dilandauluv5,

There is a server for folks who sign up for the monthly donation plan, along with a few other small perks. If you see the simoleon (however it's spelled) sign under someone's name, that means they joined one of the automated monthly donation plans.

I'm quite happy to offer my services.
But i would like the following contract:

1. I use my own lump hammer.
2. I have 55 minute long tea breaks in between work.
3. I will receive 3000000 simoleans per hammer blow.


sorry i couldnt resist being silly.

but thanks for the good news.


Please dont upload my creations to paysites.
But please feel free to use

Wonderful news Delphy! Thank you and your staff for all the hard work you do for this site. And a big thank you to all the kind donators without which new servers wouldn't have been possible.

Excellent! Thanx so much for all that you and yours do for the site. It is the pinnacle that all of the other sites try to copy. I know how hard it is to keep up and how hard it gets when so many are whining - my pet peeve with people that are old enough to know better. Any way we'll be cheering you on this weekend!

kortz2000, regarding QX links - no, they wont be turned on during the stress testing since QX uses a seperate server.

auntekay, I'd like to point out that 1) The US is not a true democracy 2) this is a private website and 3) it's a benevolent dictatorship. :P

Edit: I'm still waiting on the second server to be deployed, so no testing today at any rate...

How does it continue though? I was forced to listen to this for at least half an hour not long ago .. thought it would be etched into my brain for life, but now i can't remember it anymore and it's driving me nuts. A woodchuck would chop as much would as a .. something .. could, if .. something something .. ?

I heard it as 'a woodchuck would chuck as much as he could chuck, if a wood chuck could chuck wood.'

Yep, true ! Time, patience, the more we have to wait and the more we will be happy with the achievment. :p

Thank you Delphy and the others, it's a wonderful work to managing this site !

Edit : Near 1 AM, after a little downtime, there is a great amelioration on the downloads (chii server as I have see). Continue the good work please.

Lol...."the other ones" hehe....I'm so happy that you raised enough money so quickly, it was smart to put the donation link as the bulletin.

HAHA!! Yeah....I download all this stuff for my sims, and never play the game!

And Delphy, take all the time you need....I gotta get the house clean anyways.

And hey....I know I haven't posted much until now, though I've been a member for like a year, but I'm having a baby!!!

Sorry for the thread jack Delphy....I'm telling everyone, haha. I already have a 2 1/2 year old, and I am 8 weeks pregnant with my second child. YAY!!

The nesting instinct is kicking in early in this pregnancy, lol....I feel like I must clean everything. And organize. And rearrange.

eirate - when that gets announced. We've been waiting on servers, and I'm not sure if Delphy is going to try and address some of the qx issues before bringing it back or not.
