Just to bump and tell everyone to read the banner - it changed!

(I'm so used to it just sitting there quietly that I didn't realize the information had been updated and funds were needed again.)

It is a good idea to change it's color once the drive is over, that way it stands out when it's red the next time. I almost didn't notice either.

Better yet, now is the time to do the magic pin that pops the thread onto the top of every forum.

I'm conflicted... if the forum goes away, my work performance likely improves, but then I don't get to talk about video games and my life performance deteriorates. Also I don't learn about new games so my financial situation and marriage potentially improve. Hmmm...

Sounds like a small donation is in order as you can't clearly pick one outcome over the other...

I dumped my paypal account recently. Any chance you have a Venmo account I could send funds to?

If you need an inventive way, you can send it my way via Venmo, and I will send via Paypal. :)

But I can attest setting up a Venmo account was pretty easy and painless. :)

Oh, good call. I can do that if there isn't a venmo account available. Thanks!

My wife actually got both her undergraduate and master degrees from there!

I got two of mine from Kent Read, Kent Write, Kent State. Although I did go to Akron for a bit, and met my wife there, and was in a fraternity there as well. :)

Sorry folks I've been in work hell since labour day hit; combined with some extended family stuff it's been an absolute time suck. I'll break out the spreadsheet this afternoon or evening and get an update out to everyone. Worst case I don't renew for a year and pay the 10/11 months or whatever we have, we aren't in a dire spot at any rate.

We're short of our goal, but with your help we can still make it! With only two-and-a-half weeks to go, we're looking for your support to make this dream continue to be a reality. Even if you pledge just $5 a month, you could make it so instead of being in work hell since labour day, FishPants could instead be in work hell since labour day with an additional $5 a month in his pocket. Pledge today!
You got it!

Ok I just renewed it on my credit card, threw in $150 of my own money and we got another 12 months paid for. It came out to just over 2k CDN (After Paypals graft on donations + taking foreign currency conversion the transfer to my bank is around $1857 something.

We are good for a year, and please don't set recurring donations -- we will pick this up again next year, and maybe I do need to look into Venmo if it's better for the graft. Paypal takes more than I'd like to see both coming in and going out, I feel like we are using a payday loans provider or something.

I remember you mentioning that so I added some additional this time to offset the 'graft'.

If you decide on a different preference, make sure to give me time to learn it. Paypal is easy for me and it goes to my plastic which is the most secure for me and also the easiest. But that means both paypal and my CC company are going to want a piece of the pie before it ever gets to you. It's easy for me but I'd prefer more of my money goes in to OO's pocket if that avenue is readily available.

I'd offer to help you but accounting beyond personal accounting is largely voodoo to me.
