Outage continues…

I’m slightly disadvantaged in my attempts to get Slugger back up and working in that I’m in London today, primarily to give a talk about blogging and Web 2.0 to an international NGO. I have had a few generous offers of help, and am confident we can get back fairly quickly. Thanks to both Joe (a very regular donor to Slugger) and John for their kind help. It is much appreciated.

Donate to keep Slugger lit!

For over 20 years, Slugger has been an independent place for debate and new ideas. We have published over 40,000 posts and over one and a half million comments on the site. Each month we have over 70,000 readers. All this we have accomplished with only volunteers we have never had any paid staff.

Slugger does not receive any funding, and we respect our readers, so we will never run intrusive ads or sponsored posts. Instead, we are reader-supported. Help us keep Slugger independent by becoming a friend of Slugger.

While we run a tight ship and no one gets paid to write, we need money to help us cover our costs.

If you like what we do, we are asking you to consider giving a monthly donation of any amount, or you can give a one-off donation. Any amount is appreciated.

  1. I can’t be bothered signing in and having to remember another bloody password, I’m a regular contributor to Slugger and to prove it – when you do finally get the site back up & running, can you once & for all sort out the problem with the security word at the bottom of the screen, anytime I try to post a comment it tells me I haven’t entered the word exactly as it appears in the box, even though I bloody well have, and it takes about 4 attempts before it will accept what I have typed.

  2. thanks kathrine.

    annon, I’m interested in that problem. when we get back, I’ll open a thread on it. It’s not one I’ve had myself for a while. But we should try to get to the bottom of it.

    and the beat goes on…..


    PG&E just gave me back thirty-five bucks for the poor service during the 110F weather last summer that cause the blackouts.

    Just wondering …..
