As many of you know we have outgrown our hardware a few times during the life of The Lounge, in addition to beeing troubled with power cuts at the site we hosted the server. Theese problems ended up with a total hardware failure which lead us to the recent "servercrash".

At that point we had two options: 1. Buy new hardware and continue to serve as usual, or as we choose: 2. Move it all over to a paid webhotel.
The positive side of our choise is higher uptime, and increased stability for you users.
The negative side is that there is a higher cost then before. We are running their largest package due to the traffic generated by this forum. Which is by the way very good :-)

Therefor we have added a "Donate" button, as you might already have noticed, that we humbly hope you will use.
(You can choose to use PayPal if you have an account, or any major credit card safely via Paypal)

We really appreciate your support and would like to ensure you that all donations to The Lounge will be used to pay for hosting and other costs related to keeping this site alive and continuing to serve you.

Thank you,

Trond and Jon
