New server storage covered thanks to dedicated community members!

New server storage covered thanks to dedicated community members!

Only a few days ago, we launched our very first Pledgie campaign to cover the highly needed server storage upgrade. In less than 4 days, dedicated community members surprised the HWBOT staff by collecting the necessary funds to cover the purchase of the storage allowing us to order the following parts:

4x 2GB DDR3 ECC

2x Samsung Spinpoint F4EG HD204UI 2TB

1x Intel Xeon 5506

1x Supermicro SNK-P0037P 1U cooler

2x Drive brackets for Dell R410


As you can see, the giving spirit of the community made us decide to free up additional funds to give our server an extra upgrade. This means: more pictures, faster points, faster site.

Once again, our thanks goes out to the community members supporting HWBOT!

Keep one Project or the another open on front page, wasnt able to contribute this time but will certainly try and donate whenever I have some extra funds, :)

Belgium Massman says:

We don't really want to put the weight of the hwbot finances on the shoulders of the community; wouldn't opening another project this fast look like hwbot trying to 'take away' money from the community?

Belgium jmke says:

that would only be thought if the money donated is not used for a purpose to increase the visible functionality of the HWBot website.

Yup, and when its 10-20-50$(more depending on the user) divided among a huge user base, the load is just shared and doesnt burden anyone at all.
