I guess I've been lurking around here long enough that I should add my two cents. I hope the goal is exceeded soon. I don't think the site or the hobby is dying, but there are so many incredible AMV's that it is intimidating for anyone who would like to try their hand at editing. Every year I see new and interesting work, and I enjoy most of them. Keep it up, There is still so much music, especially oldies, that are begging for a good AMV.
Where did you say I'm going?.... And what am I doing in a handbasket?

Hey Everyone!

Update time: We got another one!! ^_^

Just as I send out two more of the drives and have one more ready to ship on Monday, I have to order ANOTHER drive for ANOTHER $1000 donation! Not only that, we’ve almost hit the halfway point which means I will have to get the backup server really soon now. You guys are making this work for me. ;-)

We can do it! Keep going!! ^_^

I just don't have words to describe this awesomeness!
there's something truly amazing about just picking random numbers and going through random folders to watch some AMV that I've never seen before without actually knowing a thing before pressing play :D
(also, something truly terrifying for some videos)

Oh, and the playlists are entertaining. Though, I have not spend a lot of time on them yet

Got mine as well today! Not going to have much time to pour through it today, though. Probably this weekend.

Thanks!!

Hey Everyone!

Another day, another update, another hard drive I have to order because we got another $1000+ donation!! And not to be outdone, they donated $1300, well, just because they didn't want to be outdone! :D

And if you have been paying attention, yup, that's right, I have to buy a backup server with my own money! :shock: Case, CPU, RAM, OS drive, storage drives, the works!!

We are closing in on that final goal. Keep going! We can do it!! =^_^=

Wow, It's here already. That's one big hard drive........ not physically but in capacity. Now all I need is a few hundred hours of free time to check it out.
