For those asking about donating to the site
 
Hey all... I didn't expect it, but I've gotten a few PMs about how to donate to the site. Apparently there are a lot of people pleased with the new upgrade... :rainbow:

I certainly don't expect anything, but am happy to receive when I do. It goes a long ways toward offsetting costs (ie. a new liscence for the board software, server costs, domain costs, etc.). For those who are wondering what is a proper amount, don't worry about it... I've gotten anywhere from $2.50 on up. Just ask yourself how much you feel the site has been worth to you (perhaps the cost of a movie rental or two), and what you can reasonably part with...

And again, I don't expect a dime. I do this out of love for the Broncos and its fans, and with hopes that I can someday do something really special with the site when the time is right.

It's important to note that these are "gift donations" for tax purposes... (I can accept any gift under $10,000 without tax complications. Anything over that, and I have to report it. Of course, that's academic. A fiver is a lot of help if you ask me!).

Thanks for the support!

Hey, Taco, if sending you more than $10,000 is going to be a hassle, maybe I should just forget the whole thing.

Gimme a call I will help you with this.

Will do... But it'll have to wait a bit... I'm behind at work right now, and will be taking a business trip over the next couple of days, so I won't even be able to think about it...

I appreciate the offer, but for now, I want to tackle this learning curve... I'm setting up a test forum that I can tweak and learn on...

Rock Chalk 01-07-2004 03:42 PM

TJ, this is such an improvement I might have to send you a naked stripper for your birthday. Just tell the misses to run down to the local star bucks for a few hours ;D

Technically, wouldn't you be sending him just a naked chic?

Rock Chalk 01-07-2004 03:53 PM

Hmm

I guess she wont show up naked but will end up that way :)

Taco John 01-07-2004 04:02 PM

Thanks but no thanks... :)

The Seniorita keeps me plenty happy in that department... ;D

Rock Chalk 01-07-2004 04:04 PM

Bah, you gonna tell me that you would tell a hot looking barely 18 year old hard body with boobies the size of melons and an ass so tight it could turn coal into a diamond no? Married or no, Im gonna at LEAST get a lap dance.

Heh... Portland has more stripclubs per capita than anywhere in the States...

Think about that... More brew-pubs where they brew their own specialty beers, and more strip clubs per capita than anywhere in the nation...

Nnyah! !Booya! Nnyah! !Booya!

Plus the city is trying to make a land trade deal with a tribe down here so that they can open a casino (complete with sportsbook) downtown...

:pimp:

Pezman 01-07-2004 04:33 PM

OK I talked to the wifey who's a guru of taxes and finance (its her job) and she says that the donations are safe up to $12,999.99 so there!

Not that I could afford it but hey maybe if I fake winning the lottery and then claim I lost the winning ticket and then sue the person who really wins it... ah nevermind
