Premium membership costs have been lowered in order to help with funding a new server. Most of you have noted a streak of poor performance over the past few months if not the entire year.

1yr membership is now $15 down from$25, 6yr is adjusted accordingly with the 6th year free.

Damn, I spent all that time (2-3 minutes) signing up for paypal, just to find out I could have used my credit card directly. Ohh well

edit... Wow that was quick! Already yellow

Darn, I renewed last month! I knew I should have waited for the property values to decline. :rofl: Yes, Zz, that happened to me too when I renewed. It was quite startling!

Greg, you've said you'd give us an update on just what the problems have been --- looks like you've decided it's hardware, not software. So just what has gone haywire?

Correct, we've tried optimizing and configuring everything, but nothing has helped. We need more power. The new dual Opteron 248 machine I just picked up will do just that

What exactly did you mean by 'using your credit card directly'? Just curious.

He means, to pay a PayPal account you don't need to be signed up with Paypal. You can just as easily use your credit card as you would on any online shopping site.

Today I realized that my balance on my checking account is 30 cents. I uhh, don't really want to have any overdraft fees, so I will be making a deposit at my bank tomorrow. When I get home from school, I'll make sure to use my visa check card to change my name to yell, uhh, I mean to make a contribution and help PF

About time, you little bastard. After all these years of supporting you, your mother and I have just about had... Oh, never mind... wrong kid...

To those who are wondering: The subscriptions are sequential, so if your subscription is still active, re-upping will start your new year only when the current one runs out. \$15 is a good deal for this service and it would be good if Greg could get help from as many members as possible.

Well, in that case I'll shoot for the 6-year deal. Gotta wait until Monday though, because I can't deposit my paycheque until then.

With my lifestyle, the 6-year one is optimistic. :tongue:

100-year... Wasn't there a lifetime subscription at one point?

17. Oct 21, 2006

Danger

Yeah, Ivan would be better off going for the lifetime one. His 100 is probably close to expiring now.
