    Default Board Upgrade 2019!

    I was hoping to hold off until the Christmas break but apparently there's a security issue with the version of vBulletin that we're running which will require me to upgrade to the latest version of the software sooner rather than later.

    I hope to get the upgrade completed in the next few days, and will try to keep the upgrade activity (and board downtime) to between the hours of midnight and 6 am CDT.

    Since the software upgrade is a not insignificant cost, and since this endeavor is pretty drastically non-profit to begin with, and since I rather enjoy being married to my current spouse:

    My Better Half suggests that those of you with more money than sense (although she put it quite a bit nicer than that) might want to go hit the PayPal button that's over there on the left side of the ol' blog page:

    http://sdsufans.com

    Apparently, according to Filbertwife, there's a box you can check on PayPal to indicate that it's a "friends" payment and if you check that PayPal won't take their usual cut of the transaction.

    (Yeah, I'm not real good at this self-promotion thing.)

    You are better off to log-into pay-pal and send this to friends and family. your link on the homepage does not do that (I don't think).

    To be honest, I have no idea, I don't really use PayPal all that much. Apparently it's an option on the iOS app.

    Will the new version of this board have a roof on it, sell beer, and only show the full side? If so, I'm all in.

    For real though, how much you need? You put a goal out there and I'm guessing we reach it in no time.

    I like this Goal Idea. I would think at least a dollar a Day or maybe a couple dollars for each registered user(#'s wise that is) Thanks Phil.

    So your saying you pretty much covered the cost of the whole thing eh? Just kidding but seriously.

    Well, the (surprise!) upgrade is $350 or so. The ongoing operating costs are . . . er . . . "I was told there would be no math!!!"
