22 years of Hot Boots!
From the Hot Boots Treasurer, Chris Elliott
Dear fellow Booted Men,
Hotboots.com has been around for 22 years now! The website was created by Larry Kenney's vision that booted men need not feel odd and/or misunderstood because of their passion for boots. As we have seen over the years, it has been a vehicle where booted men have come together, found each other, where we celebrate our affection for boots, and empower and encourage such passion. So many of us are indebted to Larry because his website helped us accept who we are: proud boot men from around the world, free to come together, celebrate each other and to pursue our fetish interests openly without fear of retribution or ridicule. I, for one, want other fellow Booted Men to have the Hot Boots site for many years to come.
The foundations for our main site have been solid and secure for over 20 years, but if we were to continue having a presence, modern web browsers increasingly required that we take steps to accommodate new technology which have a strong preference for sites with SSL certification. To do this, we were required to move our site to a newer server. Now, one can access our secure site by typing https://hotboots.com instead of the older http. Our older software for message boards running things like Boots Online (BOL) and Boots For Sale (BFS), were incompatible with the newer servers. Now, thanks to Larry, we've got a new system for BOL and BFS which is working well.
While the site is a labor of love for all of the the Trustees and Moderators, it costs money to keep the site running. Additionally, if we are to continue keeping the site compatible for the future, we want to have funding so that we can obtain technical assistance when necessary. If you've enjoyed the Hotboots.com website, and our Facebook group, we'd kindly ask your consideration of making a contribution. This message comes to you with the full support of the Officers and Trustees of Hotboots.com. We thank you in advance for your support!
