I think this is the end of the road for HornetsPlanet... I'm sad to say that despite good intentions, life has got the best of me and I can't really put the tine or money into this site and community that it deserves.
My thoughts in a nutshell:
- This site really needs an overhaul, but work and family responsibilities has kept me from being able to dig in and get tat done.
- Hosting prices have gone up, and although I'm sure some of you would be willing to help, I really, really, really hate asking for money.
- Speaking of money, I'm about 4 months away from having 2 kids in college, which will be the most expensive year of my life right in the middle of a pandemic/recession/maybe-depression with possibilities of 20% unemployment.
- Speaking of unemployment, my wife's job is looking precarious with this economic downturn... Did I mention that this is going to be the most expensive year during my existence on this earth?
I truly hate to shut things down. But right now it seems like the responsible thing to do.
