Greetings, Beerlings! Take me to your lager, but do so s-l-o-w-l-y...

Well, folks, as a result of my plea for ponsors/donations in order to bump the HBD up to T1 connectivcity, the HBD has received a hopping $75 and has had no response from last year's sponsor.

With the economy and job market as they are, my wife needing a replacement car, kids liking to eat, etc., I cannot justify the added expense - even if I drop our home internet service and move the family onto the T1, I cannot move between what we pay for connectivity today to the cost of the T1 without taking monies from my family.

So, since the current offer is up 31 March, the T1 project is scrapped until and
unless they make the offer again AND we've captured a sponsor. I guess we're fast
enough, for the time being.

And thanks to those who stepped up and pitched in. Your donations will still be put to good use keeping the HBD online.

Pat, it's a great board and wonderful service that is provided to anyone for free. While some donate, if many others think it is worth nothing and it fails, it is not because of you or your efforts. Your family should not suffer becuase "we" fail to support it. Thanks for your work.
