Subject: FUNDING CHALLENGE-Help the Mudcat!
From: katlaughing
Date: 17 Feb 00 - 04:52 PM

Max, has given us an amount he needs to get more hardware to keep the SuperSearch going and to keep us from reaching the 503 server disconnect message. I don't knwo about you all, but I have gotten that message several times, today, even when I have been in between threads and I don't like it!**BG** Max, says it is because the site is getting so busy.

Anyway, short term, the need is for $2,000. Long term, $100 per month for several years would be very helpful.

So...I am issuing a challenge to everyone who cares and is able to do this. Each month, whenever is convenient to your finances, come to the site and make a credit card donation of $10 or, send your check in. If even just ten of us did that once per month, every month, there would be the $100.

I know we've talked about this in the past, then we got the auction, but I am hoping now there are enough of us on here that we can get this one off the ground finally.

So, what do you say Mudcatters? Is it worth ten bucks or more to you per month and, if you can afford it, will you take the pledge?

Sincerely,

katlaughing

Ah, LeeJ, we are great, aren't we?!**BG** Well, I just donated my first twice per month $10. For those who are new and may not know, you can click on the fish jumping out of the banjo, scroll down to Max's message and he has a link in there for donations with a secure server and all. It was quick, easy, and painless, plus there is a great big thank you at the end.

LeeJ, I thought about doing one like you said, with competition, but didn't want to embarrass or scare off anyone who may be on a limited income, but Hey! if people post to both we'll get twice as much donated, right?**BG**

Thanks ya'll,

And dig through your garage or attic and find some junk to auction. Doesn't HAVE to be music related, it has to be worth shipping though.

Or buy from one of the suppliers under "Support Mudcat"

Or buy a T shirt.

Or save yer pennies to buy the Mudcat CD when it comes out in the next week or so.

Thanks everyone,

Bert.

DID I hear correctly? I haven't been able to keep up with Mudcat Radio, but if this is so, let the auction begin, Max. I know someone who would be tickled to have a date with you. (Not me - besides being married, PA's too far for dinner.) I'll be happy to bid if you have indeed sunk so low as to offer your 'company' for the 'company'. Part of me hopes it hasn't come to that, though....

Here is an idea...

Would anyone be willing to teach banjo, guitar, autoharp, or voice lessons over the internet using Hearme or some equivalent (PowWow, Firetalk, Excite Voice, even Net Meeting). Some of these programs even support on-line camera's for video links. We could even auction off lessons to help support the Mudcat.

I got to thinking that I know that I'm somewhat musically challenged (tone deaf and got no rhythm, can't spell either). I would love to get pointers, suggestions, etc. on how to improve my playing and singing. I can take constructive critcism (I think), otherwise How Will I get Better? That got me to thinking about the possibilities of using Hear me for other types of things.... Like Lessons.

Imagine, getting an hour lesson from some of the greats that we do have haunting Mudcat like Rick Fielding, Art Thieme, Kendal, and many many others. Not quite as good as sitting around in the living room with them, but much cheaper than a plane ticket!

What do you think?

Here is a direct link to the secure page for making donations by credit card, for the "impulsive" buyers.

As for all of the ideas. They are really great! I think it would probably be best if everyone interested in whatever lessons, were to send a personal message to the person offering then, they and the teacher, could work out times and payment to the Mudcat. That way no one person becomes burdened with too much to coordinate.

Please remember, we need to make these things happen, for real, so that there is an immediate flow of aid for the Mudcat. Thanks, kat

Max or Joe,

Is entering my address on the Membership page an absolute prerequisite to making a credit card donation? After seeing the ugly injuries to a house-mate by a plain oldfashioned stalker, I'm not prepared to submit my street address together with e-mail etc. on a non-secure site. If it is a must-do, I'll take the off-ramp and find me a snail.

I was just about the make an addition to the Mudcat Songbook. It is a song about 'bikers'. If someone would like this song to be dedicated to them or someone they know. A donation will ensure that the song will appear in the Songbook with the name and thanks, next to it (if that is OK with Anne).
