I shall have to take some sort of record of everything you all give to me, to ensure the money goes to the right place (ie, the forums, and not the bar :P). Anyway, as mentioned before, any donations are much appreciated. Cheers, guys. :)

Heh, thanks to you both. Your physical cash paid for my dinner and then some drinks afterwards, but I will write down your donation in the appropriate column in my accounts, so they will go towards hosting costs. ;)

Also with all this credit crunch you better not be using our money for your weekly shopping bills or electric :D

I live in St Andrews. And no, I'm not using forum money for such things, I'm often using my own money for the forums...

But this forum now must be really big(and heavy).
How much do have to pay for it now?

I still tend to be spending at least £50/month or so of my own money on the hosting for the forums, so any donations are appreciated!
