Cool! The hats might be able to fund a Cray and a fiber optic Ethernet network!
Cray?! You’re old.
Yebbut the CRAY prices have probably come down since 1983.

I say go for the HAL9000.

I'm reading (but admittedly not fully understanding technically - and that's OK) in the other thread that we are migrating something or another. Seeing as though NOTHING in this world is free, one can only assume that this "migration" is costing somebody some money.

Is now a good time to ask if anybody needs some money to do this? We're buying the hats and the license plate holders and any other trinkets that are available, but if that isn't cutting the mustard, then please (PLEASE) tell us.

I'm not selling it, even though I am. I'm just bumping this shamelessly to re-iterate my commitment for support. Don't know if it's an option, and I don't get a vote, but for the record, my preference is to pay a fee to use the site over banner or other advertisement.

Wayne and I are in agreement that money for this forum will raised by selling products. License plate frames, hats, calendars, etc. If you want to support the forum, that is the way to do it. There will be more products to come.

Now if you want to buy me or Wayne a beer next time you see us, I won't object. :D

Why you gotta have posts from Wheatie and me in your example?
