Is this still a thing? I know this post is two years old, but are you all still with dreamhost? Are your hosting costs still in the $110 range?

We are still with dreamhost, yes, where the raw posting costs are approximately in this range.  There are discounts to be had, however.  (And the hosting has remained pretty consistently stable with dreamhost over the years, if that is why you are asking.)

Our hosting bills are currently paid up until July 2013, by which point we would need another $50.63.

kobok, how much longer would that $50 cover?

That, plus the existing balance, will cover from July 2013 to July 2015.

Sure, I will think about donating.

Dollars in a few months, I will.
Celebrating 27 years of meditation practice, delving deeper in the mystical, mantic arts and hands-on thaumaturgy.

And if I told you that I loved you.
You'd maybe think there's something wrong,
Im not a man of too many faces,
The mask I wear is one.
Those who speak know nothing,
And find out to their cost,
Like those who curse their luck in too many places,
And those who fear are lost...

Our every-two-year hosting bill has come around again for this month.  Thanks to the contributions of several members signing up for referral accounts over the past two years, and a generous donation from Koujiryuu we are very close to the amount of the bill.

I'd just like to take this moment to remind everyone that the following donation link is still active, and that everything donated is applied directly to the hosting bill that keeps this community online and running:

http://www.dreamhost.com/donate.cgi?id=11729

Any amounts donated in excess of the amount needed right now are automatically applied to the next hosting bill, and thus every donation purchases further longevity for this site.  Thanks again to everyone who has contributed so far, and thanks to anyone who clicks the link and donates more.

I was wondering when this would come back around (and then it took me 5 days to notice it had). This is the first metaphysics community that I've truly considered donating to; the Veritas Society is excellent and much more rational than so many other metaphysics groups, and is without a doubt worth keeping around.

Glad to have helped, I want to see this site continue to grow and be successful to 2020 and beyond.

Haha, any particular reason you say 2020? Do you have plans?
And if that doesn't work, try focal meditation.

No plans, just some arbitrary date I chose that seems well enough into the future.

Also, this site started getting very serious around 2004 or so, before that it was fluffy and juvenile, this was around the time kobok joined the community. So, in 2020 we'll have about 15 years worth of thoughtful posts. I suppose 2024 would probably be our 20th anniversary of being a serious metaphysical community. It will be interesting to see the site grow and change in this timeframe.
