If anyone knows anyone who needs a speed limit database, now is the time to step up!

This is probably the end of Wikispeedia.
We lost our monthly sponsor, TSO Mobile. They have keep us alive for years and queried us heavily! Without them we would have been gone years ago.

Here are our financials. Someone please step up!

INPUT: We got (did get) $100 per month from TSO Mobile in Miami via paypal reoccurring monthly.
OUTPUT per month: $27 Amazon database
OUTPUT per year:  ~$50 for nearlyfreespeech.net website hosting and mysql instance.
OUTPUT per month: $40 distributed amoung all monthly contributors including Alirio in Columbia.
OUTPUT per month: $7.95 paid to volunteermatch.org.
Our paypal balance is $138.75, Our First Tennessee balance is $112.64.
I took extra money and spent it on freelancer.com to build two apps:
Opencv sign identifiers for apps. Opencv vehicle identifiers for apps. They are in the source code on gitlab.
More details available on request. We will start paring down our services immediately.

I lament on our utility. We are the “Duck Duck Go” of databases. Our data comes from High School Seniors wanting service hours. They contribute from the roads where they get speeding tickets, not like company killer, “Google Maps”, which mainly gets highway updates from “The Waze”.
We have been operating with no overhead ( $0 ) since 2005. I have never received a dime. My goal was of course to stay relevant, but also to stick it to the speeding industry.
We will be around for a few more months. We provided snapshots and updates, getting better and better every year,  until 5/2/2019
