Our friend Brian has been hosting web sites that have been very important to the trivia community for many years.  One of them he has hosted for almost 12 years, the other for over five years.  Without charge, he has given top-notch uptime and services, personal support, and has even written a number of custom scripts and other functions.  All these years, has paid out of his own pocket to keep things going.  Now he has fallen on hard times--a period of unemployment, resulting in unpaid server bills and outages.  The good news is, Brian is getting back on his feet with a new job.

Donating will achieve three things--
1--bring one popular and important web site back immediately by paying an outstanding server bill.
2--recompense one community member who paid the last monthly server bill out of his own pocket.
3--provide Brian with a little extra cushion to keep his server up.

After GoFundMe takes its fee, the presently unpaid server bill is paid, and the last month's server bill is repaid, all additional money will go to Brian.

If you decide to donate, do it out of thanks for all that Brian has done for the trivia community for many years without asking for much in the way of reward.  Trust me, he has done a lot.

Wow! In less than a day the campaign has reached 85% of its goal. Appreciation goes out to all who have contributed, as well as to the donors who will polish off the campaign. Due to the generosity on display here, Brian's overdue server bills have been paid and the server is live again.

This world is better for the work you've been doing and continue to do. I know it's not easy, and you should be making serious bank for keeping this stuff going, but until then, I hope this small amount helps. See you at TCONA?

The JBoard and J-Archive are very valuable resources and were very helpful in my studies for Jeopardy! Thank you for your work on these sites.
