Become a Digital Gunfire sponsor/subscriber!
« on: January 16, 2009, 08:57:43 AM »
Digital Gunfire runs almost completely on other peoples generosity. The bandwidth you are using to listen to the stream is all donated by generous listeners. I'm very appreciative to these people as, without them, Digital Gunfire would have stopped streaming a very long time ago.

The big downside to this is that I am constantly losing bandwidth as people are no longer able to donate it and the available listener slots on Digital Gunfire are constantly fluctuating. Due to this, I am starting a formal sponsorship program for Digital Gunfire by which you can contribute to assist in securing reliable bandwidth for the station. There are three ways you can be a part of this program.

Current Subscriber Benefits

More are forthcoming. As of right now, as a subscriber:

  • A reserved slot on the private 192kbps server
  • You may submit two song requests per day and your requests are prioritized
  • Advertisements are hidden on the front page and the forum
  • Get to join the 'Subscribers' forum group which allows you to set a custom title
  • Get entered into a monthly drawing for free swag (t-shirts, CDs etc)

Become a Subscriber

If you don't have bandwidth to donate, you can subscribe to Digital Gunfire via Paypal. All subscription income will be used to pay for site costs, purchase music and pay for bandwidth. Follow this link to set up a recurring $4.95 USD subscription. You can cancel your subscription at any time. While your subscription is active, you will receive all subscriber benefits.

Donate Bandwidth

One of the ways you can assist is by donating bandwidth. If you have access to a high speed, reliable pipe (e.g. 10Mbps symmetrical or above) and a dedicated server on that pipe (Windows or *nix) then you can donate any portion of that pipe to be a relay for Digital Gunfire. Each listener uses 128 kilobits and you can run a relay of any size, from 100 listeners to 100,000. I would be happy to manage and maintain the relay software on the server, via SSH, RDP, VNC or some other remote access method of your choosing.

If you donate at least a 100 listener server to Digital Gunfire, you will receive all subscriber benefits.


Donate Money

You can also make a one time donation to help support Digital Gunfire. Follow this link to make a donation through Paypal.

Thanks for reading and considering assisting in supporting Digital Gunfire! Please contact me via email or this forum for further details.

Added another benefit today - FREE STUFF!

I'll be holding regular drawings for subscribers where you will be entered to win some free stuff - CDs, t-shirts etc. Metropolis and some other labels will be donating stuff that I'll give out as I receive it.

I absolutely love Digital Gunfire and would love to subscribe an help support. (I have purchased a t-shirt in the past) My question is, on a monthly subscription of $4.95, once I set my credit card info and such, is this automatically deducted every month or do I have to donate myself manually from month to month?

It is automatic if you use the subscription link. You can cancel at any time.

Just want to drop in a big THANK YOU for filling my work days with great selection of music!

I encourage anyone listening to the free stream to subscribe - the sound is so much better.

I actually don't notice a difference with the subscriber stream, I guess i've destroyed my ears >< I subscribe because I want to give back to Shirow the excellent days of listening pleasure he has given me :)

Subscribing to DG was the best thing I've done all year. I'm extremely pleased and you have the best music selection I've heard so far. Thank you very much :p

Just subscribed...bless.

All these years I listened, I never knew you were right down the road--I've moved to Tucson, but listened all the time from Fox River Grove, IL.

Subscribing was the best way to show how much I love DG and this music!
