Hey all, it's that time of year again. It costs us $2000 a year for our speedy and reliable server and hosting, funds that we raise through an annual drive in the fall. Show your love for unmannedspaceflight.com through a donation of $100, $20, $10, $5, or whatever you can afford. Donations are tax-deductible in the U.S.

Any funds raised over and above the $2000 goal for UMSF hosting will support our continuing project to build up and enhance our amateur image processing database, which now contains nearly 800 images. We recently renamed the Planetary Society's image database for one of our cofounders, Bruce Murray, who died this year. The Bruce Murray Space Images Library incorporates our amateur image database as well as professionally produced images.

Please help us keep UMSF going! Thanks in advance for your support.

I rarely post here but I do lurk here frequently. And I like this site a lot. So I gave $25 USD.

I've been lurking since practically the start, and this wonderful place deserves all the support it can get. I'll pay up my dues by the end of the week (just a student with two jobs, but this will be worth it!) Always had excuses the previous years....

Right on!!!

Special bonus offer: If we exceed our goal by 50% or more I will change my icon to something incredibly personally embarrassing (no, not in THAT way...get your minds out of the gutter, dammit!!!) for a period of two weeks, during which time I will expect unceasing mockery.

Of course, my ultimate objective is to, y'know, kill all humans anyhow so it's alright for you meat bags to have some fun at the expense of my magnificence. It will make no difference in your fate...MUWAA-HA-HAAAA!!! wink.gif

Thanks, Pospa! smile.gif

No, mercifully not; that was disapproved by the admin/mod team. There are still new frontiers of humiliation to be explored!!!

FYI I have not had any luck being able to load the donation web page for the last hour or so. Hopefully a temporary issue.

EDIT: wouldn't you know, a few minutes later the page finally popped up!

<cha-ching!> $50 from the stingy robot. I was hoping for a lot more; that lady's purse looked expensive.

And it's $50 from me. Hope we push over the goal.

It told me that my contribution was designated to amateur imaging. I'm assuming it went to the right place.
