First off, VERY well done, you guys!!! And even though it's currently almost 0300 GMT 1 Oct, fair is fair; I'm kicking in another $50.

(Sigh)...Joined the Air Force. Went to college. And here I am praying that my avatar on the most respected space exploration forum on the entire Internet will be a dancing robot in a tutu...okay, so yeah, that was TOTALLY the objective all along!!! tongue.gif

Let's just do it.

Damn...the things I do for UMSF...are never nearly enough. smile.gif

Please donate if you can.

It looks like we're safe from the pink dancing robot -- we're at $5225 now. I'm actually kinda relieved smile.gif

Thanks again to everyone who contributed. We met our goal, and with that extra $225 and whatever straggles in over the next few months, the Society will be able to cover most of the June hosting bill; so we won't be hassling you for money again for a year.

Well, I'll man up if it does come to pass. But, yes, thanks to you all for supporting UMSF! smile.gif

UMSF used to have a site where we could buy mugs, tshirts, etc.
Does anyone ( Nprev, Emily, Doug) know if it is still around ?

I used to maintain one at CafePress - but the quality of the products wasn't something I was especially happy with so I culled it. The effort in setting it up really didn't justify the tiny tiny revenue it generated.

I have just opened a new Planetary Society store at Redbubble and got my first shipment today. Quality is great, though prices are high. They only do apparel, stickers, and posters. I'd be happy to throw some UMSF related stuff up there. I'll slowly be moving other content from our Cafepress store to the Redbubble store, and I have a few new designs to add.

Nearly all our T-shirts are designed by Astro0 anyway smile.gif

If anybody knows of a good alternative to Cafepress for tchotchkes (mugs, hats, keychains, what have you), I'd love to hear recommendations. Cafepress quality has gone down the toilet, and the sales interface is absolutely awful; I'm done with using them.
