Following on from the end of the last donation drive and to keep a cleaner thread this time I am going to update the balance in this top post from now on. Thanks again to all those of you who have contributed already for making the recent changes happen.
You can still find the Donation Drive 2010 thread in the Announcements Forum.
So far this year we have paid for:
* Bluray media for archiving sites with our new NAS
* A case to store the above media properly
Also we have received the following hardware via donations:
* HP DL385 G7
* 500 GB 7.2k WD SATA disk drive
Currently we are saving for, in order of priority:
* Money for a hosting donation to OSUOSL who host our servers and pay for our power and bandwidth
* One 500 GB disk for our new backup NAS (following a donation of a 500GB disk, we need a matching one)
* Some NAS to go to some people helping out in various places in the forums and wikis
* Hardware for NAS-Central competitions!
* Some money to put away in case of a server related emergency
We carry over the balance at the end of the last donation drive which was £17.98. When donations come in I'll note them below as soon as I am able (typically I update this once every 1-2 weeks).
