so i was reading this over at mena’s blog and i got to thinking. you know that MT is provided free of charge to personal websites, with donations optional. well, ben and mena have done wonderful things for this blogging community, and at this point their server traffic is so heavy that they’re having occasional CGI outages, and are looking at upgrading their hosting — that’s expensive.
i cannot donate at this time, and i feel bad about that. but for all you folks for whom i’ve installed copies of MT (and there are a lot of you!) i’m asking you to consider sending along a little cash to the awesome coding team that’s made all this bloggy goodness possible.
and did you know, if you donate $20 or more, that you will receive a ‘recently updated’ key, and when you post, your blog will be listed on the recently posted list on the front page of MT? in fact, for each $20 donated, you’ll receive a key (if you’re running multiple blogs, for instance).
i think it just rocks that such a great tool is free, for those who are in too much of a bind to donate. but if you’re able to do this for ben and mena, go here.
