    Well, the site has been running on the same SW that Stokke left us with when he jumped back into upgrade. I have not maintained the license so it is quite out of date. We can safely assume that the site is hacked and all data has been exflitrated to Russia and China.

    I have been supporting the ~$100/year server and IP costs, no big there for me. Buy me a beer some time (or three if you want to get a good laugh).

    But if we want to keep the security up, we should upgrade to latest software version for $140.

    Given that hacking can also leave Trojans and other nasty-ware on the server, I'm thinking we need to fork out and patch to the latest.

    Looking for a few $$ from the main users to help defray the costs.

    Comments?

    Once we are aligned, I'll publish paypal address.

    I'm in but like Guv always says, should we just move to FB? I mean at this point this site seems barely used - which is sad.

    So just make sure you keep your antivirus up to date and I'll let it roll on........

    If we base payments on number of posts, "T" is on the hook for about $135 out of the $140

    I’m fairly new and don’t no anything about websites but I think if we made a private group on FB there would be more convo. Just seems like more are on there regularly. Guess we couldn’t have the individual forums but for some of us scrolling is just something we do.
