how much money would it take to get a new server? i used to visit this site every day but lately getting the site to work has made me visit less and less. its kind of sad because this is the site that got me started in maille and i see it as my home site. i also don't want to see it not being used because of some technical difficulty. now i don't have much money but i am willing to donate what i can to get the ball rolling on making this place better.

I'd love to, and we do have the money, but the technical challenge, and amount of man-hours, involved in moving the site to another server is stunningly large.

I'm working on our host to fix it, but they just aren't very competent...

that's one reason why i was asking. because it seems like our current server could care less. i do appriciate the work you are putting into this site though. i would volenteer (sp?) to do some work but i have absolutely no experiance in these kinds of things.
