Thanks! I'm glad it all worked out. We certainly couldn't have done it without the support and generosity of Tham's friends!
Me, too! If I may say so, we did good!

Bless you both for doing this.
Thanks for the kind words. We're glad it worked out so well!
It's really moving how many generous friends she had.
wow, fast! that's terrific.
PS: There are programs that download entire websites for reupload elsewhere. As long as O&E has the bandwidth left (you can contact her host and explain the situation -- maybe arrange donations for bandwidth, if it's lacking) the entire web site can be recreated on a mirror host that another person can control the financial status of.
I'll ask around.
That's a good possibility, although from what I understand, the Web master may not keep the hosting site itself on-line for much longer. Do let us know, if you get additional information on your idea, please. lunaris1013
made a lovely offer
, but we don't yet know the specifics of that either.
That's terrific! You all deserve much credit for your work and dedication.
We're just delighted that it went so smoothly.
wow...it happened so fast I didn't even get a chance to contribute. I'd still be happy to kick some in for keeping the website alive, if that turns out to be useful.
Just the thought means something, Joan. =) We will let you (and the community) know about our efforts for the O & E site, though.
Anyone who is interested can also see the LJ Shopping Cart page showing our completed purchase by clicking on the image below.
thanks to you both for all the hard work making this possible!!
while her LJ seems to be safe now, i am still going to donate, i am sure, you both know, what to do best with the money in a way, that tham would want.
We were glad to do it, and we appreciate your kindness. =)
i just send my donation through paypal, i hope you received it!
Not that this is news to you, but I share in your delight and gratitude. =D
Also, I forgot to remind you and/or point out to everyone else: being able to buy during the first 36 hours of the Permanent account sale also meant that $25 of our purchase price went to the charities that LJ selected (RAINN, Witness, the EFF, and Creative Commons).
