It was somewhat akin to having a spotlight shone upon you in a crowded theatre at the precise moment your trousers chose to fall down, and your emotions decided to play up.
You see... The big news is this: Digitiser 2000 has reached its first Patreon funding milestone! That means I can justify at least some of the time this site takes to maintain, write, and so on and so forth. For now, thanks to your generosity, you're guaranteed to get more of all of this, whatever "this" is. In short: we're officially back.
My day job is ramping up again a bit, but hopefully - if donations keep going, and we can find other funding options - Digi 2000 is going to be a legitimate ongoing concern, one that becomes a bit more than just a hobby-with-benefits...
See the Patreon page for more details of the next milestone goal. If we reach it before the end of the month I will promise here and now that The Real Turner The Worm will vomit once again. And it will be spectacular.
Frankly, I'm running out of superlatives, and different ways to thank you all, but - with the greatest, most sincere sincerity - I'm utterly blown away, and can't express enough gratitude for all your pledging, plugging, and general niceness. I dunno what I ever did to deserve all this - it's utterly surreal - but I'm utterly grateful for it.
Bear with us as we move forwards; not so long ago I never would've believed this was possible, and at the moment there are only really a couple of us working on the site - I'm generating most of the creative, word-y, things and graphics, but behind the scenes there's a lot of replying to messages, admin, and planning stuff going on.
We now know where we want to go with all this long term (I promise you'll be happy)... now it's just a question of making it happen.
We might not be up there with the Jim Sterlings of this world, but because so many of you have already thrown your support behind Digitiser 2000, and - frankly - become part of the team/family/squad, we're off to one massive Rodney of a start.
One final time: THANK YOU.
