"there is a problem with this website's security certificate"etc,
when I try to show the message as an attachment, the message is...
" Error
File too large: IMG_0348.JPG"

I was getting the same message up until a few minutes ago.

Not sure what it was.

I can help!

There's a bit of activity behind the scenes here. The Denver Letterheads helped pay for this site for quite a few years, but their bank account finally went to $0. I have been busy with my photography and touring business and was having trouble coming up with the time and money to keep the site open.

Danny Baronian volunteered to take over the site as the primary contact which includes paying for the two domain registrations and web hosting package. We opted to try to save the $100 cost on the SSL certificate, but that decision caused the recent issues. Apparently, the last time we paid to have some custom code applied, the SSL was hard coded into the site, meaning we either had to pay for the SSL or pay to have someone go back into the code to remove the problems. That would cost much more than $100.

Now that we know the issue, it shouldn't be a problem.

With all of that said, I hate to see Danny having to foot the bill for the entire site. He already donates a lot of time answering emails and helping people get logged in.

So, if you like this site and can afford to kick in $50 or $100 to keep it running another year, please contact Danny.

Hey it's back.
I did message Mike via facebook about it so maybe he saw the message, who knows.
I am happy to chip in $50.
How do I contact Danny, through a pm?
