Aaron Bockover  RALEIGH, NC
Since leaving Novell in January, 2011, I have paid for all of the hosting and domain name costs for the Banshee Project out of pocket, totaling about $1,500.

While I love this project I started, cherish the years I worked on it actively (2005-2011), and am grateful to the scores of wonderful people that have made it what it's become, I really cannot justify paying for hosting out of pocket any more.

I would like to raise funds to cover hosting for the next year while leaders of the project put in motion a transition plan for more stable funding or hosting.

Banshee is hosted on a Linode instance that currently costs $37.45 a month and incurs annual domain name costs of around $100: banshee.fm, getbanshee.com, getbanshee.org, banshee-project.org.

As a thank you, all non-anonymous donors will have their names displayed on the Banshee web site for supporting its hosting.

as someone who runs a web-hosting business by myself since 15 years of age, where do you go to pay 100/year for domains? If you don't reach your goal, I sometimes host open software free. chris[at]evilpuma.com
