    I've whined elsewhere re: how much this darn server costs, but... wht to ell! ey!

    If I can get/keep the ad clicks paying for about half the server cost, pensioner/social security can eek a hundred bux a month or so to keep er afloat!

    Unpublicized fact:

    We, (the aafo server… me) have hosted several pretty important websites over the years. For the most part, it's just been gratis. The server costs me the same, no matter how many websites are on it. Most servers in the class that I've leased for this website for many years, are built to handle MANY active websites. The bad option is called "shared hosting".. This is where most of the world's websites live, it's cheap, reliable for a lot of cases, but totally does not work for a place like this that can have momentary visitation rates in the.... many thousands and more. When our lottery winning pylon 4 bus was rolling in after the 2011 disaster, cell phone traffic was hopeless, we were held in place, not knowing what happened, I was able to access the internet via the overloaded cell voice network, hooked into the message board and learned what had happened.

    Anyway.. we currently host the Heritage Trophy website, as we have since the very beginning of the program. We host a tribute to Lefty Gardner for his family, Bob Hannah has had some of his websites for years.

    I was going to dump the server, dump the unpaid websites and go to shared hosting.. Darn it, I just paid off my car, though not as much as the monthly server costs, does give me a bit of room to breathe!

    This topic has opened into an amazing place! I may need to dig in and separate some of the topic branches into separate threads.

    I know it's the moderators and my job to deal with complex growing threads like this one but I'd love to see some suggestions from the sidelines!

    On the one hand, this separate thread is already popular and well visited, on the other, there are several sub topics buried within the thread title that do not have anything to do with the original posted topic..

    Obviously, some really cool side topics have surfaced within this thread.. If you were in charge, would you

    2015 My first time to Reno and the first year with that wrap. Looks like we are installing the 360 Camera mount. We mounted it to the ADI tank using suction cups and a bunch of zip ties.

    (As an aside, personally I kinda like it when the conversation continues and goes off topic. That's how face to face conversations work, and I think it limits things when we force people talk about one topic. Sure you can always just create a new topic, but the discussion seems to lose momentum for lack of a better word.)

    I had that pic of Miss Merced as my desktop for years. I agree, I wish he would post again.
