Website was down....

I'm sorry for the inconvenient about having the website down for the last two days.

We did'nt renewed our hosting fee and domain name registration on time.

I found a way to did it with help from Dave at ewillys.

I will change the donation to my name since i paid the fee. It was 83.40$ US.

Does anyone of you got news from Bill?

Ryan will try to reach him by phone but we will appreciate to know it just in case of something bad happen to him.

Ok, i changed the donation features.

Again limit your donation to a maximum of 5$.
Some of you are too generous...

We got news from Bill via the 2A forum members jpet.

From the 2A forum:
"Bill is doing fine. He's off the road and taking a break from jeeps.

This is his new line of work:

-http://www.mohawkvalleymodelrailroad.com/

He's is in the staff picture. Far right."

Look like he is going well.

I'm happy.

Hi,

A lot of you are sending me too much money to cover the fee. I don't know what to do. I reimbursed some of you but i just figure out that i'm loosing money due to the exchange rate fee PayPal is using. My account is set up in CAN $.

The site should be own by the members. Everyone should participated and not some of us at different level.

I want to know what we should do.

I disabled the donation feature for now.

I think that is what Bill would do - just cut off donations when he got enough $ donated.  Personally, I have no problem with you keeping a reserve so that you can renew again when the time comes.  One way to avert the down-time like we had a couple of weeks ago.

Thanks very much for taking care of this Pascal. I was traveling and missed most of the action. I've got no problem with you keeping some money in "reserve" for emergencies.

I too wouldn't mind seeing a healthy reserve kept in place to cover the costs of keeping this site going.

I agree with the others.  Or just call the extra a bonus for all the efforts you do behind the scenes.  I know we all appreciate the work you Admins do for the site.

I will update the sponsor member status later this weekend. I have enough money to pay one year and a half in advance. I will check with the hosting provider to renew it for more then 1 year at the time, it will cost less. Unless if we are not satisfied right now with them but i have nothing to complain about.

OK I added 2015 Sponsor member to all members who donated. I hope I didn't forget someone, if yes then tell me and forgive me.

I still trying to figure out how to put in in order like 2013,2014,2015,multiple sponsor....
