Antville Server Fund?

Sorry for being anxious, but is there any update on the issue? I.e. when will the box be bought? :-)

Laut meinen Infos

Ist der Server noch nicht bestellt, da man auf eine höhere Spendensumme hinarbeitet, um ein besseres Gerät kaufen zu können. Ein update des Kontostandes wäre wirklich nett :-)

Re: Antville Server Fund?

I've been sick lying in bed, which has delayed everything. Now I'm waiting for offers, which I'm expecting for Monday or Tuesday. Which is when I'll order the server.

Since donations have pretty much stalled we'll be settling for a cheaper model than I hoped (i.e. not dual processor capable, but fast and with plenty of RAM).

It's certainly possible, but I'm not going to do the cheerleading.

We could do it like this: Once you've gotten the offers, you could pick the one you really want (dual proc, raid, etc.). Then we can evaluate how much more money we need. Everybody stopped giving because the 3.000,- € announced in the first posting are reached now. If there would be a new number, people would start sending money in again, I guess.

Re: Re: Antville Server Fund?

I'm not going to do that, I already sank too many days into this. I'm not unhappy with the hardware we'll get.

OK

The proposal was just for the case that you would have had to settle with a sub-optimal solution. Thanks for the work!

Re: Re: Antville Server Fund?

There is no fixed sum we need. There's only cheaper technology and more expensive one, and service contracts that are more or less comprehensive and long-running. We could easily spend 6000 Euro or more without overspending, but we can also do with the 3000 we have.

Re: Re: Antville Server Fund?

i dont know nothing about the possible different results if you buy a cheaper or a more expencive what-ever-you-need , but im afraid it`s difficult to get more money later .

Re: Re: Antville Server Fund?

I agree with frankai and support gHacks comment above. I think it will be possible to raise some additional money if needed. But we should know how much. Its much easier if we have a specific number as a target. I'd assume, that an additional 10 % should be possible within a couple of days.
