It's that time again...

Time to pass around the donation hat (a size 89.90$ hat, to be precise). OR SUFFER THE CONSEQUENCES! (The consequences being accessing Elowel via it's IP address,, instead of the domain name elowel.org). We have until 29 July.


Edit: Looks like we're going the paypal route (those of you in the Portland area can meet me in person, too). Send yo money to me and I promise not that much will go to hookers and blow. Balance so far: 37$

Since we have about 18 people who regularly use the site each would have to shell out $5. How long would this cover the domain name? A year?

For two years. Going down to one year puts it at 44.95$.

In part, it's that expensive because you're paying for domain registration and DNS hosting. You could eliminate the cost of the DNS hosting if you felt like self-hosting DNS, which isn't so hard but requires a certain amount of expertise and fortitude (or a pre-existing DNS server).

If you have trouble getting the money, even a couple dollars short, let me know.

There used to be a PayPal account for this, but I don't know who controls it. But I have a Paypal, so if people would feel not sketchy giving me Money, we can do it that way.

Or you can each snailnail me ~5$.
