    That's just a display glitch, I'm sure. (Plus I read Squidgey's other reply post...)
    I know my hard earned dollars are going toward efforts to hack XBL and bump up my stats - and not toward golf junkets for Jamey and Squidgey.
    At least, I'm pretty sure. They do look tan...

    Sorry I missed this post yesterday. Here's the paste from the other one posted this morning:

    I pinged Commanchero this morning to remind him to go accept all the donations. It'll take him a few days given that he has to remember how to accept the donations and then remember what a computer is and how to turn it on, without accidentally pushing his LifeCall button a few times in the process...

    As to what the donations are for, the goal of the donations is to cover the cost of hosting of the site. GeezerGamers.com has no advertising and no source of income, other than the hard-earned paychecks of the founders who pay for it all out of their pockets when the donations don't cover they monthly hosting costs.

    JameyT says it far more eloquently:

    If you've largely forgotten what it's like to have to play with the unwashed masses because you're Friends List has been full for ages: please consider donating a few bucks to the site. It keeps the lights on and gives us a place to connect when we're not connecting via our consoles.

    GeezerGamers has never been a website. It has always been a community. Thank you for making it a great place to find likeminded souls for all these years.

    If you're in the position to donate to keep the lights on for another year, please do. If times are tough (like they are for so many folks) don't worry about it.

    Thanks ahead of time,

    Jamey T

    Thank you founders, for keeping the lights on. I really appreciate it! I really liked Jamey's post. It makes me want to do my part, but doesn't feel like someone telling me what to do. That's what good leadership is all about.

    AND it's paypal, how sweet is that?! What does the "status update" mean?

    Oh, and it's also really sweet that the donation starts at $5 it makes me feel like I want to do more, but I don't have to feel bad if I don't.
