Thought I would visit my old, reliable KHOU weather forums and found that I had missed a lot! My old user ID and password still worked! Just donated what I could to help things along. It's great to see a lot of the old familiar faces here like srain, Andrew, etc. Thank you for the passion y'all show for our local weather.

Hey folks. We need your help keeping Wx Infinity running. Funds are getting low and we are operating on about 2 months worth of hosting fees ($60 per month). If you can contribute any amount, it will help us keep our Weather Community going. I have exchanged emails with Andrew regarding the security certificate. He stated he would address this soon. Thank you to all that have contributed in the past. It is greatly appreciated!

I sadly can't donate, but I did let S2K know about what's going on here.

I’d like to donate, but I’m concerned about the warning of information being compromised due to the certificate issue. Any way around that?

Ditto msc7363. I’m happy to contribute but not online without a valid security certificate. Can we send you a check or ? to get you up to date? Does WX Infinity have a snail mail address?

The certificate is ONLY for the SSL cert of this website. It has zero to do with submitting payments to support the site. No worries.

Count on my donation coming through this morning.

Hey everyone, my apologies for the tardiness in updating the SSL certificate. It should be updated now. I will try to make sure I reissue the certificate next year before it expires. As Grimes mentioned we never collect any payment details on this site and the only information we collect is your email when you sign up. We let the pros over at PayPal secure the data and deal with the important information. With that said, I do apologize again because it was my responsibility and I did not keep up with that. I know we have a couple of regulars who often keep this forum afloat with their donations and I can't thank you and everyone else who has donated over the years enough. Your help and contributions have ensured we can provide an environment to talk about weather across SE Texas, Texas, and the U.S.A. For transparency purposes, we currently have $473.46 in the account and received $328.21 over the last 7 days alone. That is amazing! At $54/month in server costs that will make sure we are good for the next nine months. Thank you so so so much!
