Hey folks.

As some of you might have noticed, I have added a PayPal donations button in the News Box up above.  This server has a very expensive upkeep due to our bandwidth requirements, and the bill is starting to get a bit out of hand for the couple of us who have been pooling our funds for the last 15 months.  Therefore, anything that people could contribute would be very much appreciated and help us keep these boards up and the music flowin for you guys in the long run. 

There is no profit being made with this! 

Every dollar donated is going to be used solely for paying our monthly server bill, which is currently about $90/month.  I don't think we can offer you a tax credit or anything, but know that your money is being used to help spread the music. 

There is no minimum suggested donation, but if you can spare $1, $5, etc..., we'd be forever grateful  :mrgreen:

Thanks,
Dan (for the entire week4paug.net server t34m)

sorry for the cross-post, i'm just not sure if everyone reads the Public Service Announcements section and figured some of you might be interested in this...

and a big thanks to everyone who has donated so far, you know who you are!  (maybe we'll be able to offer you some sort of custom badges if you donate, i'll see if that's feasible)

But, I don't think our fans do happily lap it up, I think they go online and talk about how it was a bad show.
