As of midnight on the morning of March 1, the credit card processing company we use upgraded their systems software and now our system is incompatible with theirs. I'm not a systems tech so can't sufficiently explain all the details, but long story short, after lots of recompiling and rebuilding, John has been unable to resolve the incompatibility issues without impacting the rest of our system and doesn't want to risk bringing down our entire system. Kind of risky doing this kind of work in real time under a full load with no way to test.

So he's now in the process of setting up a completely separate secure server, kind of like we used to have prior to our last upgrade. This way he can recompile and rebuild all the systems programs on the separate secure server and resolve the issues without risking or impacting the rest of FR. When it's complete, the "https://freerepublic.com/donate/..." series of links will point to the new secure server for our donation system and the rest of the "https://freerepublic.com/..." links will continue pointing to our current servers and they are also secure servers.

We're praying this can be completed today or very soon so we can get back to normal with our FReepathon. Meanwhile, the special PayPal links I set up work for those using PayPal and, of course, mail-in checks are always greatly appreciated!

Our mailing address: Free Republic - PO Box 9771 - Fresno, CA 93794

UPDATE: I learned yesterday that PayPal also has a Credit/Debit card GUEST Checkout option. No need to login to PayPal. Click the "Pay with Debit or Credit Card" option on the PayPal page that comes up after you click the "Pay Now" button below on our page.

Thank you all very much for bearing with us and for your continuing support!

We're now over 83% and will be closing in on the YELLOW soon (less than $6k to go for that) and then we'll be on the homestretch. Woo hoo!!

If I haven't lost count we now have 35 new monthlies and we've received 156 "300 Club" donations of $100 or more so far this quarter!

Thank you all very much and let's continue working to Make America Great Again!

God bless.

I am very wary of any type of electronic payment transfer these days, so I just mailed a check.
