Subject: Mudcat Upgrade Fundraiser Part II
From: Max
Date: 26 Mar 13 - 05:48 PM

Well gang, I am humbled, honored and pleased as punch at the overwhelming success of our December round of fundraising to work on the database end of the mudcat upgrade. While I just hoped for a few bucks to keep us plugging thru the (seemingly endless) cold winter months of central Pennsylvania, we actually got halfway to our total programmatic budgets extending thru the summer.

To date, the specialists and I have a fully functional opensource database slave in operation. At this juncture it is passively (attempting) mirroring our production server, serving as a backup and testing to make sure it accepts, stores and redelivers the data (in all it's infinite international diversity of crazy characters, encoding format, html tags, sanskrit... and spaw's posts). Incidentally, we will soon be sending out a request to verify your membership email addresses, update your passwords and I know of a few of you who may have to change your usernames slightly due to strange characters. More on this later...

Living in a college town and therefore using a lot of college staff as helpers, the summer is where we need to get the bulk of our programming done. While I am not hiring students, their absence affords us the time to invest outside our usual semester load.

Our third and final phase is planned for fall and will be for hardware to create basically 2 exact servers for redundant fail-over. That is to say, no more "mudcat is down" stuff.

So here I am with hat in hand once again requesting you to dig deep and give what you can to keep us going. All the same is still the case in how's and where's which you can find below.

Thanks all, having a ball with the work and I'll have more info coming soon.

Keeping this short, the best way to contribute in via Paypal. They have been very good to us over the years, cut us a break on their cut cuz we're awesome and allow us to accept any sort of currencies without conversion/transfer/banking fees. The account is max@mudcat.org which you can enter manually or by clicking the following links and buttons:

USD:

GBP:

EUR:

AUD:

CAD:


If you need to, you can also mail checks or money orders in US currency, ***made out to Max Spiegel*** to:

Max Spiegel
The Mudcat Cafe
PO Box 274
State College, PA 16804

In the UK, the kind kind folks knows as The (UK) Friends of Mudcat can help, hopefully posting below the information you will need to see that the funds are directed such that we can avoid the banking fees usually associated with international bank transfers.

And as always but especially during this holiday season, you can help mudcat by shopping at Amazon using the following links (though our cut won't show up till January and February):
amazon.mudcat.org or amazonUK.mudcat.org or amazonFR.mudcat.org or amazonCA.mudcat.org

The big upside is that once the upgrade is complete, mudcat.org will be completely sustainable on non-member ad clicks. Huuurrrrraaaaayyy! No more ads for members, and God willing, no more of my pesky contribution requests (read: begging). Also, until then, please take this as a reminder that clicking our ads is an extremely important/effective source of revenue for mudcat.org.

Thanks for your time and considerations

I can't be first, but I can be second.

I CAN be first with the following:
So, how much do you actually need? How much did you need last time, and how much did you get? Why? Will you be posting a detailed list of what you used the money for? Are you wearing tighty-whities, shorts, a G-string or none of the above? If you have 6.7 oranges and 3.178 kumquats and put the bananas on a train traveling west at 65 MPH, what color is an invisible dirigible?

Got about seven grand since December, need another eight for summer and ten more come fall... plus the five we need to get thru any year tho the ads are covering that nowa days. Money is for labor mostly, myself and those much smarter than I, hardware, cloud space for backup, and if we get enough, a redundant internet connection. I'm really trying hard to create a sustainable model here, really doing things the right way, no band-aids, hacks or put off something for another day or we'll regret later. I may call on several uber-specialists as we come across different issues.

Like the traditions stored within, mudcat's great substance is that we've stood the test of time in a world where giants have come and gone. I'm vested. You build something that gets 17 years in and a guy, this guy, gets to feel like its worth his time to build something that could last forever. I suppose in other trade terms I could say that I'm trying to put a copper roof on the old shack. They last 100 years.

I'd be more than happy to do what i did previously and put all four of my CDs in the auction. Gnu was wonderful in helping out with that, but the only issue that I have is shipping overseas or to Canada (Gnu: you got lucky) since the USPS international postal rates doubled last month. So check out the auction, folks.

The postage issue concerns international bidders only. Folks in the USA will get CDs. If any folks OUTSIDE of the USA are the winning bidders then they can either a)foot the bill for postage of CDs or b) I'll offer digital downloads.

International postage for four CDs to Europe is over $25. Canada is about $20. US postage is about $3.50 .

I know what you are going to say, Dick. The fact is that International postage has doubled even without the cases.

It's the "rigid" bit that does it. Even without cases, the postage is going to be at least $7 or $8 USPS for ONE CD internationally.

But have you done it since the rate increase? Those went into effect in January 2013. Well, it's still going to be expensive for four CDs Internationally even without cases. Thus the downloads, and those would be CD quality (AIFF or WAV).

Folks, I'm sad to report that as overwhelmingly successful as the December fundraiser was, Phase II is equally as underwhelming.

As you may know, I am employed by a University. The programmers, monkeys and specialists I am in a position to use are also employees of this particular institution that happens to be 2 weeks away from the summer break. Now, while the students get the summer off, our workload is merely lightened by their absence (not to mention 3/4 of us are single parents who's monkeys will be wanting to play in the sunshine and such).

The point is, that it is imperative that we make the most of this 119 days of summer break to complete the bulk of programming. If we can't get at least a running prototype, I don't know when I'll have the resources to finish what we started. I fear the worst, that I'll have a mess, figuratively and literally on my hands and in my house, and all this effort will go to waste.

Please help support the future of the mudcat.

More soon....

Ranger1 is the winner of the CDs. The auction is another way to raise money for the Mudcat. I am not sure why more folks weren't bidding, even if you weren't that into the music CDs still make wonderful gifts.

My music is my currency and really the only way I can help, but if folks aren't going to bid in the auctions, then maybe I am missing something?

Perhaps I should try this with only one CD?

$55 dollars on it's way to you, Max from Ranger1. I am so sorry it's not more.

There was an overage from the Art Thieme computer contributions, largely because of Best Buy's goofy online order system. After two days of waiting for an order to be confirmed I cancelled and called in my order - and found that his computer had gone on sale for $100 less that my first order. The original overage and the Best Buy windfall are headed Max's way as soon as it clears from my bank to PayPal.

I won auctions with crazy bids, only to give the item to the bidder that I knew REALLY wanted it. I entered auctions and said "I'll pay $X if you send me the CDs or whatever today and keep the auction open as advertised." I have proposed CRAZY auction "items" that many people couldn't even unerstand and they flopped (gnu crazy? Noooo? Really? >;-) WTF?)

gnu, it isn't easy to exchamge foreign currency at banks in the US. They charge extra fees for it and it usually eats up a huge amount of the currency. I think they do this on purpose to discourage anyone trying. It's more work than its worth if you send Canadian currency, unless he has someone who will cash it out at par (maybe someone who would take it back to Canada when they go.) If he lived near the border there would probably be businesses that would do it.

SRS (and everyone else who is following the fast paced and riveting story of the $5 I am gonna send to Max right away in hopes that Mudcat can continue to be such a valuable resource for the masses and, in my case, some might say, asses)... I am 99% sure delivery to Her Majesty's Roaly Canuck Postal Services, those fearless guys and gals who brave the elements... well unless it's really bad out... will be effected no later than tomorrow... sometime. Stay tuned for the final episode of the story tomorrow... I hope.

SRS, by law only Federal Reserve banks may deal in foreign currency. This means that a bank in Muleshoe, TX, would have to send the foreign money to a FR bank for exchange. This is expensive and a nuisance.

Many merchants along the Canada-U.S. border on both sides will take currency of either country, since shoppers go both ways and they aren't faced with the bank problem.

Staceys in Bangoh takes Canadian money at pah, by the bus load. At least, they did when the Canuck buck was low.

Hmmmm... maybe that's why the bus company went out of business just a little while ago?

Ya done good sg. Congrats. Yer lucky the auction closes at such a piss poor time of day fer the vast majority of potential bidders and, thereby, most "detrementally importantly", fer Mudcat. Otherwise, ya would had ta bid a lot higher... and Mudcat woulda made a lot more money.

Bringing this back to the top to remind people that Mudcat central is still working on an upgrade.

Maybe it's time to look into crowd funding sites. There are many options to choose from, and some are better than others for collecting funding from Europe versus the US/North America.

I'm pretty sure Max still needs a pile more money. I think Mudcat would run a lot faster if Max could buy a nice server.
