Our website hosting bill is up for renewal next month, and once again we are not at the funding level to proceed with our virtual private server hosting costs. In the past, through donations and decal sales have been able to fully fund the site every year. However, it does take a little effort on the part of the members.

If we cannot raise the funds needed, we do have the ability to bump back to a lower service level of hosting in order to bring the hosting charges down. However some of you will remember that a couple of years back we had issues with server uptime. Those server uptime issues drove us to buy into the increased hosting cost of a VPS. Since the time that we upgraded our hosting capabilities, we have had very decent uptime with the site (with only two or three days or so of downtime this past year). I don't want to go back to a shared server, and I imagine those of you that remember the issues that we battled with feel the same way.

We've got some good stuff planned for this year. Mason and I are working to roll out the new wordpress side of the site (the articles) this year (which was possible due to member donations). This expansion will help align the whole ORTB site to make it easier to obtain information from the articles, and make it easier to cross over between the two sides of the site.

So as active members of the site, I'm asking for your help to fund our continued high-grade hosting. If you are able to donate a few bucks and think that the site is worth supporting, please follow the link below to our paypal donation page.



Or if you would prefer, purchase some decals, whose profits 100% go towards paying for hosting and supporting the site.

Your help and support is much appreciated by the whole ORTB team - and especially by me.

Thank you all for your generous donations to the site! All donations are used directly to fund the site, either through upgrades, hosting charges, domain fees, or buying more decals.

To those that placed orders for decals, I will get them in the mail this coming week.

Cheers!
