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. However he's moving offices - so I'm not sure if this arrangement will continue. --Sam Odio 09:48, 29 September 2006 (EDT)
  • 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. (Again, because of the whole moving thing) --Sam Odio 09:48, 29 September 2006 (EDT)
