    I venture to say the utilities and the periphial expenses are $2,000.00 per month but what do you figure for labor ? Now thats...............priceless ! ! Regards.........Gene W.

    I have checked all the answers and no one fell within $10 of what it cost last month. One user was vert close to getting this though... I will however be sending Elliott and his family T-shirts from everyone here's behalf.

    Thank you for participating and the kind words of support. It is indeed very expensive to run this site, definately a nice cruise each month.. not including labor, annual contracts, side projects, and out of pocket expenses. Its worth it though as Its been allot of fun.

    Please do business with our sponsors and let them know how much you appreciate their support.

    They include - Skyscraper Tours - <http://www.skyscrapertours.com>
    Cruise Quick - <http://www.cruisequick.com>

    Kudos for the T-Shirts to Elliott's family.........so, now.....John.....you're not going to tell us how much it costs per month??? If it were known, maybe there would be less griping....and we would all be a little more thankful!!!!!!

    I don't think it is fair for me, nor anyone else to take a guess at how much running this board costs John each month.
    In the past, I've often expressed to John that I would become a paying member, just to enjoy the privilege of this board.
    Having said that, if John so chooses to make this a pay for board, I would gladly join. I really don't like the pop ups, but if it funds the board, then so beit. We'll just have to get used to it.

    John,
    Thanks for sending the prize to Elliott.
    As for the cost, that is for you and you alone. Griping will continue whether it is $1.00 or $1 million. Can't please everyone. When posters bash this site on other sites, look at it as a compliment. Jealousy has many faces.

    John! Not fair, give us a name, who was the closest? Even though Elliott himself didn't guess, he is still a winner in our eyes!

    I missed all this excitement! Glad to hear you are sending Elliott and his family the tees! Way to go John. And I must agree, you do a heck of a job and a few banners and pop ups are OK by me!

    I am overwhelmed by everyones generiousity in wanting to give Elliott the shirt. He gets a big kick out of the attention everyone shows him. I too appreciate your thoughtfulness.
    Thank you very much John for your generous offer. I love this site even though I have never had the joy of going on a cruise. I have wanted the shirts but as you know our finances are poor at best right now. We will wear them proudly. You have made a family very happy today!
    God Bless you and all the fine members of this board.
    Love
    The Aldrich Family
