Re: Contributing Membership "Pledge Drive"

Hi everyone,

I just wanted to post some additional information regarding this season's AikiWeb Contributing Members Pledge Drive.

Keen-eyed AikiWeb community members may have noticed that the server had some downtime about a week and a half ago. This was due to the server suffering some hardware problems which necessitated my driving to the local CompUSA for a new power supply. Because of this downtime, I decided to do something I had been meaning to do for some time -- invest in an additional external server to house back-ups in case of a catatrophic failure of the main AikiWeb server.

At this time, I want to turn toward the AikiWeb community for your support in defraying these direct costs of running the server.

I would like to see if we can reach a target of $500 by the time this pledge drive ends on June 16th. That amount would cover (barely) the recent hardware costs for the servers.

In addition to the Contributing Membership, I wanted to point out that AikiWeb does accept donations.

So, you have two options if you wish to help out.

1) Become a contributing member by going to the following URL:

http://www.aikiweb.com/membership/

2) Send in a donation for AikiWeb by going to the following URL:

http://www.aikiweb.com/store/donation.html

I'll keep everyone up-to-date as to how well this pledge drive is going.

In any case, I want to take this time to thank all of the members of the AikiWeb community for your support, participance, and enthusiasm over the years. Thank you, again, for your consideration.

Best,

-- Jun
