WPC Testimonials/Feedback ForumWhat I've discovered about retirement in the 21st century

I retired back about 5 years ago and I love the fact that I cannot be fired anymore, but this is what I find disturbing about it somewhat so far...

It's a struggle to survive financially let alone prosper in today's economy, even though I make a little supplemental revenue to aid my retirement check once a month, I find that paying the rent, keeping the power on, this primo internet connection turned on, car insurance paid, the dog fed, and other monthly creditors paid is more than I make and still rely on food pantries to keep food for two people in the house, so any contributions here are surely treasured and as I said previously elsewhere in a post or two, the majority of what I make here at the site goes right into making sure we stay online without interruption, been doing quite well at it considering my original domain name has remained active and such since 2006... do a Google search for "knoxville webmaster services forum" OR for leisure surfing accomplishment "knoxville gaming forum" and see that at least the search engines know we are here in our little corner of the web... you can also verify the age of my domain by doing a "whois" lookup on my domain name, but I will say that I have restarted the site a couple times since then with a clean database, so that's why the intrinsic statistical page available for all to view here does not go back that far...

There's one thing about it though, looking back I am content that life has been great and I will continue to be the chipper optimistic me because the good guys ALWAYS win in the long game. I can say that with ease in the sense that I know that I am not alone in the financial struggle and there are signs that things will get better sooner than most folks think. One of my original goals when I started working with SMF software was to purchase a used IBM iSeries minicomputer with original licensed software from IBM installed or on disk for the purpose of developing a bridge for installing SMF on IBM servers using DB2 databases and Sequel SQL instead of MySQL. You can help bring that goal current by contributing!!

Making a PayPal contribution is a breeze here, EVEN GUESTS can just click on the little coffee cup icon (heck of a lot cheaper than starbucks too lol) anywhere my profile info is displayed and it will let you make a PayPal© payment to my account... and also consider becoming a charter member.

Get enough coming in to cover it and I may buy YOU a cup of coffee!!         :-*

Best Regards,
