I'm afraid Jamie is even busier than I am (he always is at this time of year when the rugby season in Australia is really kicking off), and the reality is, if we want to run a proper website on a better server ... "show me the money"!
Ladies and gentlemen of the F1 Rejects forums, I am sure that most of you have noticed the problems the site (and especially the forum) has encountered in the past few weeks. Not only has it become a security threat because of some nasty hackers, the general reliability of the site has gone down as well. Connection timeouts have become more and more frequent, sometimes for a long period of time. And as the comment by Enoch above states, while the former problem can (hopefully) be rectified when Jamie finds enough time, the latter can't unless Jamie and Enoch suddenly win in a lottery or something.
Which brings us to my actual point of this post: how many of you would be willing to donate money, if even very minor sums, to make sure that the site lives long and prospers on a proper server? It would have to be much (only a few €/£/$ once in a few months), especially if a lot of people are willing to donate. The technical side of it shouldn't be a problem, as based on what I've read the PayPal Donate system is very effective, secure and easy to put on the website. Of course, it all comes down to J&E if they want to put his on their site in the first place.
