The time comes in a website's life when it needs to grow up and move to new premises. Premises that cost money. Today, that time has come for the Codex. However, there's other stuff happening too and so, due to the length of this proposal, the rest is over here.

Here's the short version so we don't have a huge sticky here for the next month:

1. We're trying to raise $2,500 for our Server Slush Fund.

2. We'll also be bidding on some of the items in the Sir-Tech Auction (prices and items to be determined. Trust us).

3. If we get enough spare cash (another $2,500), we'll throw some at Cleve's Indie-Go-Go Project.

4. If we get a LOT of spare cash, it will be held for Future Codexian Purposes, like server space for my own web games and hookers. But mostly hookers for the Codex' benefit.

5. Donors will get a special tag, ad-free status and other goodies (to be determined). MAKE SURE YOU ENTER YOUR USER NAME IN THE LITTLE NOTE BOX PEOPLE

6. If you only wish to donate to a specific cause, say so in your donation note. This will all be handled manually anyway for now, so why not make it harder on me?​

DONATE HERE

And enter your username / details here:


The future of the Codex rests in your hands. Now is the chance to take those hands and help the Codex. Our future rests on them!

Donated a couple of dollars. Not much because I don't like the idea of Cleve getting this money.

Well, I'll be donating especially to get the Sir-Tech stuff. I don't mind being the bidder/ scanner/ holder of the Codex Museum Archives/ whatever and really look forward to looking through those docs! :obviously:

Good idea - we can be sure you won't get fingerprints on them. :troll:

Geez. Gotta stop browsing the codex! As of late, it has got a strange behavior of siphoning my money away :?

If only there was a non PayPal way to donate I would right away. I refuse to use it ever since they held up thousands of dollars of pay for weeks, from freelance work I did a long while ago.

If we get a good enough server, you should never see the "CF shit" again.

Most likely.

Possibly.

Ok, maybe.

Is cloudflare some kind of mafia scheme? This sure doesn't seem like "protection" and "supercharging" to me. :mad:

So was this really a site performance maintenance or were you just testing the new popamole animated status message?

I would be willing to donate a modest amount for this fundraiser if you let me use something besides paypal. Had to get my credit card to do a chargeback on them so I can't use it anymore. Skrill/moneybookers?

I'm sure DU will be happy to accept your fat checks. PM him.
Well, I may have to since paypal didn't accept my primary credit card (for reasons unknown), my secondary cc was somehow out of date without me having gotten my replacement automatically, and my tertiary one is shit and I don't want to even try to use it because the company behind it is a bunch of assholes.

This is a roundabout, drunken way of asking whether there's any common, easy explanation for why paypal didn't accept my normal credit card in the first place. It's just a normal visa, and I've had it for years and it's worked fine (and I've used it on paypal before, too)

Hey guys I have a riddle:
Why are 9/11 and the recent DDoS attacks on the Codex pretty much the same?

Both were inside jobs designed to make a select group rich.
By select group I mean Jews.
