it's about €1200-1400 per year for the server (and backups).
Sent some money as well! What kind of hellish machine is being used here? Does deskthority really generate that much traffic? :D

A root server with 4 cpu cores, 16GB RAM and some storage should cost you less than 15 euros per month.

The current total is around 500 euro now. Total cost per year (hosting, backup, domain registration .net .org .com, dt award costs) is aprox 950 euro. There has been other donations before this event, I haven't kept track but maybe between 200 to 300 euro this year. There's still a little buffer left from the former club member contributions and donations from before 2019.

I'll post a list of donations and times afterwards so everyone can check if their donation is on the list.

All donators will get a DT Pro membership, I'll get to that tomorrow.

Didn't know DT was in financial trouble! As soon as I'm back from Cambodia I'll register for membership again :).

Deskthority doesn't have a steady income anymore. The club helped in the past, but that's ancient history. We still have expenses though and so far they are covered by an absconding webwit just out of his good heart.

Hence I'm hereby asking for your support in the form of:

A) Put your forgotten or unused keyboards/keycaps/whatever on sale and give the proceeds to Deskthority (the buyer can pay directly to DT if you want)
B) Just give us the money!

Anything you give is used to keep Deskthority up and running (server and whatnot) and to purchase the (in)famous wingnuts for the annual awards.

Thank you for your support!

Done. I forgot to mention DT...Oh well. By the By, how much is that in Imperial?

I did the same. If everyone can give a little that would amount to a lot!

We now got aprox 1k EUR in donations! Together with existing funds, this means we've enough for over 1.5 years to cover our costs. Thanks everybody! Some donations were especially generous.

I've given all new donators DT Pro memberships, except a few where I couldn't link the donation to a DT account. PM me if you're one of those and want a DT Pro membership.

You can verify your payment here, if your amount and time isn't in the list, I've embezzled it!

Fine, donated. My kid will have nothing to eat for a week now, but a glass of water can be a decent supper as well.

Once again the wealth transfer goes from poor eastern European shithole to the wealthy kings of western Europe! All in the name of webwits' digital ducks collection...sigh.

P.S.: Could I get access to the super secret forum as well? My donation is (probably) the only one that came from Slovenia.

If anyone has any ideas for merch designs, this starving artist would be happy to use their graphic design knowledge to flesh out any ideas!

I don't post often but I like to see these old style web boards stay around. If there's any way I can help with the technical side of things let me know. I've been a Linux and BSD admin for well over a decade for a university and before that for their physics department. I'm also crazy enough to use a Linux desktop. :P
