Re: Money Pool for Hosting costs for a year

Is there any fine/fee/punitive measure if the pool is cancelled and redone? Would that be the easiest...? If there aren't a lot of donations yet. I would be willing to redo mine, speaking just for myself... 8-) anyhoo just wondering.

Re: Earthquakes, Tsunamis & Volcanos

I hate the way the pulse/roll makes me feel, kinda disoriented & kinda nauseated and I'm half a state away, sheesh. Definitely bigger & longer but epicenter was just about the same, 11 miles outside of Ridgecrest in San Bernadino County according to the USGS. Hopefully not a lot of damage... *finger...

Re: Money Pool for Hosting costs for a year

It was very easy to do!

For those doing USD conversions, $1.00 = 0.89ish Euros.

Re: Earthquakes, Tsunamis & Volcanos

I felt a roll, wondered if I was dizzy for a second, then wondered if it could possibly be a small quake... switched over to twitter and yup, earthquake. And I'm over 450 miles away from the epicenter!

(okay maybe 300miles as the crow flies, but there's mountains and stuff in the way)

Wow... so many horses, so many different drugs, over such a long time frame. And the fines are less than a slap on the wrist.

Wow.

If it's a rumor you'll get your chance to I-told-you-so. But it's not like we only single out Chrome to talk about what's been heard around the internet, it's not like a personal affront or anything.
