!$40As indicated, the
is the best value because notonly does it never expire (so you never pay again, even if we have to raisethe fee) but you get access to the Samurai's coveted repair manual stash.I'm adding new manuals all the time and the file collection continues togrow.We're busting at the seams!As you probably guessed, the repairmanual stash uses a huge amount of disk space for storage and bandwidthto serve all those files.For now, my costs for this are stable and I don'tanticipate having to raise the fee.Hopefully this won't change too muchwhen the mis-named Dollar (really just a Federal Reserve Note, read theback of one) finally takes the nose-dive that everyone's expecting (more onthat later).I've had several people email me complaining that full access to the forumshould be free, "... 'cuz it's on the innernet, an' all."And I thought tomyself, I said, "Self, that's a ding-dang good line, I'm gonna try that one onmy web host and file service provider and my other site-related vendors thatI use to keep my sites running."Well, guess what?They all told me to go jump in a frozen New Hampshire lake.And I guess my time running the site(which is considerable) shouldn't count for anything either.
