Default Site Responsivness

Hi All,

Now that I am back I can really see how the site has suffered from being throttled. Often it is unresponsive. This has nothing to so with whether the bills are paid or not, it has to do with the plan I took after the divorce. I really had to pair things back to keep the lights on. I am nearly out of the woods in that regard and will be looking to change hosts and find a better solution. When I do the response blues as I call them will go away. So thanks for hanging in there and hold on just a while longer, it will get better.

Oh, and if you are getting a security warning that is simply because the root cert needs to be updated. That will happen soon'ish too.

You could create a way for people to donate both their time and money to help you out. I've been a member since the old Lightwave group and would be glad to offer both.

Maybe you could start a Patreon page for the forum. I think 1-5€ is something I could afford every month.

You can actually do that already. Just use f3d,sales@foudnation3d.com for our PayPal account. Donate whatever you would like. Just make sure to note in the comments it's a donation so I don't try to find a corresponding sale to take care of.
