I was being lazy for a few days there, but I sent in my rent a few minutes ago.

I've been putting back $5/month for a few years now for the annual OO fund, but I think I'm going to double that. $10/month is still less than a streaming service, and OO is far more important to me than those are.

I have donated! I want a plaque in General Gaming that reads "Hepcat: A Golden God".
He won. Period.

You can have a brick outside the OO HQ (IE - somewhere near Fishpants' house.) It won't actually say anything on it, but it is your brick.

Looking like we need a “whale” to hit the target on this. Who’s the resident whale again?

I wouldn't call myself a whale, but I will admit I have never helped out the site before. I just sent something to help close that gap.

I'll keep an eye, if we need to throw some more moola in, I will later in May.

+1 though I can't break the bank top put us over the top. Money got unexpectedly very tight after I got hit.

I've got >$9.000 in accounts receivable and $200 on hand. Those numbers will reverse in a couple of weeks. I figure I owe 2 cents a post because every post is my 2 cents worth.

I'm watching the gap close slowly, I'll contribute again if needed next month.

We are pretty close to target, sorry I haven't updated it in a week or so - life has been hectic to say the least.

Minor request, if possible.

Now that we're done with the Octopus Overlords annual pledge drive, can we remove the banner? I use a dark theme because I find pure white on a monitor to be fairly painful - it's essentially staring into a light bulb for me. The forum themes don't apply to the banner, so now every page is nice and dark - except for a bright, bright strip across it.

Thanks!

I don't mind it being there, I just wish it would match the themes.
