Well, I was right - we have a bill.

However, thanks to generous forum donors, we have enough in the kitty to pay for it.

Thanks to all that have contributed - especially those that stick a bit in each month.
If there are any that maybe haven't chipped in for a while and would like to help us replenish our funds for next time then please feel free to click the Ridersite Logo to donate --> Image

For any that are surprised that the link takes you to a Paypal Page that says: This is because Tim Rayner set up the account when he was running the forum. It's all fine - I have the "keys" to the account now.
As yet, the funds are still too small for me to bunk off to the Cayman Islands ....

Done, twice ! ( Greg donated on my behalf on the parts swap and I made a donation because, frankly I have been a slack fucker on keeping the coffers full )

I dribble my pennies in once a month now.

I've noticed - and it is much appreciated and makes a difference.

There should have been another deposit from some of my 'donated' parts recently too ...

Just had a notification from Paypal that my payment didn't go through this month. I know that this is because my card was compromised and cancelled - I've now updated Paypal with my new card but I'm not sure whether they'll put the missing payment through. I'll wait a bit and see what happens.

Thanks Bobby - your forum support is most appreciated.
I've just looked and can confirm your last donation that made it's way through was 30th December.
Many thanks for that and previous payments.

Just to let you all know, we've recently received the most recent bill for forum hosting and I was able to pay it from current funds. We still have some money in the pot - so that's good.

Many thanks (as always) to those that have chipped in - either regularly or through a more "freestyle" approach. Although contributions are voluntary, without them the forum would cease to exist - so from all who benefit from the forum to all who fund the forum ......
MANY THANKS
(and I realise that includes thanks from some people to themselves)

So why is it, everytime you post that all is sorted, I feel compelled to hit the 'donate' button?

Remember, when you are dead, you do not know you are dead. It is only painful for others.
The same applies when you are stupid.

It's an ongoing thing and we need the trickle in to keep pace with the trickle out (as I'm sure you understand)
Donations always welcome - Thanks
