Ads stink! We get it.

Ads stink and distract from the user experience. I despise them as much (if not more) than you, but they help us pay the bills here at so they became a necessary evil.

Many of you have donated to our cause in the past and continue to donate! We greatly appreciate everyone's support both small and large, and it helps immensely! But it simply wasn't enough. The answer was to deploy Ads to help offset our personal costs in running and maintaining this site.

Numerous notable colleagues and inspectors have expressed over the years that we should turn the site into a "members only" access, and offered a variety of membership fee suggestions (typically far greater than the fees we currently ask). So... In an effort to improve the user experience without negatively impacting revenue from the ads, we have taken some of their advice and deployed ad-free membership options. We believe these to be very reasonable and inexpensive membership fees, and are continuing to add content and numerous exclusive benefits to the membership levels that will more than offset the meager fee.

Below you will find our current offerings of annual or monthly membership. Joining either paid level (monthly or annual) will have the benefit, among many other benefits we are rolling out, of removing ads from the pages while you are logged in.

If you are an existing current annual, monthly, or weekly donor to the site, please contact us for ad-free membership options.

Just click on one of the options below to start the registration process. And as always, Thank You so much for your patronage!!!

If you experience issues trying to register or login,  just simply contact us and we'll get it straightened out for you!
