The Pages are Live

There is anew page for the SPONSOR MAGAZINE PROJECT fundraiser publication – GOOD ORDERLY DIRECTION.

There is a free preview of the direction summary.

The book is available through our private page.

The SPONSOR MAGAZINE SUPPORT PAGE is up for viewing. 

The full artwork for the previously mentioned TOOLS POSTER is on that page for free download.

Links to ALL our projects are available from the page.Image

Poster?

I’ve got information on a “Tools” poster from Sponsor Magazine. Doing the booklet as a fundraiser, but if people want to get a poster, I can set up a download page for the original art. Then anyone who wants one can print out the 20″x30″ through their local photo shop, WalMart photo center, or whatever. 

No money involved with Sponsor Magazine, but – I’m going to put the poster on my living room wall. Not subtle.

Information will be on the Facebook page:  http://facebook.com/SponsorMagazine

The preview is 72dpi and about 900k. The full version is 300dpi and about 7Megs. Big download.

The Sponsor Magazine Fund Raiser

It will be the book form of GOOD ORDERLY DIRECTION: THE PROGRAM OF ACTION.

This is a document that has been circulating for about two years and breaks the Twelve Steps into the individual Actions necessary to ‘work’ each step.

The summary version will be made available in the next few days and will be published in Sponsor Magazine #4, now in edit.

The full version booklet will be put on Amazon and a Create Space page as the fund raiser. 

The full document will be made available as a free download under Create Space sharing. After the next domain fees get paid. If they don’t get paid, the whole project goes away.

The booklet will cost $7, almost half of which will go to sponsormagazine.org – less when the book is purchased through Amazon.com.

Cover is in design and the last edits are being applied – NOT by me (you will be happy to know).

Begging hasn’t worked. I still think there is value in keeping the website, the downloads, the magazine (print and download), the Recovery Reader (print and download), the podcasts and other projects alive. Maybe I will be proven wrong.

Middle of August

Okay, got the notice today for the domain name registry on the website. My previous request for help resulted in a $20 donation, which covers two months of hosting service. If the project can cover its own cost of operation – we’re talking $45 for domains and hosting – by early August. $20 from last round, total of $115 in the past six years. I need to cover increasing costs from a fixed income and the project may need to go if it can’t cover its own costs.

Donation page at http://podcast.sponsormagazine.org, scroll to the bottom.

The new app is up, so download it while you can. “Good Orderly Direction” is going through one more round of edits before final public release.

Tablet, yes.

I downloaded the Meeting format app on the Android tablet. I don’t have access to an iPad, but it does work on the Android 4.1 system… and the larger format means it is even easier to read.

I’m wondering if I should update the app to reflect a re-presentation of the original podcast idea. Short, limited presentations. Like mini-series. Let me stew on that for a bit. I’m thinking of the three part history of the Oxford groups by Jay S. from the original ANONYMOUS REVIEW podcast as a starter.

After all, everybody gets to hear this stuff for the first time.

Wow!

The App has been up for 36 hours and had 31 downloads. I guess some people do respond to the posts and emails I send out.

I’m going to expand the app and refine some of the coding – downloaders will get free update notices.

I hope it serves the need.

Well, phooey!

The original host with which we had the Sponsor Magazine Pocket Format for smartphones only allowed five people to download the app, and that limit was passed a while ago. If you tried to get it and could not – apologies.

The new service allows as many people as may be interested to download the app. The easiest way is to go to this URL from the device on which you want to install the app (iOS or Android, I’ll have to hear about other platforms).

You can also use the handly little QR block, shown below.

Enjoy. (I hope.)

Now to find out if it works on tablets of the iOS and Android variety…

Happy to report a $20 donation, making $115

Happy to report a $20 donation, making $115 out of five year of production.

One of my responders said “If you need money, just say so.”

I thought I was giving it my best whine. I have put over $2500 into the project over the past five-six years. I can’t do it now. I need money to keep the project going.

The link shows the monthly support subscription button, and the one time donation button and the whole list of projects I’m trying to keep going.

Thanks to the people who took the time

Thanks to the people who took the time to respond. As a result we have some new things to share with you at http://podcast.sponsormagazine.org/announce.html. And go to the UPDATE link near the top of the page.

We also have started an appreciation page to thank the people who have allowed this project to move foreword. Both pages have links to ALL of the SPONSOR MAGAZINE projects.

And someone told me they were surprised to find out there was a MEETING FORMAT App for iOS and Android devices. There is. Click there. Go there. Get it. Free.
