OLUG is funded primarily by the officiates in both soft and hard costs. Soft costs are easy to cover, being that the majority of this is simply time and effort put forth to coordinate meetings and all other logistics. Hard costs are the harder part (pun intended), especially in these rough financial times. These are items like monthly bills for hosting the OLUG server and services it provides. From the begining, this has always fell on donations gratiously made by either our employers or through connections we have made in this area. Today, the OLUG server is a virtual node hosted by linode (http://www.linode.com) and the monthly cost has been coming out of our pocket directly. We appreciate any and all donations you make to help offset this cost. If you would like to donate, please use the paypal button below!
