Please do not forget to donate some money from time to time so that way we can keep this site going. Remember that this site is part of the WALMS Network which is a network of sites such as Tapecity (old Bootcity),  DigitalBoots | Ryan Adams Archive | Ryan Adams Radio | CrowsTown Live Music Sharing | ToBeYoung | Metallifukinca | Answering Bell. These sites are all founded by Travis and Hal and sometimes we need to help by giving a small donation after all it is them who gives us the site. It is not them who tells me to come here and write this but i feel that sometimes i need to make you aware that these things costs alot of money to run and maintain. Vbulletin costs money and we need to pay a yearly subscribtion. I think we have got a great site here and alot of free bootlegs so if you think you could give a small donation to help out please click on the link below.

As always thank you all for making this site what it is!

Thanks for the reminder Simon.  This site is wonderful to us fans and I'd hate to see it disappear!

About how much does it take to keep this site running?  Any monthly/yearly estimates?

Right now the network is run on two servers in Virginia which we lease.  The monthly costs for both are $330.00.  We also have to pay license fees for the forum software and some extensions for the trackers.

Right now the annual estimated costs are $4250.  About 60% of the annual costs are made by donations or by contributions by people who we host.   The rest is paid directly by either myself or Hal.
