It's that time again...

size=+1>Addendum, 20 Otober: As many of you noticed, the Forum was offline for about 36 hours this week. The server experienced a catastrophic hardware failure. Through a combination of luck,
eBay, and spending an all-nighter at the datacenter repairing it, we are now back online. To date, I have only received roughly one-fourth of the goal shown below.

I am going to keep the donation button active until the end of the month, hoping that I an actually replace this poor 16-year-old in November. Thank you for your support in advance

Goal for this year: $3,500. A new RAID array that is more up to date than 143GB SCSI disks, a forum software with an actual 2017 copyright date, and disks for the array. Now that my health issues have stabilized, it is go time--as I go in for more surgery in November. Strike while the iron is hot!

If it's not an instrument or mouthpiece then it's an accessory! Talk about the toys we love to play with.
