2016 Hosting Costs

Postby ObnoxiousBlue » Tue Sep 27, 2016 10:03 am

I didn't even realize our contract was up for renewal! Apparently, I turned on auto-renew at some point. The 2016 fees have apparently been hitting my credit card (because our club PayPal wasn't there to cover the renewal) and I never even noticed it. I should probably pay more attention to that...
If you want to contribute to the hosting cots use the membership button above.

Thanks!

Based on amount of total bill / number of people that will probably buck up... what is the recommended contribution per person?

Mike... thanks as always for this.

Good questions.
We are on a 1 and 1 Linux Pro Package. We upgraded to pro a few years ago, after we got hit with overage charges.
The package is $14.99 a month (because our discounted plan expired after the first year)
Then we have secure email which is $5.99 a month. I should really call about that because I think they include it in the packages now if you open a new account.
So it works out (at current) to $20.98/mo
I didn't even realize it renewed and that there wasn't anything left on our club account. It looks like it renewed at the beginning of the summer and the charges just got passed through PayPal on to my credit card. I'll cover the last few months if folks wanna chip in a couple bucks to help cover more of the year.
The membership numbers are outdated... The "Membership" button sends $30, the "Supporter" button sends $15.
Those figures go back to when we did the VVWCA memberships and decals.
If you prefer to send a month's costs, you can paypal direct to membership@dasvolks.com

So... It's available.
But we have two issues.
1) All my cars already have vanity plates - except my parents Passat.
So, do I buy another car to get the plate?
2) I'm not the prez, so you guys would have to hold an election, but I can't run unopposed - is Hillary available?

Thanks everyone for your help!
