Po Ass Mofos
If you've come to this site in the past few weeks, you've probably seen Tripod's "this site will be back in 2 hours" page, and you've then cursed and spat and thrown things around the room. Here's what we think of Tripod right now:

Now, there's no sense in you breaking all your nice stuff, so here's why thefade keeps going down: we don't have enough bandwidth to stay online when alot of people come knockin at the door. Why not just get more bandwidth, you say? Because bandwidth is expensive and thefade is a po ass mofo run by a po ass college student. Herein lies the problem.

The solution, unfortunately, lies in begging (not the fun kind of begging unfortunately). Right now, this site is alotted 5.5 gigs of bandwidth per month from Tripod. According to Tripod, thefade has used up the equivalent of 8.3 gigs so far this month. So, to keep it online all the time, Tripod would need to be paid for that extra bandwidth. The total cost of an extra 2.5 gigs of bandwidth per month is $24.75 (US dollars).

Since this is kinda expensive, thefade may be changing its host sometime in the near future, but for now, this is the only way to keep it up all the time.

So, if you just fished some change out from between the couch cushions and you don't mind donating some of it, it would be greatly appreciated. This site will always be free to you. You will never, EVER be required to pay for it. But unless some extra bandwidth can be aquired or the traffic slows down, it will continue to be unavailable from time to time.

Thanks to everyone who has ever come here ever. This site would not be here if not for you.

Your friendly broke-ass college student,
