A few people have emailed me asking if they can still donate.

The answer is yes, it will go to the cost of monthly hosting service, which by the way will actually come down by around 1/3 than what I am paying now.

You can go here to do so.

Thanks everyone.

My eyes are now a little wider after receiving numerous emails, many of them stating KK/A2Y are the first stop for them every day. 

They mentioned they look at KK as the place to get their hockey fix which means a lot to me.

This is proof that sometimes the good guys actually do win. Congrats to you, Paul. And a hearty thank you to all who were able to contribute far more than I was. Well done, everyone.

Thanks everyone but this was more about you than me.

All I did was keeping up with sending thanks to each donator.

Remember the times when I wrote when comments would get out of hand and I would write the lurkers don’t like reading that stuff.  Well those lurkers came through with donations.

Ilove… and future donations will go to monthly hosting fees and plugins, heck I would even name one of the plugins after you.

Right on Paul! Congratulations! And your lowered monthly server cost going down by a third is the cherry on top! That’s great news!
Sometimes things happen for a good reason. Maybe that hacker did you a favor in the long run.

Be well all.

To the person who donated through Zelle this morning, thanks for the generous donation.

I don’t receive email addressed through Zelle, so thank you from here.
