I am doing my best to share this site/blog , just because of us first thing first, and then , because of myself and kiddo who were caught in the very same trap :forced adoptions and child abuse =overseas!And I will never give up!I owe to us all , I guess...

Hello Rob,


I was asked about possibly providing hosting for


Can you give me some details on the site?  Like what is the backend

software/database, how much storage is needed, how much bandwidth per

month is needed, things like that.

I have sent the following Answer

Hi, Brielle

Who asked?

Sorry I'm not at all technical?
Just used Ning Network Archiver to back up all the data on the website Total file size is
493,593,811 bytes
I find that had to believe??

I don't believe that I have backed it up???

Currently using Ning Plus Renewal fee is £165.95 for the year; I just don't have that sort of Money

If you want to have a look around I can admit you to the site?

One of the things that I like is it is Private and only the First page is visible; only Members can see further and post.

Google does pick up stuff so it is highly visible to search engines too.

As the Shame of Ireland is my creation; Charging Members would take the project out of my Control?

Ideally free Hosting?

ThanX for getting in touch with me!

Wish I could be more help!

Take Care

Dont have paypal  either, but will gladly send a cheque to your address Rob, if you let us have it, between that, pay pal, money orders, pidgeon, whatever, im sure many folk will be happy to get their donations to you, and allow our site to continue, steered and assisted by your able self. Many thanks , hopefully soon all be sorted.

As far as I am aware Pay Pal will accept Credit Cards Debit Cards etc. i.e. Visa MasterCard

Hopefully it won't come to that

Could also do it through a Sort Code and Bank Account

I have a Dormant Building Society Account that I could use solely for that purpose.

Then there would be Transparency.

It was never my intention to ask for Money for this.

Thank you All for your words of encouragement and Support!!
