Thank you for all your donations. :clap:

I am humbled by your generosity. :oops:

We've got the server rent, domain name, and dedicated IP fees covered for another year. :boogie:

I'll leave the kitty open for a few more days for any stragglers.

Again, thank you to all who make this place what it is and pitch in to keep it running! :bow: :bow: :bow:
