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:
Become 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)
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
