QUOTE (L.D)
I donated

Though I have some questions (concerning the special title):

How do you know it was me? If you go by email, I use a different one for PayPal.

Should I post the title here or should I email/PM it and if the last one, then who should I contact?

You should have gotten a thank you note from me via email when you donated, you can just reply to that email and tell me what your forum name is and the custom title you'd like.

We're in the home stretch, the donation meter on the homepage has changed color to yellow as of the last donation, only $436 to go!

Current total: $1064.30

Thanks to everyone who has donated so far, it's much appreciated. I'm working on finalizing the specifications of the server we're going to purchase so that we can get it ordered as soon as the drive is complete.

*click* Done.

Finally did like I said I would but did paypal rather than a check, so threw a little extra on top to make sure paypal doesn't cut in too much.

And with Frosty's donation, we're almost there.. Only $179.50 until we reach our goal. Thanks again to all of the benefactors who have helped make this drive a success. Your support is very much appreciated -- I anticipate ordering the new server this week.

I know I am not around much anymore, but if I added up all the hours I have spent on DSF it would rival tv. And I pay 60 bucks a month for cable, the least I can do is give you guys ten dollars.

I have always felt that you guys do a great service to the SR community, you give us geeks a place to hang out and play, or talk about SR. Thank you.

We're getting there, though donations have slowed way down in the past few days. Only about $85 before I officially close the donation drive and order the new server.

The donation drive is officially completed! Thanks to everyone for the donations, we've reached (and slightly exceeded) our $1500.00 goal, so it's time to go shopping for the new server.

I'll post a note on the server specs once it's ordered, since I know some of you are curious.

Thanks again for all your support, the response to the donation drive has been great and we really appreciate it.

Server has been ordered. For the curious:

Dell SC1425, 1U chassis
2 x Intel Xeon 2.8GHz
2GB DDR2 RAM
1 x 160GB SATA 7200RPM HDD
3 year Dell Warranty

And I'll be ordering a second 160GB HDD for redundancy when the server arrives and I can verify the model of drive in it for matching purposes. I didn't want to waste donation money on an overpriced drive from Dell, though I did get the extended warranty which I usually avoid. I'd rather get the extended warranty than have to do another donation drive if the server fails in a couple of years.

Dell was running a deal, $200 off the list price of the server and they throw in a 2nd processor for free. I couldn't beat this deal anywhere, even on cheap generic hardware.

This server should easily handle our needs for years to come.
