This was posted to the AIMS Newsletter just yesterday.

News and Notes 2-22-2000 Arizona Irish Music Society George L. O'Brien

I've noticed that many of the AZ Irish band sites list The Mudcat Cafe (www.mudcat.com) as a link. It is a wonderful resource for getting lyrics and songs...but they are in trouble of running out of resources. This is a quote from "Max", the man who started the 'Cat' and maintains it: "...the Mudcat is getting more popular. The SuperSearch was merely the first thing to go. As we continue to get new users, memebers and general traffic, the demand on our hardware increases, and the two ways to compensate are to upgrade or reduce complex functionality. Before the supersearch, the digitrad search was the bear, and I have been worried for over a year about it. It is one thing to be able to JUST SURVIVE, which we do, but I am interested in a lot more than just survival. Currently we can't keep up with SURVIVAL let alone grow and enhance."

They are looking for people to be able to donate either items that can be auctioned, or just plain send in whatever they can. Would you let people know please? This is a wonderful resource that a lot of us use to find songs...it would be a shame to lose it.

Thought it was a goner tho' it was a close squeak
Poor old Max didn't know what to do
But he didn't need to worry 'cuz the 'Cat came through!

It's only beginning, Maxwell...your site will become famous. For starters, it (I have been told) is being favorably mentioned in next week's San Diego Union, our local jaundice sheet, including El Radio...more to follow. Keep yer bandwidth up!

The orders are going through, a simple personal message to me and I will confirm. Don't worry, I process the orders manually so no doubles or errors are possible (because I am perfect of course). Thanks everyone, we are doing really well. We're at $1275.00 (that I have recieved) so far. Thank you everyone. Looks like the uprgrade isn't gonna be a problem.

Y'know Max, this just shows to go you that good software design both comes from the heart and speaks to the heart when it is used -- or lets hearts and minds communbicate without getting in the damn way.

I can think of hundreds of ways you could have screwed this site up, but instead you designed it so that people could use it wuickly and so that it paralleld exactly what their needs would be.

So if there's some joy coming back to you, slap yourself on the back for earning every microsecond.

Is it just the super search that is trouble? I mean, long term...what kind of memory will this site take up?

I know it sounds like a stupid question, but I've had a lot of people ask, "So what?" So we can't super search. All I want is to get lyrics.

Now, I don't agree with the dmn philosophy, but I'd think that if people are going to link to this site they should dmn well support it!

I suspect we could use native material, possibly applying a little Trobriand Island Braid technique, to get Max' tails to stay on without pins. That blonde hairdo doesn't fool me -- he's probably hirsute enough to swing a couple of Munchkins...

Sorcha,

This is no problem, he will simnply have to have whatever tails are available tacked on directly. It goes with the territory he has staked out as our fearless leader-- you know every non-profit has to have an executive branch to manage the rest (us). There is a price to be paid for glory such as this.

I would only hope that no one will bring possum tails but this will depend on who wins him as their date, I believe.

I will write or (copy-edit) grants if someone finds the ones we should go after and arranges to send me the grant kit to go after them.

I would also suggest press coverage of this site if it has not already happened. If it has, pls point me to info about it. If not, pls indicate ideas/interest in working on this.

As a non-profit, is there a Mudcat board that has as one of its jobs the raising of funds or planning of resources? Does Max get any organized help like that? Our Red Cross chapter now has bylaws that allow for board participation via e-mail. I would attend an in-person annual Mudcat "business" meeting to back up e-meetings, with any of you, wouldn't many of us?

Here's a FR idea some of us might apply in our own backyards:

In our small community we help people via spaghetti suppers. There are several each week, in a county with only 14,000 households. It's where you go to see and be seen, catch the latest news, take the kids out cheap, get a bite... Normal activity. What if big name performers in some of the larger cities would help Mudcat by appearing at a benefit dinner the night of or after a local appearance? They would not play, they would just visit. The 'catters organizing this, and all their friends, would play at it, In our church, the town's Mens' Chorus raises thousands by hosting a Pizza Party. Pizza is free or cheap from all the local pizzerias, tickets are sold, and long tables are set up. The men of the Chorus serve and bus tables, and every half hour they suspend serving to sing a few numbers. It's so popular they turn people away. They also sell raffle tickets along the tables all evening for drawings on donated door prizes. If this were a town with a folk market big enough to support a couple of clubs, this would work easily. It would also work for a smaller market with a peformer who already has a large local following and a bunch of creative opportunities to organize. It would promote everyone's music. And if half the proceeds are to go to a local charity, that charity might take over the details of food, paper goods, and publicity.

Variation--

The annual Mudcat Banquet, in whatever area has the most 'Catters, whenevr Max can be there to speak. Big-ticket fancy affair. Top local leaders invited (radicals under the gray suits, many of them).

k/k,

This is the CC page instruction I'm referring to:

If you did not enter the correct address and phone number in the membership form, please go back and do so now or include it in your letter, fax or phone call.

The CC page is secure, no problem, but the membership page isn't, which is when I get all squeamish about deliberately connecting my e-mail with my address and phone number for all of e-land to see.

But if the address & phone are not needed for CC donations, I'm not maxed out *groan* and next to child hunger, there's no cause more worthy.

I'll check back for info after I shovel. Today I remember why I like rain!

Hugs for 'Cat supporters, crows or otherwise!
