Why Support the website?

Current needs

BluWiki.org has a number of current needs, which your donations will directly support.

RAM Memory upgrade

  • I'm looking to increase Mother's Ram to 1GB from its current 512MB (PC3200 400Mhz, Non-ecc). Depending on available funds, we'll either purchase:
  • Crucial's PC4200 with ECC: 512MB x 2 sticks - $137
    • We would replace the two 256MB PC3200 sticks in the machine with these two 512MB PC4200 sticks, to make 1GB total.
  • Crucial's PC23200 without ECC: 512MB x 2 sticks - $68
    • If we bought these, we would add them to the two existing two 256MB PC3200 sticks already in the machine, to make 1GB total.

Power Bills

  • Believe it or not, but running the BluWiki server 24/7 adds about $20 / month to my power bills.
    • Power is currently being covered by my brother's company - DROdio Reality.

Internet Access

  • The Bluwiki server needs access to a T1, which costs about $400 / month.
    • Currently we're mooching off of DROdio Reality's T1, but I'm not sure how long that will last.

Donations

Donations of time

Most importantly, we need users (especially experienced Wikipedians) willing to donate their time to BluWiki. Currently, she is in need of much love and attention. Users willing to categorize user pages, fill out the help section, and contribute other misc. structure to the wiki will quickly gain karma.

Donations via PayPal

Currently, the easiest way to donate money through paypal is go to http://www.paypal.com, and send the money to sam@odio.com.

Donations by mail

You can mail your donation to:

www.BluWiki.org
Attn: Sam Odio
1215 Wertland St. #C13
Charlottesville, VA 22903
