Do you find this site useful? Then become a sponsor.
« on: May 01, 2009, 23:15:00 PM »
Ok guys (and gals...), since Tony doesn`t have the time to run the site anymore, I and my brother (cossiemk2) are running it now.

I moved the site to a better host and will keep it running as it is supposed to do 
However, good hosting is not cheap and i also need to work to pay the bill.

So, if you enjoy this site(who doesn't?), why not make a little donation?

It`s easy:
Just click on the button just below the 3 small pictures at the top of the homepage

However, do add a description (including your membername), so i`ll know it`s from one of our members.
So i can change the status to Donation Sponsor 

Greetings,
Olaf (fordrwd4ever)

It's not just for Tony paying for the server etc.

It's also for the people doing the work keeping the site up to date and working as it should do.

It's been a lot of work trying to get the site back online and keep it running.

If you could spare a couple of quid to help us out it would mean a lot.

many thanks to tho's who  have helped,,

right now i am arranging to buy back our original domain fordpower.org.uk, as you might rememeber this was with supanet and they refused to pass it over to our new provider,
at this time i am expecting a bill for £92 from nominet who now hold this domain so you can see the money will be used for the site and not extra burgers or beer!!
also i am talking to some companys in regard to good quality merchandise, i will update this as soon as i have more info!

Well, let`s hope Tony can pull it of again  
In the mean time , i have added a lot of keywords to the frontpage and submitted the site to numerous search engines.

So the site will be more easy to find in a little while  

p.s. I also made a little donation

that means, for me, less answering mails from people, that are searching for ford power.

Wow, great  

So i can resubmit the site to all the search engines again.
(poor database, it is going to get a big hammering when the old name is back...)
The site will get a lot more visitors again, like it deserves...

Well done mate

Long engagements are not always good either. That's what cause our problem. Everything was cool for a while but after I propsed it was like "it'ok now because we're getting married so why not?"  
We would have been better to have just got married sooner.
