    Doug, don't worry about it. The members here realize that we're doing it for our own pleasure and education as much as for any other reason.

    I'd love it if you could give us an update sometime on what changes will occur when your webserver company rolls out "the new class of service" -- are the Archives going to come back on line then, as well as having enough room for us to keep doing all those Member Challenges, etc. When are you going to tell us more about "the major new service addition to the site." You posted that you were going to "shamelessly tease" us until a few technical problems got worked out. Can't you give us a HINT?

      Thanks Doug for all your hard work...

      I've been spending my time lately putting together a family reunion web site and having slogged my way through reams and reams of PHP, mySQL, Javascript, and so forth (a lot of it written in German) I have an even greater appreciation of what it takes for Doug to keep this site running smoothly.

      I sent in my contribution and like David mentioned with the stronger Canadian dollar it seems less than usual but I hope it will help.

      Take care, Margaret

        CJ brings up two excellent points.

        As far as the new class of webserver service, I can only assume at this point that it will mean more space and bandwidth. How much of each I can only guess, but it will probably be "a lot". The other advantage will be limited sharing, so we'd be only one of a few sites running on one machine, instead of one of thousands as we are now. This should help speed and reliability. Aside from that I really can't say (because I don't know). There's always the possibility that their offering will be disappointing (since they won't give me any clues, either). In that case we'll just move (a shame, since I really like this current company, plus moving is such a pain).

        As far as the 'tease' is concerned, it really isn't fair of me to wait so long before telling anything more about it. I was expecting for the new feature to be up and running long before now, but cascading technical problems have conspired to delay it. It is far and away the most complex, ambitious (and expensive) addition to the site so far, and could possibly dwarf even the forums and gallery in popularity. Or not, since I've been wrong before

          YAY!
          I just ordered Painter 8 through RP. And sent in my contribution in the process.

              Ohhhhhh! He did it again, only BIGGER!


              Tony -- I'm so glad that you were able to get Painter 8 via the RP support system. I'm happy to have been mistaken.

                Doug - Will do.

                CJ -Painter 8 was just linked today. I would think it's because you PM'd Doug.

                  Tony -- I didn't PM Doug; I thought you would .
                  I think Doug read your request.

                        Well, count me in. Thanks BigAl for reminding us this year. I know I have gotten way more support and help than I could have gotten anywhere else. You guys here have been a real big boost to my learning curve and I really appreciate having this site to come to for help.

                        Thanks Doug for providing this for us.

                          I finally got mine sent in. Anyone else a little late? You can contribute any time you feel like it.

                              On another thread, Doug said "We have a bad combination of intense server requirements and virtually no budget. Going with a "name" webserver company with our requirements would cost easily over $1000 per year. "

                              I told you I'd remind you didn't I? For those of you who might not know what I'm referring to: We are having a fund drive beginning the 19th of May for 1 week (beginning in a little more than 1 day). It's strictly voluntary, but if you don't donate -- well -- you'll be shot! We're trying to get...

                              With all the discussion about generating money for Retouch Pro I figured I would ask this question... With 20000 people a month visiting the site, 1200+ members and an owner who is constantly improving and updating features, what would be the possibility of getting the site or part of the site sponsored...

                              Here's a good thread!

                              A post by DUV led me to post this. I was going to wait for the end of January, but this might be a good time.

                              It’s past time for us to dig down into our socks again. Our last fund drive started during the last part of June, 2003.

                              I was just reading Doug's post about what goes on BEHIND THE SCENES AT RETOUCH PRO and realizing yet again what an amazing place this is.

                              I'm thankful to have found it, and even more thankful to have been invited to be a working part of it.
