Intermittent interruption to services

Post by Dinkum »

I have been having a little chat with the hamsters that keep the lights on around here and they are not happy. It seems that a few people have been sharing the same link over and over again, but it is not having the desired effect. The hamsters are complaining that they have to run around faster and faster to keep the servers going with all these external links and no one is responding. They have asked me if they can ballot to strike. After much woofing from Rupert and fierce objections from Watson, I have agreed that the hamsters can ballot and go on strike.

They have decided to stop their endless running for an hour every evening starting today. From 18:00 to 19:00, they are going to put their little feet up and have a cuppa. =))

However, we have agreed that if we get at least one donation before 18:00 every day, they have to keep running. It doesn't matter what the amount is, they just want to get to £1000 and stop the continuous linking to the external sites and make sure that Kate gets all her camping equipment ordered with Santa. She will even have a Schnauzer Calendar to keep her company in her tent. :ymdevil:

To keep the lights on, visit http://www.justgiving.com/Schnauzer-Forum" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; and make a small contribution. Alternatively pick up your mobile and text SCHN77 and an amount of £1, £2, £3, £4, £5 or £10 to 70070. It's dead easy. :-B

I offer my advice freely, but I am not an expert, breeder, groomer or behaviourist. It is simply my experience of raising pups in a way that seems to make sense.

I conclude from those smileys that Kate feels frustrated that some people haven't sponsored her ... Tearing her hair out trying to think how to get people to sponsor her.... And she can't watch as she's so excited to see the total rise :D :D

Don't forget to gift aid too, it's very easy by txt. Do the donation, wait for the reply and send the details required if you are a tax payer. :D
