So, you noticed the little donation thing at the top and at the right? No? Well, it is there. Jazz-Sax isn’t really cheap to run. There is the reoccuring domain registration fee, and then my monthly internet bill (which is a little more due to the static IPs I have that allow for running a web server).

The Google Ads have been deferring the costs of just running stuff. It helps, and I don’t think the ads are as obtrusive as they could be. Fairly tame. However, the little Atom powered server that the site runs off of (great little Linux box by the way) could really use a SSD to replace the current Hard Drive (which is about 3 years old or so….don’t really know. 24/7/365 x 3+).

I’m hoping that either we can raise some money to get one (they are like $60 now for a 50 gig one, and that is basically what it needs) or if someone has one they want to donate. Either way. It would help to ensure a faster, more stable site. Plus the MySQL database would probably scream on a SSD compared to the current HD. The site gets way bogged down due to MySQL queries.

Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year!

Donations and Stuff

Jazz-Sax has been around a LONG TIME. I’d say one of the longest running sites, since 1997 I believe. And all the stuff here is free. I do require you to register in the hopes that perhaps people comment on stuff, ask questions, etc, etc. I’m not going to password protect posts. Nor require a subscription (I hope that link people are not paying to see!). It is kind of frustrating that some of the guys on the net are charging for things like fingering charts when other people like Charles McNeal are giving away amazing transcriptions for nothing. Something is wrong out there!

Sometimes I receive donations. That is a great thing. Someone just donated some money for one of the arrangements I have up. Thank you very much. I just wish I had time to put more stuff up. More stuff is coming…..soon I hope.
