More wired than a Roman Internet café

Ning have just announced on their Developer Network that they are terminating their free service - the cut off date has not yet been given, but this will effectively kill Schola, and this site as well. I will, however, convert Schola to a Premium site, if there is no alternative way to keep it alive on Ning. This at present is $10 a month, the new pricing schedule has not been announced.

I am also currently looking into alternatives as a fail safe, and am making arrangements to have Schola archived, just in case things go pear shaped so that at least what exists of the site will be preserved as a record, if we are unable to migrate the site elsewhere......but as things stand, this looks manageable....my first reaction was one of horror....but on reflection, no reason to panic.

So far, we have £40 raised, after a day, so I think Schola will be OK.....who knows, if we raise more than we need, maybe Schola can do something useful, like run an International Latin composition competition, for either Poetry or Prose. I am sure finding competent Judges will not be hard.

Assuming we have to pay $10 a month - Schola is now safe for the coming year, as we have raised £140 so far.

That is excellent, Evan - good for Schola!!! Through your efforts and Ning's technology, it is providing a real service unlike anything else on the Internet right now. I am glad people are willing to chip in to help make sure it will continue! :-)
