Don't think so Lee, Chris would know better, but I would very much doubt whether it covered it's cost, particularly if you remove the generosity of one particular member.

The raffle did not cover the cost of the DVD player , and the idea of the raffle was to try generate some cash to help support the site.

I may run more raffles but not at the moment.

Well I've got a couple of Skystar 2 DVB cards that we can use, they only retail at £50 or so, but they are now "very useful" :)

1. Sat related prize
2. PC related prize
3. Err one of those electric scooters (not really)
4. Oh now then, one years subscription to Horse and Hounds.....

Shit, anything man. Any prize is good as long as we get a feel for from members what's on their wish list....

Chris..... I know you won't say how much it costs to run this site, but how much would need to cover the running of the site for one year roughly. Would it be 100s......1000s so just two answers to choose from and we will have some idea of what it takes.

B.T.W. count me in for the next raffle and why not make it £20 a go, but not so close to Xmas this time.

And hurry Because I will be on the dole soon, after 20 years of putting the fig in the figroll it's time to move on.

Hi Razor, all i will say is that the web site runs on a cobalt RaQ 4 512 server so with a little investigation you can narrow it down for yourself. I've tried running it on the smaller RaQ servers but the additional bandwidth costs each month end up costing me more than this server.

Not sure if people would pay £20 for a raffle ticket, i think that one of the reasons the last raffle did so poor was the ticket price of £5.

I do appreciate all donations to help support the site , but the main reason i provide this site is to give me the opportunity to play with web design, HTML , CGI, PHP & MySQL.
