  1. Why can’t new members join now?

    Please have him email me directly at b3groover@gmail.com
  2. Why is a Member Restricted From Posting Content?

    He should be able to send private messages now.
  3. Speakers for desktop computers

    I would get the IK Multimedia iLoud Micro Monitors. Huge sound, very small footprint.

    Is he able to post now?
  5. New DONATE button

    I know everybody is stressed out but the donations have been a bit slow lately. I could really use some help in the next few months due to losing all my music gigs. Thanks.
  6. New DONATE button

    No. PM me for the address.
  7. Hi friends, I am running a Kickstarter campaign for Bill Heid's latest release, It's A Living. I produced, engineered, mixed, and mastered this album and it's a goodun'. Bill is an absolute master and he's joined by two other grand masters; Randy Gelispie on drums and Perry Hughes on guitar. You may recognize this trio from Bill's other albums like Bop Rascal (a stone classic... if you don't have it, go get it). We're a bit behind so hopefully some of you can help out. Thanks! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/billheid/bill-heid-its-a-living-hammond-b3-soul-jazz
  8. New DONATE button

    Bumping. We're running behind this year.
  9. New DONATE button

    Yep. That's pretty much what I'm looking at. It sounds vain, but as a performer I don't think I can have a gap in my smile.

    Thank you everyone. It was a stressful last two weeks. Long story short, my dear departed father had a serious hang-up when it came to doctors and dentists and as such I never went to the dentist until I was 28 years old. I had a root canal done, which wasn't so bad considering I'd never been in my life. My teeth were pretty good. But then the dentist decided he wouldn't take our insurance anymore and never put a crown on it. Then we lost our insurance before I found another dentist. That was over 12 years ago. The tooth now needs to come out; it's half gone anyway. Pieces have been breaking off for years. It's going to be $600 to pull it. On Wednesday they treated me for gum disease, which thankfully isn't too advanced but that was $1800 out of pocket. We have insurance now through Medicaid but it covers the very bare minimum and my teeth need more than the basics. Once the tooth is pulled I have to decide whether to live with a big hole in my smile or get an implant. The implant will be between $3k and $4k depending on the work they need to do. YAY! So yeah... I've been stressing about the board funds. You guys took a weight off my shoulders. Thank you.
  11. Forum Secure?

    A small one, yes. But the server increased to $224 this year (from $209) and I did spend some money on renewing the domain, SSL, etc.
  12. Paul Secor Email

    PM sent.
  13. Forum Secure?

    Still have not found anyone to help me do it. I can't afford to pay anyone. We're not even getting enough donations to support the forum per month. I just paid $224 out of my own pocket for May.
  14. Where is Paul Secor .... ?

    Paul sent me a PM weeks ago saying he was leaving. In the 16 years that this board has been in existence, people have come and go. I never like to see long-standing members leave, but I'm not going to take time out of my busy life to try and convince them to stay. That's a dead-end. I found that out the hard way with a certain member who is now passed. I reviewed the thread in question after Paul messaged me and I honestly did not see how one could possibly construe what Jim wrote as a threat, unless English isn't one's first language. Paul even admitted in his PM to me that he didn't think Jim was going to travel to NY and hunt him down. So I really don't understand what the hubbub is about. I figured I'd just let things take their course rather than intervene. Perhaps I should've sent Jim a message, but are we not all adults here? If you have an issue with something that someone says, then say so, perhaps best in a private message. When they tell you that you are misinterpreting their intention, then take them at their word. Seems pretty easy to me. Nobody here is new to the internet. Sometimes the things we type are misconstrued. Sometimes we get offended by something someone states and often times they don't mean to be offensive. People think different. Such is life. I am rather disappointed in the personal attacks towards Jim in this thread. I don't think that is deserved at all and they certainly went far beyond what Jim is accused of towards Paul.
