I'd like to ask all FV members to donate ANY spare bandwidth to our friends at the Wormwood Society. Even if you just have a few unwanted kilobytes lying around the house, in this desperate hour, every byte counts. Rest assured your unwanted bandwidth will find a deserving home, and will be lovingly moderated at all times.

I myself will be donating nearly a megabyte, and I challenge ALL Fee Verte regulars to match or better that. It's time to dig deep. Kirk? Provenance? Grim? C'mon gentlemen.

I want to be sure I understood you correctly, did you say kilobyte or bite-to-kill? I ask because they seem a bit a toothless over there and that wouldn't be at all fair if you said the latter.

Well thank goodness Oxy's been monitoring WS operational status so vigilantly and that he was appropriately moved to bring us this urgent update in near real-time. Good lookin' out, don't know what they wouldda done withoutcha! Fortunately, there's so much spare bandwidth at LFV some days you can almost hear a pin drop amongst the data packets, so I'm sure it wont be a problem to help 'em out. heart.gif

Maybe someone's tied the line up ordering a pizza to be made and delivered. You know how picky they can get about ingredients and cooking instructions.

I could donate a 56K modem for their dial-up modem pool, and a crimp tool. For connectors.

Hey, I got an idea. Why not save space by just posting an MD5 checksum of an intended post, instead of the post itself? Just a one-liner of garbled hexadecimal.

Unlimited bandwidth starts from $4.99 a month... So you have to be really REALLY cheap to have anything else.

There's been a few times I blew off making a post there because I couldn't upload a graphic with it. Or sometimes it was nothing but a graphic I wanted to post. I noticed last week, when I was last over there, that not all the images posted were linked from some other website; some were uploaded directly, so some members there apparently have that privilege.

Just can't be satisfied overusing the emoticons there like everyone else, huh?

Why don't you two get a room and finger it out in private.
