    The End of an Era and a New Beginning

    Thank you all for your kind words. It has been a labor of love for a good chunk of my life. I most definitely did NOT get very much $$ for the handover of the site, but while $$ is a huge factor, it wasn't my number one wish. It was more important to me to have the resource remain in some...

    Donations Requested

    Thank you everyone. My apologies for not being a better communicator regarding the needs of running this site. Life is so hectic that I am sorry to say that by the time I am able to think about the wellbeing of this community, I am pretty much tapped out. Is anyone here interested in...

    The J Meister is back! Yes, the original days are the memories that keep my will to keep this site alive going. The Fab 5 are forever engrained in history. Not to mention the 10's of thousands we have helped since those early days.

    Friends.. Amy's post really illustrated for me what we need the most. We need YOU! A network of ambassadors going out there rattling the trees looking for companies who are willing to continue this place with us. Companies, Dr's Offices, Equipment Providers, and Non-Profit organizations whoa...

    Amy. Thank you so much for your contribution. Alere purchased the company who VR.org teamed up with in the very beginning to get this site started. After that acquisition, I tried for years to get them to sponsor us, but they were simply too big to care. Maybe times have changed. The original...

    This comment alone is the reason why I have kept this going for 20 years and I recognize that it is something that needs to carry on.

    Thanks you everyone who has chimed in. The monthly costs are as I mentioned above, which is for the hosting of the site. The vBulletin software was purchased years ago and while it isn't the greatest, it doesn't have ongoing costs. Only the hosting, which runs on a "virtual" private server...

    I have had several offers in the past to purchase the site, but simply cannot entertain those offers due to the fact that they would always include the database of members. We have always & will always respect the privacy of those who have registered here in the past. Just the same, the posts...

    Considering the end of VR.org - Looking for your thoughts

    The ValveReplacement.org forum has been alive for almost 20 years. The things that has kept us alive for so long have been Personal sacrifice of my wife and I, donations from many current and past members and mostly, a site sponsor. Well we no longer have a site sponsor, and my wife and I have...

    The old members

    The "old days" made this what it is today. The decrease in activity is likely directly linked to my inability to put as much time into the site as I would like. Still, it continues to live on and benefit the lives of thousands in spite of my inattention. And that thanks goes to ALL OF YOU...

    I think it has something to do with the need that we are a few updates behind. I’m going to look into what the changes are in the latest patch and work to get it installed. Maybe this week if I can find the time.
