When setting up every part of the new system here in the past years we were hoping for a site which could support itself. Yet when we look back at the amount that we've had to spend on site licenses, updates, hosting, etc. we are far from reaching this...

In order for us to make updates and have full time staff requires the funds to at least break even; we're not out to make a proffit, we're just out to make a place for everyone, not a hole in a wallet as we have been lately.

If every member of UGN Security donated even $5 per year we'd have $9480 which would cover every part of our bandwidth requirements, servers, events, licenses, etc.

We're not asking you to pay us to visit, we're asking that if you appreciate the site to make a small $10 donation when you can so we can stay around... The store and banners on the site don't bring in even $50 a year, which won't even cover an extension of the BBS software's license.

We accept paypal donations to Gizmo[at]undergroundnews[dot]com or mailed donations of hardware/software/cash to:

James Corthell
C/O UGN Security
11705 SE 63RD Ave Suite 2
Milwaukie, OR 97222

Thank you for your ear, your traffic, and your assictance,
Gizmo

You just got $10 from me. I damn sure hope I'm not the only one.

Dude, WTF?

I am using a mailbox protection system to block unsolicted junk mail. Because you are actually reading this note, it is highly unlikely that your message to me was in fact unsolicited. However, I regret that I do not already have your email address in my whitelist. That is why this note has been sent to you.

You should do something to fix this so donating isn't a pain in the ass. I hope you get the email.

actually that notification is something setup at my home pop/smtp server, spam protection and all heh... I set an auto allow for paypal donations heh...

Yeh, people don't seem to want to donate to things they like to visit, I'm hoping that some people will give half a crap for once, but we'll see :/...

UGN's my baby, has been since the beginning, I loved this site so much that I ended up buying it because I didn't want to see it turned into one of those "popular search engines" :/...

but the price has gotten kinda heavy... $4000 for the site, hosting, license costs, server costs, etc... Thank god for SilentRage, Sin, and Infinite donating their BW for the IRC servers...

I made a small donation too cause I've been wit UGN for so long. if UBB is costin too much, maybe you should switch to open source, http://www.phpbb.com/downloads.php. That's a great board rite there, IMO it's better than UBB. well, good luck wit the site.

The BBS suite we have is the best out there, i've been helping at the project for some time and won't go to anyone. The BBS isn't the hassle, it's the majority of everything else...

For the BBS we can keep the same version for as long as we want; if you looked at the feature lists in each new version that are *stock* you'd probably end up creaming yourself...

Hey, you can grab that ducky-girl-perg pic (from the "Photoshop your heart out" thread)and send it to some bleeding-hearts save the kids association with the message "Remember, every minute I spend reading about crime is a minute that I'm not actively ingaged in it."

If i had a credit card i would donate. i have been going to this site for a while now. joined recently. and it has helped in a lot of ways, i believe this site to be the best on the net.


The way to trancend karma lies in the proper use of the mind and the will. The oneness of all life is a truth that can be fully realized only when false notions of a seperate self, whose destiny can be considered apart from the whole, are forever annihilated.

I have a ton of stuff to donate all kinds of hardware that i got from a D.I.T computers place that was closing and had a huge sale. So i got like a grand worth of stuff for like 150 bucks and i got plenty of cash. But I'm not going to donate anything because i get no respect from anyone in here just because everyone thinks I'm ignorant I'm sorry but no. (Ice, Infinite) I liked this site to why does every one half to be so disrespectful. I'm sorry Gizmo really i am. Maby under different circumstances.

Whatever you can send, cash or hardware wise it'd be greatly appreciated. I have the need for a few pc's around the house for differant projects (plus sharing a laptop between 4 people = bitch), also the $ wise always goes up, for instance extra bandwidth, licensing, etc, etc, etc :

I can't make a donation right now cause money is really tight. I'm in the middle of a lawsuit right now.
I try and send you something as soon as I can.
