This website started in 1997. In 2005 I finally was able to buy my own domain (www.thetoweringinferno.info), thanks to a few loyal fans who donated $10 and became VIP-members. I did a redecoration of the site, but I never liked it. At the start of 2006 I made the whole website betterlooking and have fixed all bad links! It's in tiptop shape again. Last job to do is the pictures-section - but I just can't find the time.
Support me please, by becoming a VIP-member for only $10, so I can keep this domain.
You'll get to see some unique stuff then.
Or just donate 1 or 2 dollars. You can also click on several ads on the website.

Lots and lots of advertising on several pages. I'm sorry guys. This site costs me about $100 a year. 1st year was paid by loyal fans, 2nd by me. But I'm making this for all of you. The VIP membership was no succes, nor was the shop. So this is my final attempt to receiving some money. If this doesn't work, I'll have to close down (damn).
