No new car for Shannon

Not only that, but it's looking like I'm going to have to sell some of my current cars to keep all this alive. On Wednesday my credit card processor stopped dealing with me (and a lot of other sites). That means no income for the site from memberships AT ALL, and they also seized as much as $50,000 in monies owed. I might get this money back, but it could be as long as six months and by then it will be too late. It was bad enough a couple months ago when it just looked like this happened… Now it really has…

This puts BME, IAM, and ModCon at serious risk. While BMEshop is doing well, it doesn't come close to being able to pay for the bandwidth of the sites. Any donations by PayPal to would be greatly appreciated. BME costs approximately $5000 a month to host; there are 6000+ members just on IAM. Even if everyone only throws in a few dollars it would go a long way.

I'm having to make some very unpleasant decisions which involve (as I said) selling some things very dear to me to pay for it, offering part ownership of the site to a third party, etc. Nice of all this to happen right as I'm leaving on vacation. Ha, ha, universe. Very funny.

To top it all off, my provider has just had a major hardware failure totally screwing things up there… Which isn't strictly speaking my problem, but it does cascade down.

Well, the good news is that I got tattooed today.

Oh, and I know that the first thing that'll happen will be a pile of “Support BME” banners all over this site. While I apprecaite it emotionally, it's not what will save the site.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
