    Good morning Paul,

    So there is no confusion, purchase the box at the advertised price and I will donate the $50.00. If he already donated $25.00 then yes I will take $25.00 off the price and donate another $25.00 in his name. Does this make dollars & sense? Glad to see the site back up and I like the changes, thanks for all you do...

    Question To fee or not to fee,,, that is the question

    Paul,
    Happy to hear things are comming along Will we have better luck trying to upload pics with these new upgrades? I know for me, the old site was a real pain in the a## lol
    I still think you should think about charging a small subscription fee at some point, to help cover some of the cost . I really think you,ll find that not many of our true members would have a problem with that at all. Heck, we all know it cost money to keep a great play ground like this going, and you see what most of the people who have already donated said? Like me, they feel there donations are well worth it if it helps to keep owh alive and well. If it means the difference of keeping our family as is, or worse, having to shut down, I think very few of our members would have a problem with that. And the ones that do, shouldnt be here anyway. This is 2010 !! everything cost money.

    Id like to hear from other members on how they feel

    Thank you!!!

    I wanted to give a HUGE thanks for all the faithful OWH Slot Car Talk fellow slot car racing friends who have jumped in and made generous donations of their hard earned $ to support the repairs, upgrades, license renewal, and server costs.

    First and foremost, a HUMONGOUS thanks to Mike Mazur, who has lent his considerable expertise, time, and efforts to get this done. I was absolutely lost until Mike once again bailed me out.

    And I am overwhelmed with gratitude for the kind and unselfish donations that have enabled me to cover the costs involved in keeping these forums online. Thanks to these donations, towards the following:

    • Corrupt Data Base Repaired (numerous times by Mike M)
    • DNS problem fixed (again by Mike M)
    • Forum software license purchased
    • Forum software upgraded (upgraded in two complete stages, to bring to latest version)
    • Forum layout fixed, updated, and improved (ongoing)
    • Banner Ad program repaired, moved, & updated
    • Content Management System - that will add features & formatting to entire site (coming soon)
    • Moved entire web site to new server with latest operating system
    • Increased Hard Drive space
    • Monthly server hosting (paid current and ahead!)

    Future plans include:

    • Implementation of CMS system features
    • Resurrect old Photo Galleries, move, & update on new server
    • Future forum and other program licenses & updates
    • "Almost Live" and "Live" race event coverage

    No thanks necessary Paul. We appreciate everything you do for the sport.

    For me....no public list of donor names is necessary either. I didn't donate for the glory just for the cause.

    Im sure that most of the members on here feel the same way !! OWH is a huge part of the hartbeat for slot racing. I cant speek for everyone, but I know people like me would be lost without it. It would be like loosing a family member !! And now, thanks to our members generous donations, we got a much needed face lift !! Remember,, we are a family and family sticks together no matter what !!

    Cool Giving Money to Paul....

    ....for web site maintenance is like giving cash to a drug addict for coffee. Sure he makes some minor payments to his web site, otherwise his supply of cash dries up. I'm afraid that if I donate to OWH Paul may just blow it on things like food, or rent, or even worse slot car parts! Now, if there were some way to pay for the web site directly...well, I MIGHT be tempted to pony up. Until then it's a free ride for me baby!!

    "OWH Slot Car Talk - It's like a drug, man..."

    You've discovered my addiction. I live and breath slot cars, and Slot Car Talk. Not only have I gotten my slot car fix upgraded to the latest version, but I also have a laptop with WiFi, so I can even feed my addiction while eating, going for coffee, at the track, on the road, or yes... even when I go to the bathroom.

    And Rock, if you actually made it out of your basement to a race once in a while, you too could borrow one of my cars if you wanted to jump in on the action, while I'm busy running the races.

    Food? Rent? Slot Car Parts? Who needs any of that, when I have a web site to feed my every need?

    For I am a slot car addict.

    Donations can be submitted directly to the Old Weird Herald Slot Car Talk Addiction Foundation.

    (fortunately, however, I am not alone)

    P.S.
    Hey Rockinator! Hope to see you at a race again sometime soon! Check out the new raceway in Edgewood!
