    Default Donate Button - Anyone noticed it ?

    Hi

    In the PL menu there is now a 'Donate' button (in green). If you haven't noticed it why not take a look.

    It seems that PL is growing at a rapid rate and that Spec is facing increasing costs for server upgrades.

    I'm sure you'll agree with me when I say that a laser enthusiasts life would be a whole lot emptier without this great forum.

    So guys (and gals ), why not do your bit, get your wallet (or purse) out and show your support for Spec and Photonlexicon

    I noticed it and I agree with all you say my friend.
    Go click the button boys and girls - its not going in anyones pocket - but it will ensure our community remains here to share its wealth that is beyond money.

    How much do you need? That will determine how much I donate.

    I've been in the ISP biz for 12 years. There is no doubt that this site is very hungry for recourses!

    Feed it.

    James.

    PS. I have only done one site that might be anywhere near as complex and hungry as this one. I only did it for 4.5 months (and I got paid). This site has an ever expanding database behind it! It is supposed to become infinitely large! It also must be run on a system that is fast enough to get you want you want out of all that.

    Thanks for the years of community, knowledge and something fun to do everyday!

    My donation was the one from my partner's akrobiz.com email address. In case you hadn't noticed, I wouldn't have much to do, if not for the PL.

    Just made my donation. I don't think it matters how much he needs. He's paid for this site out of pocket for the past 2-3 years, maybe longer. And I can't imagine how many hours he's put into the thing. Thanks for the great site Spec!

    I suspect he needs all the money it costs.
    Just drop him what you can. If we all do that then things will ease off a bit and if you can donate more in the future then great as he says on the donate page if you can do it regularly that will help too.

    donated

    DEFINITELY worth every penny! i think we should all make it a point to try and help out each month. theres probably a good 50-75 active members at least. if we all donated even a buck each month, that would probably take a big burden off of spec.

    just a thought.
