    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://www.paypal.com/xclick/business=donations@sorcerers.net&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>

    No, guys picking girls up off the street and banging them in the back of a van is a little too lower class for my tastes. I'm much more into Twistys.com

    Would helping out with hosting ease the financial burden? Seems quite steep what they are requesting

    It wouldn't really, no. Keep in mind that $435 charge is for all the sites on the sorcerers network, of which TA is but one. All the sites have chipped in to help.
