No offense taken and I know none was intended. I'm just saying, the wording on the offer is 'new server', and like I said they are itching to move us to more modern hardware, so they'd be disinclined to extend any special offers to us to keep using our old hardware.
We are very very close to the goal. Be patient - it will happen.
To all you good people who have stepped up to donate, BLESS YOU ALL, and THANK YOU! To the rest of you good people who have not yet donated; remember, WE NEED YOUR HELP. Every little bit helps, so if you can drop even a couple dollars in our collection hat you have our earnest gratitude.
Just to recap : Our hosting company would be happier if we migrated from this old server we are presently on to a newer server. Making this migration allows the hosting company to optimize use of the space available at the data center as the older server is bigger than the new ones. The old server is less efficient and harder to find parts to repair it should it fail, so the company wants to phase out that line of hardware in favor of the new stuff. Toward this end the hosting company is offering we last few hold-outs on the old hardware really good incentives to migrate to a new server... discounts! If we rally our funds (approx $600 - 650 is the overall goal) I can negotiate a deal with the hosting company that could bring our monthly costs below $30 (which would make continuing to operate the server much much easier on us all). It is a fair sum of money we are seeking - but we are ALMOST to the goal! The deadline (our renewal date) is coming up middle of November.
HELP US SHOULDER THE WHEEL. Donate what you can. Thanks in advance.
