    In my effort to keep everyone up-to-date on the status of the site and the server we are hosting on, I wanted to let you know exactly where we stand.

    As I had mentioned in a previous article, everything has been moved to the new server. On Tuesday, I turned off the old server, which was costing $100 per month. I have moved us to a cloud based server that has a variable monthly rate based on resources that are required. My original hope was for running the $40 per month plan, which was for 1 CPU, 512MB RAM, and 40GB drive. Unfortunately, the memory setting was way too low, so I had to upgrade it to 1GB of RAM, which is what brought it to the $50 I was reporting in my original messages.

    On the 1st, I was forced to upgrade from 1GB of RAM to 2GB of RAM, as the server performance was still too sluggish. This now brings the total cost of the server to $75 per month, which is still less than the $100 per month that I was paying on the old dedicated server.

    I do not anticipate any other changes to the server, as the memory is now more than sufficient (I'm running between 60%-80% usage) and I have more than enough harddrive space. Therefore, the $75 per month is what I will be paying.

    Thanks to the support of many of you here, as of today, the PayPal account that pays for the server is at $330. The charge for the server comes on the first of every month, so we are good for another four months (July, August, September, October). In September, another site that I host on the server will be paying their annual fee, which will carry the server an additional three months (November, December, January).

    So, I want to personally thank everyone who has been able to help, no matter how small it was. I am still looking for a job, and am hoping to have one soon. At least we can be secure knowing that the server is covered for a while longer at least. I am still accepting any donations or subscriptions you might be able to provide. Rest assured that everything that comes in to PayPal always goes back to the server and the maintenance of the site.

    Neva was genuinely surprised that the Jedi weren't in the business of funding aid missions. It seemed like they helped a lot of people, mitigated peace
