Become a financial contributor:
OldVersion.com uses over 11TB of bandwidth per month and we are rapidly growing. Our hosting bills are able to be covered through advertising revenue at the moment, so we are not at a critical level of asking for financial contributions. However, any financial contributions would be greatly appreciated and would go to financing the development of our site.
