Just to update everyone, the Amazon affiliate program is bringing us some success. The first month was about $60, second was around $75, and for this month we are currently at $55.
If we can trend $50+ a month, I can certainly cover the remainder of the hosting bill.
I just received the first payment today (the $60). There is a lag with the payments; I suppose to cover themselves for any returns.
Thanks guys! Keep it up.
I'm going to move forward with talking to the portal developer about getting the site over to the latest Vbulletin. I still think it's 3-4 months away but we'll see how everything shakes out.
