    Every time I try to log on to this website it seems it's down. What's the deal? It's getting really boring to check back here 25,879 times a day. Is this ever going to get fixed?
     
  2. Thread continues after this sponsor message. SDN Members do not see this ad.

Until then, be thankful that Lee opens up his wallet WIDE for us to be here. --Trek

A smart one at that.

    I'm pretty sure Lee supports SDN out of his own wallet as a hobby. He uses whatever contributions are made from those ad banners to help pay for the site. Even when you buy an SDN T-shirt, it helps pay for SDN. I don't think a profit is involved, and if there is one, I'm think it's pretty small.

    So thank you Lee! <img border="0" alt="[Clappy]" title="" src="graemlins/clappy.gif" /> U rock!

    foxy's right. Running SDN is not cheap.. It's not like Lee's running SDN from his laptop on a dial-up. To give you an idea, here's an 'excellent' deal on a T1 line:

    <a href="http://cybert1.com/" target="_blank">http://cybert1.com/</a>

    Local Loop
    Unlimited Access
    Full t1
    $599 / month

    Usually T1's cost $1200/month. (and that's only the fee for the bandwidth costs)
