 A bump on Zachs' bump!  =)

 And to point out that the podcasts alone are well worth any amount donated folks. Not to mention the content within the entire site.

We currently need to raise $75 to cover our server payments from June 1st until July 15th and for every 28 days hereafter, we require a minimum of $75 per month

I would just like to take a moment to emphasize our current financial situation.

As of today, Hailing Frequency is aproximatly $300 dollars in the Red.  This is the first time in a long while where HF has been in the red, so if anyone can spare anything, please help out.

After the last server payment which was made just a couple of days ago, we are once again in the red.

We could use at least $50.00 of donations in the coming week to cover upcoming domain renewals.

This topic is once again being bumped.  Due to high load on our servers through December and January, we are moving some of Hailing Frequency's files onto a CDN - thats a Content Delivery Network.

This will enable us to handle huge data spikes and traffic spikes to the website with ease, so we do not crash as we did the other day during the 1000 open beta key giveaway extravaganza.

In addition, we are also adding a new server to our cluser/rack to increase our available bandwidth and further enhance our ability to handle our growing community.

At the moment, all of this network expandature is being covered at a loss.  Hailing Frequency is not-for-profit and the only money we make is via donations, and that money goes right back into Hailing Frequency.

In order to afford to keep our website online into the future, we require as many donations at the moment, as possible.

We have monthly targets, however, any extra donations will be saved and used on months where less people donate.

So if you can spare $1, $10, $20, $100, $200 - whatever you can spare, and if you have an interest in helping us out, then please do donate either at:

http://hailingfrequency.com/boards/index.php?action=treasury

Or directly to our paypal account which is "donations@hailingfrequency.co.uk"

Thank you.

Hailing Frequency needs to raise around $200 in donations within the next 24 hours!

We have been invited to attend the guiness world record attempt for Star Trek Online this weekend and need these donations to cover promotion of Hailing Frequency, extra batteries for our video cameras and laptops, and a new portable microphone.

IF you can help, please send donations via PayPal to donations@hailingfrequency.co.uk or via http://hailingfrequency.com/boards/index.php?action=treasury

Thank you
