Actually seems like a good enough deal thats 10 years of net profit @59k. Hard to imagine it doing less than that in a normal economy. I would buy it but I am about 598k short. Can ya'all spare a couple bucks.The price is not bad, just $599K seems reasonable.
Good luck to Jim and family as they enter semi-retirement.
Or change to a different hosting company. You can host a web site for $100 or less per year. I own two sites one of which is a photography forum. Not a large forum like this but my members do have a live chat room and their own photo albums which takes up a bit of server space and bandwidth. Could easily handle the traffic like on here and space again for less than $100 yr.It's probably gonna come up but servers and bandwidth are expensive. Would it be worth it to subscribe to the website?
Personally, I'd pay $15 or $20 a year to be part of this website - something in the realm of a magazine subscription. It's been too good a resource to let flounder due to lack of funds.
