As some of you know, I haven't ridden in 5 years, and as such I do not participate in the forums very regularly. Yesterday was my last day at Palantir, and I don't have anything lined up just yet. Today, as luck would have it, I received a message from godaddy about domain renewal for the site. It isn't due until Feb 25. it won't break me to renew the domain, but it would be nice if somebody stepped up. Web hosting services are still generously provided by a former co-worker and friend, so the domain and time are the only expenses the site incurs.

Got a Paypal link? Happy to help what I can. A lot of forums put that somewhat prominently on various pages..might be something to think about.

Thanks for hosting,
