(I received this in my email last week)

Message sent to you follows:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hello BCE Members,

It is once again time to gather together funds to pay for our server for
the next 6 months. Our costs to maintain the 20Mbit service is $1200. I
have collected about $325 since the first of the year making our
fundraising goal $875. It is only through the continued support of BCE
members that we can continue to keep the tunes flowing your way. If you
havenít contributed in the past year, please consider making a
contribution. Our bill is due in early June, so how about opening your
wallet just a bit in the next few weeks.

You can donate by clicking the donation button at the bottom of the main
page and following the Paypal link. Please write your user name on your
donation form as I often can not identify contributors from the real name
or email address. It sucks when I can not acknowledge someoneís
contribution.

You may also contribute by sending me a check in the mail to the address
posted below. More effort I suppose, but it does save us the Paypal
charges.

Either way, all money received will go directly to paying for the server.

Thanks for your consideration,

Bill

Good lord. Thanks for the reminder why I never go back to that site.

I was content when they had mp3's and a fair amount of lossless sources at that site. When they asked the first time for a contribution I think I mailed in $15, since I was able to get a boatload of music. But it still kind of soured me, along with the banning of members, powertrips, backtalking etc..they kept sending me emails to come back to the site, and of course then asked for more mullah. [CENSORED] that.
Fortunately I don't get anymore emails from BCE since I changed my email addy and dropped my verizon account. Twisted Evil

I think I sent them like $25 once. I was filling hard drives with lossless like crazy for a year or two. Then came the bannings, and political correctness that I despise.

I must have made someone there pissed; I never received "please come back" or and more solicitation emails. Oh well... Laughing

By the way Kochman - did you tell everyone about the new Sailor Pub fee? $149.99 per month. You're saving over $50 per month compared to BCE!!

Payable directly to my swiss bank account!
And believe me, I am giving the artists' royalties with the money you "donate".

AHAHAAAHAHAHA.

I'm surprised they haven't been contacted by the "respect my authorities"

Well, another humorous surprise in my email this morning. Really can't believe that these guys are still at it over there. Here is what I received:

Message sent to you follows:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hello BCE Member,
We are implementing a new automated server security system. This replaces
the current manual IP registration system. If your IP address changes or
you wish to log onto the server from a different computer, you can
complete a new IP registration and gain instant access to the server. You
will however need to re-register your IP address each time your IP address
changes or you wish to access the server from a different computer as
only one IP address per member will be allowed in the security system.

If you have previously registered your IP address you will need to click on
the following link.

Only registered users can see links on this forum!
Register or Login on forum!



In the window that opens, simply enter your email address and BCE user
name. Doing so will enter your current IP address into the system and
you'll be good to go. Please visit the IP Registration forum on site for
further details.

If you have never registered your IP address, please check the first time
registration box on the form. Doing so will generate an email to site
admins so that we can verify your membership and enter your user name &
email address into the system along with your IP address. New
registrations are not automatically entered into the security system, but
once you are in the system, future registrations will be automatic.

If you have questions or concerns please do not respond to this email, but
instead post in the IP Registration forum on site. For the next 3-4 days,
while members populate the system with their IP addresses, the security
system will not be turned on. During this short window of time, members
will be able to access the server just be entering the user name and
password posted in the Seat Assignment forum. We encourage you to use this
time to complete your registration so that your access to the server will
not be interrupted.

Thanks,
The BCE Administrative Team

I will just keep switching bank accounts every pay check so that they can't collect from me! Laughing
