    Default I need some help....

    I need some help.

    I hate doing this. I really do. But, a couple recent events have forced me to this point.

    As many of you are aware, I run a small web design and hosting company. This is what I do. I don't have a "day job" as it were, this is it.
    This allows me to run sites like MartialTalk and KenpoTalk without spending a fortune on hosting. Most months, everything is fine. April however, and now May have been quite a different story.

    *A client renting an expensive dedicated server jumped ship in mid-april on me. They decided not to let me know this, and I found out about it when I checked their server and found it empty. Needless to say, they aren't paying for May, but I got stuck with all the charges.
    *Two clients decided not to renew the domains I was hosting, and again decided not to tell me.
    *Several other clients are more than 3 months late on their payments.

    These happenings, combined with my costs going up, have put me in a world of hurt. The server situation alone cost me several hundred dollars. When people tell me they need an extra week, I give it to them. In some cases, it's cost me.

    I hate having to ask for help, but this month and next are going to be very rough. I'm not asking for any handouts, donations or charity. There are others in worse situations than I who deserve that level of giving.

    What I am asking is, if you need hosting for your school, your organization, your business, or just for kicks....if you need site work or graphic work....please, give me a shot. Take out a banner ad on MartialTalk or Kenpotalk, or just become a Supporting Member. Every bit will help get me through this rough time.

    I've dedicated myself and my businesses to being the best when it comes to customer satisfaction. You can ask any of my clients about the quality of my work. Many of them are on this board now.

    Like I said, I really hate asking for help here...but, I need some help to make it through this challenge.
    All support greatly appreciated.

    Thank you.
    Bob

    For those of you who are not yet supporting members, it's $12 bucks a year. Not a lot of money.

    And it's a great way to say 'thank you' for this great place to learn about kenpo and share your thoughts.

    A buck a month. And it will help keep things moving.

    Thanks for this great site. Money is tight here too with 3 kids but I am your newest supporting member. Glad to do my part even if it is a small one.

    Salute,
