Solarchat forum extended 3 more years...

Post by solarchat » Mon May 20, 2019 1:51 am

Thanks to the 15 donors from Solarchat during our recent fundraiser we have been able to pay the $1900 required to extend the web hosting, domain name, and SSL certificate for three years.
Now, as long as there are no problems from the hundreds of thousands of daily hackers attempting to get in, we should be good.
Thank you to the small group of people that support the forum for everyone else.

That's good news Stephen. I hope we are in a position for it to still be running after that too.

Hi Stephen!

I am glad that we are able to keep this source of information for us solar people running for three more years. It is always an inspiration to see other contributers fantastic pictures and try to obtain the same quality myself. (Which so far has not happened :) It was also nice to meet you at NEAF this year Stephen.
Best regards
