We're getting close. After taking a really good look at our logs, we've discovered that we're pushing a lot more down the pipe than any of us realized. The site is at the point where our small ISP can no longer handle the load. We want to thank our current ISP, LocalWeb, for being so gracious in letting us bog down their servers for as long as we have.
The donations so far have been nothing short of amazing. We are deeply in our readers debts, and work working to repay that debt with a site that works. We are getting close to having enough money to allow us to find a good host that can accommodate our growth over the next year. As far as picking that host, we have a couple pretty serious offers, and others who are still thinking about it. Here again, the generosity of folks is amazing, you wouldn't believe how many people have a friend or a relative that works at an ISP.
I'm hoping that we can get the site moved by early January, and get back to regular life around here as soon as possible. We thank you again for all your support, and we'll keep you posted as to what's going on.

A non-PayPal option would be helpful. Many people have had problems getting their CC to work with PayPal and bankdrafts take forever. And some people simply do not like using Paypal anymore. See <http://www.paypalwarning.com> for more horror stories.
How about posting an address people can mail your a check to if they need a non-PayPal option?
