over the years, Bill Cooper has made his servers available to us for FREE!
he
also hosts Speedgeezers, VROC and the Track Data Base.
when there is a problem, he's given me his personal ph# to call -
the other nite i was talking to him - at length about a small issue i was having with FTP
it got resolved and i asked "how much do i owe you?"   he replied "oh, $100 should cover it"

knowing Bill, his sense of humor would do something like that :)
but - now i'd like to see that we can go one better !

this is not mandatory, i'm only asking "IF" you can, to make a small donation to his "donate" location
http://srmz.net/index.php?app=donate

no specific amount - whatever you can ...  i think we can blow his $100 out of the water :)

Absolutely we should be paying it forward.
Especially those with a vested interest in content or are among the few who easily have the capacity.

The four most important things to do here are donate, save, comment, and backup.


:D

And also keep GPL Repository alive.
http://gplr.srmz.net/

The Repository is the place where infos and files for GPL modding are stored
and it hosts the private forum of all modders with tons of infos and files to create new content (mods, tracks, programs, patches, ...) for GPL.

Atm Bill Cooper has to buy a new hard drive for the Repository site/server,
so any donation is welcome. :)

Donate here:
http://srmz.net/index.php?app=donate


This is the current Repository thread:

Just plunked down 25USD for Bill.  That's real money!  Translates to 33.08CDN.  Amortized over the hours I've spent with GPL in the last two decades, it works out to something like...

$0.00000197/hour

That's a bargain!  :)
