Hey Dave,

Please tell me you are going to be updating/activating the show schedule and scores pages soon. The season is upon us tonight and the links are still showing 2003 info. :cry: I'd hate to have to start relying on other sites for my daily check of what happened and what's up next. :wink:

Sorry about about taking so long. I have been totally distracted lately trying to straighten out web server problems where I host my 30 or more websites. I will be moving the Sound Machine website in the next week or so. Hopefully the forum will only be effected for less than a day. I just now uploaded the new pages for the Scores Archive. I have the June schedule on line as well. I had to really think hard about doing the scores thing again this year. I reason I started it in the first place was that there were NO sites that posted scores quickly and completely. Well, that is no longer ths case, many sites have gone 21st century, finally, and has fast automated systems for posting their scores. The only advantage the Sound Machine Scores Archive still has is that all the scores or visible on the screen at the same time which makes cross checking and comparisons easier. But it is still a BIG time commitment for me. Luckily (well I guess it's how you want to look at it) there seem to be a lot fewer shows this year. I'll try to do my best again!

Fortunately for all of us, you are also still The Man(TM). Thank you so much for your efforts.

True enough. At least with such a shortened season we have very few days where no one is performing, and most days have multiple shows. I'd rather have the thirty-plus extra shows per summer, but it'll be nice not have so many days off.

Thanks again, Dave. You rock the world.

It takes an enormous amount of work and also a financial commitment to keep this board going and we all owe a big thanks to Dave Schaafsma.
:D :bow: :cheers: :D

All right...where does the money come from? Are contributions needed? To whom and where do we send our checks?

So far, Dave has resisted, unlike a certain competitor, calling for donations, or accepting advertising, but has continued to run his site as a goodwill gesture for the benefit of the activity. I deeply respect that. I'm sure Dave knows that if there was a financial need for support from website regulars due to increaing costs, that some of us would be there for him. He has only to ask.

A website does not have to be an expensive undertaking if you know what you are doing. If you don't count my time for posting scores and keeping an eye on things, the grand total cost of this website is about $10 per month. I am a reseller for a web hosting company, since I am a professional web designer and host and manitain about 30 websites, and get my web hosting at a large discount. So there is no real need for any financial donations to this site afloat. But THANK YOU all for the thought. It makes me feel good to be appreciated.
