If the web revenues fell off to certain point I'd probably downgrade the server, hopefully that doesn't happen. This isn't a reflection of my work, I'm as busy as ever, it's just that web advertising is down.
Do the advertisements pay for the forums, or is there a bit that you cover personally? I think it would be really helpful if there was a Paypal account people could donate to if the ads don't quite pay for everything.

My sig, meh, sometime, if my parents ever come through, (which I hope they will) I'll be banned. I need to take a break, but I can't fight the evils of...the internet. :wtf:

It's like my mate told me, to talk to people on the internet, you have to have serious issues.

Do you guys have a place to complain about all things "benheck" over there? cause it seems like that's all you do over here.

I'd be willing to chip in a bit periodically if it was needed. Everything I know about electronics I've learned here, so that would be cool.
It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.

Actually, it is against the rules over there. The complaining done here is either appropriate or not, but it is out of our jurisdiction. ;)

Yeah there is a rule over there that complaining about benheck or bringing the argument to modretro will result in a lock and a ban,so no complaining. Acyually things are really peaceful over there, and we get many many new awesome smileys from SS, like an afrolh one, a palmer ranger one, a eurddrue one, and we're chirning them out as I post this. You should register and be a part of both collin.

I've been thinking about it.

Benheck is kinda my home, though. I'd rather promote respect and unity here, than just act like modretro is where the real business takes place and benheck is where you come to just shoot the breeze. I've been there quite a bit and I see a lot of the same threads and I don't like the idea of having to go to two different places to see all the comments. I just wish it was all in one place like it used to be.
