Donations to Support ArimaOwners.com
« on: April 28, 2020, 11:19:18 AM »
I want to thank everyone that donated money to help keep this site add free and to support upgrades. By my records, $610 has been donated. by the following people: GregE, Croaker Stroker, Hunter, Disposable, OhMyTodd, DavidSea, jamaica, Devmah, Eelkram, Grilse, Pdxmgunner, SoCalAngler, Wiley, markshoreline, xranger and Jeremey (I don't know Jeremey's handle).

If you donated and I did not send you a personal PM or email acknowledging your donation, please contact me so I can make sure it didn't get lost in the mail or via Paypal.

There were three donations of $100 and many in the $20 to $30 range. Thank you all.

The migration is mostly done. I still need to move the actual name ArimaOwners.com over and then pay up the web hosting and domain name fees for three years so that will take the monthly fee from $7.95/mo to $4.95/mo saving $108 and spending $178. This includes 20GB of storage which is double what was secured at GoDaddy. The domain fee is another $30.

I have spent $70 on a couple of mods to improve the Gallery function and allow me to adjust and add menu items. I have other mods I'm looking at as well to upgrade the forum.

Thank you all again,

-Danno

Since the expenses of running and upgrading the site are ongoing, I expect donating will be at least an annual event or more often as circumstances require.  I’m sure most of our users are with me on this.

I agree Dan let us know when you are running low on funds, we appreciate all the time you spend to keep this site up and running smoothly...
The least we can do it keep it funded and free of ad's.

Thanks everyone. Due to the generosity of many, we’re set for quite a while. In September, I’ll be re-upping the various items for three years out and there's plenty left in the kitty for additional upgrades.

I am a bit busy these days so I haven’t worked on the forum much lately. Upgrades to my Arima and fishing and a new pup that is high energy and demands attention. Ugh. What a stupid decision on the pup. But he is cute.

He really is cute and those feet look like he’s going to be a horse!  My wife wants a pup when our geriatric cat croaks but I can’t imagine taking care of one...

Our pup rescue was a real chore for me for about a year. I mean a real chore. He came close to being a victim of an accident on the homestead a few times. But he survived and so did I. The reward for all that work is he is a real great dog now. You are just getting started Danno.  :1zhelp:

That was at 3 months old. We were the mom was pure bred German Shepard and the sire was unknown. We got her at the Orange County German Shepard Rescue. One of the other adopters had a DNA test done on their pup. Here are the results:

He looks like he Belgian Malinois.
