One nice thing about the cooler weather is the grass finally stops growing an inch every 10 minutes. I’ve learned to enjoy yard work as I’ve improved my health, but I’m looking forward to doing less of it over the next few months. It felt great waking up this morning with absolutely nothing to do. I can’t remember the last time that happened!

I spent most of yesterday working on things for the new company. I want to thank forum member “Puddy” for converting the JSF logo from raster to vector. He did a fantastic job. I just printed the logo out on my photo printer scaled to fill a 8.5 x 11 page at 300 dpi and it looks absolutely perfect – nice and crisp. Now I can proceed with design phase of the JSF merchandise. Once I have the stuff designed, I’m going to order one of everything so I can make sure the quality of the product is up to snuff. Once that’s all done, the JSF store will be open for business. It won’t be long now!

Many of you have been asking for a way to donate to this site. I worked on a donation/subscription system yesterday, and have taken the concept further than a simple donation button. You can check out the details on the Donation page.

I want to sincerely thank everyone who has donated so far. For the past two years I’ve been losing more and more money with each passing month as I’ve struggled to keep this site and the forums operational and free of charge. Costs continue to rise as the main site and the forum’s popularity grows, and most of you know about my recent 25% pay cut. Thanks to your generous support this may be the first month since I started the site in which I don’t lose money (ignoring the startup costs of the new company, which are significant). The charter members of this site will always hold a very special place in the JSF history books. Thanks.
