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
Hosting is paid up for 2020!
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.
