Good luck Joel, I will make a small contribution when I make my PayPal Acct or figure out how to use it. You and I have talked about this in the past and am just wondering if you are still exploring some of the Plan B & C options.

Also, I like the idea of Subscription Feedback. Have you explored the probability of this? The reality is, very little of quality is still free on the Internet. Even Geocities is charging for traffic now, if you can believe that. If you have at least 300 members and charged $2 a month or something, I think you could do it. I think the idea could work.

Yeah I am still lucky to have access via FTP to the servers that host U2LA.com, I dont know how much longer that will last and I just got DSL, so its time for one last concert.

Skeek, this week we'll do Slane!

Yep.. I'm exploring other options as I've mentioned, but I need to be sure before any change is made. Moving everything isnt an easy task.. if we have to do it.. I'd like to do it only once.

As far as Feedback subscriptions, I'd like to hear others views/ideas on this. I'm not opposed to it, although I'd prefer to keep the site as free as possible.

There are currently over 5000 registered mebers of Feedback and approximately 25,000-40,000 people who read atleast one thread each month.

Wanderer, chances are you have more than enough in extra funds to donate to both causes. Imagine that one take out meal that you do NOT buy this week, but instead you eat at home. There is your donation. Instead of spending $15 on a pizza, have macaroni and cheese for lunch/dinner. There's your donation.

While I fully agree that the victims of this tragedy need our help more, as Elvis pointed out, a mere one dollar donation from everyone on this board could save it. Tell me, can you not spare that one dollar? If so, let me know and I will gladly donate a dollar on your behalf.

I donated because this board provided me with much more than U2 news this week. It was my way to vent. It was my outlet for news. It was my venue for discussing what should be done. The U2 information alone is reason enough for my donation. But when coupled with all the other features, it seemed that I should help do whatever I could to keep this site going.

Also, I should stress that if we are able to gather more funds than what Joel needs, we can use those funds to make a donation to Red Cross in the name of Interference. In the past, WIRE used to have annual charity drives where over $5,000 (!) was gathered one year and donated to Amnesty International. I think it's time we do something similar here on Interference.

So view your donation as a contribution to the "Save Interference/Help the Red Cross" cause. Nothing but good can come of your money because of your donation. Considering people spend hundreds of dollars travelling around the world just to see U2, I would hope that a mere dollar donation to this very worthy cause would not be a problem.

Elvis,

I'd be willing to help provide bandwith, and possibly a machine.

We have several websites, and could keep it going.

I need to know what kind of traffic we're talking about though.

Hey Elvis...

Sorry to hear about this current predicament. Unfortunately, with the way the dot-com world is going with this economy, I kind of figured it would come to this eventually.

I am sending an e-mail to request an address so I can send a small donation via money order. I really don't trust the internet enough to let them handle it....

Sorry to hear about this Elvis.
I agree with the subscription fee, I'd be willing to pay.
I'll e-mail you for a snail mail address.
Camilo, sorry to hear you're still looking for a job, good luck!
doctorwho, well said, thank you.

I also agree with dr.who. This site has been a source of comfort in such difficult times. The people I've met here in the short amount of time have provided me with great laughter and made life a little easier and more joyful everyday. Even if we tried moving elsewhere people would get lost in the shuffle and Feedback would never be the same. I personally would find it extremely offensive and an act of betrayal if we abandon the site and all its hard work, like what has happened to Napster. For that reason I have just finished making my contribution through paypal and hope everyone will show the same support.
