Assuming it would be legally feasable, if we could get a database dump and a backup of the web root, I would be willing to try moving the site to AWS on a new domain with the 'NN graphics stripped off.

Are there any copyright or liscensing issues in the way?

I've already been looking into it, but don't panic yet. Some news soon.

Can we please set up a Patreon to help pay the bills now? That would be aces.

A Patreon would be complicated. I'll ask some key questions today from ownership.

Thank you... and thanks for everything!

You're out of a gig but are still helping us in the asylum. It's a testament to your character.

Well.

You guys are my people. How could I not? Besides, how would I spread the word otherwise where the staff is going, so you can harangue us in other venues?

Hey, just responding here to keep in the loop.

I'm assuming you mean legal/money-flow complications, Mike? Patreon is pretty simple to get going, and I'd recommend it, or something like it, for future funding models (vs ads).
