to this place (this with a combo of other things).

Thats how fucking cool this place is!

Just like to point out that:
post tenebras lux is too cheap to donate at this time.needs to be changed to:
PayPal is fucked up and refuses to accept payments from post tenebras lux.

OK, fixed it by lying my tits off on a fucking financial form FFS!!. Gee, thanks PayPal, I'm so glad I'm boycotting you.

Well as the Head Honcho around here (no, I'm not forgetting Spinoza, don't negrep me for that) he's going to need more money for his meals and cabernet sauvignon isn't he. That's bound to lead to some expansion.

We'll never compete with Osteen that way. Matt needs to let us know when the box is full, so we can donate even more to buy a new box.
