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,

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

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!

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).

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 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...

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!

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.

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.
