Several folks have asked about making donations to geekhack to help with upkeep, hardware upgrades, etc.  Personally, I'd rather provide something tangible in exchange instead of just accepting donations.  

So, I came up with the idea of providing geekhack.org email addresses to members for a one-time donation of $20.  These would be forwarded to any of your currently-owned email addresses.  You'd have dibs on @geekhack.org, of course.

If you are interested, just send me a PM.

Could I select something else than my username, provided that no user has that username?

Well, I guess I could use another email addy beside the 5 - 6 ones I already have.  PM sent! =P

Hmm...  I've got plenty of Email addresses.

I'll PM you with another offer.  If you sign this "Forever Geekhack, iMav" and send it along with my key order the $20 is sure to improve my kid's math grades.  Your avatar scares the s*** out of him.

Sure.  What I will probably do is make sure the name you use is then put on the list of unavailable GH usernames (to avoid confusion with future members).

Don't really need another email address.. But maybe you can add a paypal donation thingy in the header or footer of the site so people can just donate a few bucks? :)

That would make my wife happy.  She's been bitter since the upgrade.  :)

Several members have already had their @geekhack.org addresses set up.  

If you are interested, send me a PM and we can get you squared away.

iMav would be possible to use the money unspent on the Round Three to pay this service?

I'm refering to the message that tells this: You have got $21.00 in your account.

I would hope that it would at least last as long as this website does...

Nothing that you'll get in writing.  :)

Seriously though...you'll have it as long as I am capable of providing it to you.  (geekhack and all my domains, etc are in my will and will be passed on to someone else competent if I meet an early death...so perhaps even longer then I can provide)

iMav, when will this 'donation' end? I plan to get one and throw in my support for the site, but I won't be getting any balance in Paypal until the end of June (since putting money in is expensive! damn you PP fees)..

It's open ended.  I have not reason to set a deadline.

I'm open to having a "Premium" type emblem next to a users name saying they've donated or just having a header at the top of the page for a donate button.

I have no use for an e-mail and I'm sure many other people might not either.

Minecraft I didn't much care for.  Dug straight down and it took me a while to get back up to sea level.


i blew a crater into a mountain...then filled the crater back up with around 5000 boxes of tnt...which i set off... and crashed the server.
