Site Upgrade - Please Read

Post by penrod » Fri Jan 25, 2019 9:43 am

Hello all!

The site has been up since 2003. So, we're talking about 16 years! Hard to believe that this was all before Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Perry and I need to do some pretty drastic upgrades to make sure the site keeps running another 16 years!

We've got to get the site upgraded and neither of us are capable of doing this process. So, we've got to outsource it.

It's going to cost us $500 for the developer to make it happen. We've got $120 set aside in the donation account. So, that leaves us needing $380 to get the upgrade done.

If you'd like to contribute towards this amount, please use the link on the left side of the portal. For those of you that have already donated, thank you!

Whatever we do not cover by donations will be covered by Perry and I.

We'll keep everyone in the loop of what to expect as we upgrade.

Thanks again everyone!
Ex-DS1(SW) John W. Penrod

I'll add another $20 to the kitty. This site is worth it.

Also done!!! John are the hooks and handles available for a mobile version. This site is very difficult to operate on a phone. I've been looking for a first mobile project. Just thinking.
