Woo hoo!! This could be the last thread of our first quarter FReepathon!!

We're now working on the new equipment fund. We're planning on replacing some of our aging and unreliable equipment and beefing up our system before the general elections. Hope to pay for half of it this quarter and the rest next quarter.

Only $2k to go!!

Woo hoo!! Let's get 'er done!!

No matter who gets the nomination or eventually wins the election, we're going to need FR more than ever to hold their feet to the fire!!

We need FR and FR needs you!!

Resistance to tyranny is obedience to God!!

We are the resistance!!

Please click the link above to pledge your support by secure server or mail checks to:

Free Republic, LLC - PO Box 9771 - Fresno, CA 93794

Thank you all very much!!

Prayers up for America!!

P.S. We have a very generous donor who has signed up to sponsor 5 new monthly donors anonymously. If you're considering becoming a monthly, now is your chance to git 'er done and FR gets a $10 bonus per new monthly donor!!

I think the new servers and faster connections will bring more interest to the entire forum.

Thank you deatest STAR! I’m much overrated in your most lavish praise! Thanks sweetest you for lavishing praising OUR TEAM, but you deserve likewise praise and many heart felt THANKS! YOU LIGHT UP OUR THREADS WITH YOUR ORIGINAL POSTS, just like this one!

RedMDer is actually underrated! I look to him as my source for inspiration and sheer delight! Unlike the rest of us, our RedMDer holds a real and full time day time job, but you’d never know it by the devotion and long hours he generously and joyfully puts in here! DJMacWoW and I love him to pieces! We spend many a night here, having a ball, *touring* and “High-Fiving*! The same goes for our musicman! Cajun stays late too and adds to our fun!

Thank you from my heart, dearest RedMDer! I think you’re the absolute best.

STARWISE, my shining STAR and beautiful pure heart GF, I love you all the way to Newt’s Moon and back!

JPB is so kind, talented and hilarious! He shares his talent with us and never asks for credt. He’s special beyond special.

Like I said yesterday, I love and appreciate all of you, and truly treasure your friendship’s, and I mean that seriously.

I watched New’t wonderful debate and went back to sleep! LOL.

It’s 81 degrees here today. I’ve been outside in the sunshine most of the day!

God bless and Keep you all!

A long way to go before we see any overrun. The monthlies were already estimated and counted in the total.

But we are fully funded for at least another quarter and John’s already specing out a powerful new database server as our first shot increasing throughput. Woo hoo!!

Dang straight!!! LOL

We are very fortunate that we all LIKE one another and can ask each other for help and inspiration. It works.
