LAME Appreciation Month
This month (until 8th September) is LAME appreciation month and what better way to show gratitude than to reward the developers of LAME? I am pretty sure that most people on Hydrogen Audio have used LAME in one way or the other. llustrate (dBpowerAmp) will match donations from Hydrogen Audio dollar for dollar, dig deep your donation counts x2!!


Hydrogen Audio Donation Total:  $1336  (excluding double up)
Illustrates x2 Double Up:  $1336

Donation Total: $2672


The majority of donations contained a message thanking and encouraging work done by the Lame team!

Donation Submissions Are Now Closed

The small print:
[span style='font-size:8pt;line-height:100%']
When making your payment, give your Hydrogen Audio name (in the additional details) if you wish for your name to appear on the list of donors,

Only paypal donations are accepted,

The donation is one without strings, it is not an expectation of future work, the LAME developers are free to spend the donation individually on items of their own choice,

LAME developers did not instigate this donation, but are very happy that people value their work. Final percentage of donation each developer will receive has already been worked out,

Donations received late after the cut off date (at the top) will be returned to the donor.

Illustrates maximum double up donation is $1500 (example HA raise $800 we will add another $800 giving a total donation of $1600)[/span]

That might be something you could usefully share.

Just so people know this isn't silly.

Cheers,

I will leave that to the LAME developers, the decision is theirs if they wish to divulge those details.

Repartition is planned to be an equal split between four main active developpers, except if they refuse it.

Just out of curiosity (and since this thread is about them anyway): who are the four main LAME developers anyway?

I know about Gabriel, Robert and Takehiro. Who is the fourth one?
Over thinking, over analyzing separates the body from the mind.

For how good 3.97 is looking to be and the amount of use I get out of lame in general, this is worth a donation.

who came up with that event?
--alt-presets are there for a reason! These other switches DO NOT work better than it, trust me on this.

It is not a yearly event, rather a one off.

The matter is not a country being allowed or not. The problem is that I don't have an international credit card

Done.

For the amount of CDs I have encoded with LAME, this is the LEAST I could do.

Yes that is correct (here in the Netherlands that is also possible). However, it seems the only way you can activate your account is by giving your credit card information..
