Pay a month of the Wiki
The wiki costs me $10 a month which sometimes on a fixed income is a challenge. The provider is Linode.
Unless told to use it to enjoy in leisure, all donations go into wiki upkeep costs (Linode monthly $10 cost). Months listed below are months a community member kindly paid for the wiki to be operational for the community instead of paying for it myself out of pocket--which is greatly appreciated in tough times.
April - Thanks Katie Hodapp for supporting the wiki!
May & June - More generosity! Thanks Richie Liebscher!
July - Thanks Ross Carmichael may you have a banging Fourth!
August & September - William Uicker thanks Sir!
October & November - Michael Courtenay, thanks!
December & Domain reg costs - James Stuart woohoo!
Hosting is paid up for 2020!
Jan & Feb - Carl Attenhofer thanks!
Use your IT Skillz
If you want to help on the backend for whatever reason or if you want to learn Linux reach out. I have 22yrs of IT Experience and do it all myself. I wouldn't oppose having another as a backup resource if I was killed etc. Skillz that are useful or trainable if interested: Linux, Apache, MySQL, Php the basics as other obscure shit.
