As an ever growing website traffic dictates, more users means more bandwidth, and larger servers. Rotarynews.com has purchased space at a leading co-location service provider in order to better serve you. However, this purchase has quadrupled the running cost for RotaryNews. In order to offset this cost, we ask a few things.
We've setup a raffle website, at Raffle.rotarynews.com. Over the years, we've collected a number of things, in duplicate. This is a good chance for us to let some of it go to other Rotary Enthusiasts, and to generate money for our site. The first raffles will be for a "Magic RX-8 Ball," $1 for a ticket. Next is "RX-7 Magazine no. 11" from Japan. This one covers SevenStock4. Tickets for this are $2 ea. And last is a SevenStock 4 Package, with Tshirt, poster, CDRom, and some other goodies. Tickets are $1.
Another thing you can do is buy a TextAd. TextAds are a simple, polite, and inexpensive alternative to banners and other online advertising. For $10 you get 2500 guarenteed views of your ad. No monthly fees, no hit calculations, just $10 for 2500 ads. Advertise your rotary website, sell your car, or whatever you want to advertise to this target market of rotary enthusiasts. Visit our TextAds Information pages for more info!
You can always visit our new an improved store front at Store.rotarynews.com. We have SevenStock memorbilia, Toys and more!
Lastly, if you would like to get your rotary shop on-line, we provide web hosting starting at $10 a month. Please Contact me for further rate quotes, and information.
We will start migrating this site over to the new server after SevenStock. We are pondering not moving the threads and related information over, since the website code for the threads is over 4 years old, has some security issues, and runs on an older version of the Perl programming language that the new server doesn't support.
Lastly, if you would like a preview of things to come, please check out rotarynews.com There are some minor cosmetic changes, but the middleware and database are completely re-written. Some links might now work, so be carefull!
