[Summary to be added once paypal sends me the report, but donations for the year are close to covering server costs so far.]

In addition to the donation option to support the site, we will be offering t-shirts again. Anyone who has donated this year may apply that donation toward up to half the cost of 1 t-shirt. (Probably in the $20 range?)

T-Bone will be coordinate a design contest, and will be working with a local guy to get them printed before shipping. Payment will be similar to previous merch offerings, though I may expand to some non-Paypal option. We'll open up pre-orders around the time the shirt design is finalized.

We will also be doing an upgrade and hosting move sometime in the near future, which should reduce the costs of maintaining the site substantially.

Hopefully all of this will be basically done by early October, when baby two (Zoe) arrives!

Another quick update:

Donations got us through July, but have run dry - presumably part of that is the pending t-shirt offering, but if you are able to support the site in advance I can apply that to a future shirt order (up to the cost of one shirt). This is not exactly pre-orders, and I can't promise any particular delivery date yet. But money is tight for us right now with Zoe to arrive in a couple weeks, so thought I would ask. :)
