Master Server Fund Raiser Update

Postby Quu » Wed Aug 13, 2003 11:41 am

Total gathered so far is $433.35 and hardware (I have not updated my web site yet... been to busy while at home, and can't at work)
Current Hardware Donations
3Ware 8 channel raid controller card
8 x 160 gig hard drives


So far the donators are
Daniel Wang
Walter Scott
Vlad Pohnert
Corbo Bash at Otakon (I wuv all you guys)
Matt Pyson
Me (of course ^_^... the money that Otakon is reimbursing me for expenses, like shipping and postage, there I will roll into this)


If anybody wants to donate hardware, we still need :
CPU (I might be able to use a spare 850 Socket-A K7, but only if I get a Socket-A motherboard)
Motherboard (I am going to try to get one with a 64-bit pci slot... so this will proabably need to be purchased instead of donated, worse case, I have a spare Via KT333 based motherboard)
Ram ( 256+ meg of DDR ram... I have no spare ram)
9 external 5.25" bay Case (need a case to hold the drive cages)
650 Watt power supply (I have a 400W spare... depends if it will work)
CD-Rom (mainly for installing the operating system... anything simple)
Small system Hard Drive (a new 20-40 gig hard drive for the operating system... I don't want to use a used hard drive here, just in case)
1000BT net card (gigabit eithernet card... I have one in my editing machine I could move over if need be)
Video Card (nothing fancy... and hell... if I get a motherboard with video built in I won't need it... otherwise I have some old PCI video cards)
8 x Hot Swap Removable ATA-133 5.25" drive cage (for the raid)
1394 FireWire Card (if it is not built into the motherboard)

We are so close... I am going to wait until Monday before I start purchasing equipment, incase anybody else wants to donate hardware (so there is no duplication of stuff)

I wish to thank the entire AMV community for the support they have shown

no... the hard drives i have learned long ago, are not good to use in a mission critical location if they are used...

Thank you for the offer, but for the master archive I am going to keep all brand new hard drives.... now if you want to send a spare hard drive... for me personally (linux computer) you may... but it won't be for the master archive

I have a couple of 60 GB hard drives that may or may not work, if you want to try and salvage them yourself :D
I have no idea how to use this new forum.
