To the DaniWeb community:
I started DaniWeb back in 2002 as a hobby project while in college, paying hosting costs from money earned tutoring in the university's computer lab. Since then, I've bootstrapped my way through the past eleven years. We're a 100% free community, and advertising revenue has always paid for the enormous hosting costs necessary to accomodate DaniWeb's traffic. Until now.
Unfortunately, advertising rates are ever declining in this industry, it's getting tougher and tougher to manage our expenses, and I need your help. If you have ever found DaniWeb helpful, useful, fun, a great learning experience, a place to meet, talk to and share ideas with smart, talented people, or has in some way enhanced your life over the past decade, please help us out with a financial contribution. Every little bit helps to move forward and keep going strong now and into the future.
