This site has been so useful to me. I'd hate to see it go or even change a bit. It feels warm and comfy as it is, please do not change anything ! 8-)

edit: Thanks Neko !

The work you've done with hosting this for so long, and organising all the repository is more appreciated than you can possibly imagine. Many of us would be lost without this forum, and our machines would be a lot less useful too. Even if you do a hamei and start compiling everything yourself, the forum is still needed to discuss bits and ask for pointers and advice.

I'll send a donation over as soon as I can. Not currently at home with access to my main PC as I type this. However contributing towards this place is the least I can do.

I have to manually add the names to the group when I see the notifications come in and a couple have come in marked as "Anonymous" by the system. If anyone got missed that needs the badge just send me an IM and I'll fix it. Thanks much!

And yes, I'm serious about selling the Crimson. I never got around to fixing the power supply, so it's best to pass it on and let someone else have a go at it. I do plan on keeping my Onyx2 for now though. :)

Donation made. 8-)
I would hate to lose the site. Nekochan Net and nekonoko have been great.
Without this site I would have never been able to get my Personal Iris, Indigo, and Indy up and running again.

Thanks much everyone! I've disabled the plugin for now as we're received enough donations for the time being.

I hope this site doesn't go, the software and wealth of information on these machines is priceless. Otherwise SGI stuff would be more like most other old systems, not much working software, not much guidance.

I am afraid there is also a path of no resistance: shutting down the site. This happened to too many sites in the past. And we all don't want this happen.
If I have to pack up the site and move somewhere else and deal with a completely new infrastructure/support regimen, it makes a good stepping off point for me. Let someone else have some fun.

I'm not threatening anything - I really wouldn't mind that outcome after 14 years of keeping the site alive. Maybe it's just time to pass the torch. :)
Thank you for providing this site for such a long time. I am very happy if you do so in the future, but if you feel better if someone else is doing this foetz and I are ready to take the torch.

I won't let it go away completely no matter what - I'd definitely pass it on to you and foetz if it came to that. Thanks much!

Pete do you mind me asking who you're buying your Megapath circuit from? How many IP addresses do you get with that? I assume you need at least three, one for each of the two nameservers and one for the site itself? I'm CTO for the website soyouvebeendumped.com and we've always run it out of various ISP's datacenters, and it's always been a nightmare, I'd dearly love to run it from my basement the way you've always run this happy little insane asylum... :mrgreen:

Thanks Neko, I think we're all thankful both for the current site, and the fact that it'd also hopefully continue even in the unfortunate event of you stepping aside.

Should funds dry up in the future, let us know when the Donate button is made available again. I want a nice, purple name to match my Indigo2 :)

Although I haven't been active here for quite a few years, this site has a lot of information that can only be found here. I couldn't help but donate, since I still commonly find some useful posts here.

Dunno about Pete, but my T1 is ultimately Megapath (it's actually via DSL Extreme via COVAD). I get 16 IPs, though three are reserved including one for the T1 router. I use Netsol as the nameserver for Floodgap, though I used to run it locally. I imagine the business DSL/business Ethernet deals are similar.

That said, if I didn't have a need for home monitoring, I'd probably buy a slice and run it off of that.
