For those of you who don't know, the hosting for Terra-Arcanum is provided by Taluntain of <a href="http://www.sorcerers.net">Sorcerers.net</a>. If you also didn't know, the ad banners pay sweet bugger all (or in fact, a little bit more than nothing) when it comes to actually keeping this place running. Well, the server we run on is in need of a RAM upgrade: <br><blockquote>Sorcerer's Place and all our hosted sites have grown and expanded considerably, and the recent server CPU upgrade alone wasn't enough. We need more RAM, badly. I've done all I could in terms of optimization, but overall it doesn't mean much - we still get occasional blackouts, slowdowns, and even complete server shutdowns because the load is simply too high for the server to handle over a prolonged period of time. <br> <br>So, I'm putting out a call for donations. Money collected here will benefit everyone, as it will directly improve accessibility and performance of SP and our hosted sites. So, if you can, <a href="https://email@example.com&item_name=Donations+for+Terra+Arcanum&no_shipping=1">please donate</a> for the cause. The memory upgrade consists of a set-up fee ($75) and $30 every month after that. That makes it about $435 for the first year. I hope we can raise this amount in one go and then forget about it for a year (before we have to raise it again). This money will be used strictly for upgrading the server with another gigabyte of RAM. <br> <br>Thanks in advance to all who decide to help out!</blockquote> <br><a href="https://firstname.lastname@example.org&item_name=Donations+for+Terra+Arcanum&no_shipping=1">You can donate here</a>. Even just a lazy $5 will be much appreciated.
