Dear HSD Users,
When Isaiah McPeak (Isaiah) transfered HSD to me in May of 2005 he also transferred the monthly bill to me. For the last 28 months, I have been paying $8.95/month. Just last week I had to renew our domain name (the registration of "www.homeschooldebate.com"), for another $60. All in all, the cost of keeping up HSD for the last two years has come out to be $310.60.
Usually I'm quite financially secure and the simple costs of keeping up the site is a drop in the bucket. However, I'm entering college this fall and am currently over $1000 short of what I need to finish out the year. Basically, if I don't make $1000+ before the spring, I'll have to drop out of school. If you take that into consideration, every $8.95 makes a big difference.
I do not want to request donations or charge for any basic functions. In fact, every single piece of the forum will remain free and available to all. What I would like to offer is that with a $5 donation, you will receive an HSD email address.
The details of the email address:
*15 Megabytes of space.
*Pop3 and IMAP access from any email client (Outlook, Thunderbird, Eudora, etc).
*Forwarding capabilities to any other email address.
I'm sure there are lots of other things that the email address will do, but I really don't know what to list. If you have any questions about the email addresses, just ask.I do not want to make a profit from your charity or free-spirit. I will keep a record of every dollar I make here in this thread.
As far as payment goes, you can mail me a check or send me a transaction on Paypal. If you email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
I can give you my address or answer any other specific questions you might have.
If you have any questions as to my motives, specifics, or anything else. Post here and I'll answer it for you. Let me know what ya'll might want or expect from this transaction.
You think you're radical
But you're not so radical
In fact, you're fanatical
