Doc and Chuck,

Another board I frequent (Modern Musclecars) recently switched to phpBB. This board seems to be as good as many commercial ones while being open source. It will get around loading a huge index file (it's up to what, 1Mb now?) and the scroll for miles list by keeping only 20 or so active threads on the first page.

I'll see if I can provice some financial help too. The slant six Internet community is about the only resource out there to help with building this engine.

I agreee- phpBB would be a great way to go.

Being a /6 newbie, this site has helped me out many times. My donation is in the mail.

Let us know about Paypal? That would be a great and simple method for each of us to make a contribution. If paypal would work for you,you could just post a note once a Quarter or whenver needed, and say it's time for each of you to send a little $$$. Everyone who depends on this list and the knowlege of those who frequent it, should be glad to contribute!! I know I will.
If paypal is not OK, I'll mail my check Tuesday.

Thanks,

Rick

<FONT COLOR="ff0000">Thanks Andrew. There sure are some great folks on this site.

You can send donations through Paypal. Go to paypal.com and use <A HREF="mailto:cpr@omnipages.com">cpr@omnipages.com</A> for the e-mail address. That is a great way to donate. It makes it quick and easy for both of us! Thanks for the suggestion.

Along with the others here, I will send Chuck something through PayPal. If not out of place, however, may I ask what would be appropriate? Or should I ask: What is needed? Other sites have a membership with dues to defer the costs. It would be helpful if Chuck could come up with a long range game plan where the cost of running this site, in whatever venue, could be approximated. It is not fair to have one individual bear all the expenses while everyone else enjoys the advantages of this site. I for one would be willing to pay in return for the privilages afforded within.

Regards

Mitch

I haven't posted much at all, but I enjoy reading this board on an almost daily basis. I would like to thank you for all your hard work and dedication and only wish I had found this sight 10 years ago. I would also be willing to pay dues if it comes to that. My contribution, though small, is waiting for the postal workers to come back to work. I hope that all goes well and would like to again say thanks for all you do for us slanted type folks!
