The Gentoo Wiki Fundraiser

Due to the recent surge in bandwidth brought on by the many links to "HOWTO Install GoogleEarth with wine" on various websites from around the world including http://digg.com and http://rootprompt.org the wiki's traffic has increased from 12,000 to 20,000 visitors per day. Even after this article left the front page of these sites the traffic remained. Due to this the wiki will be raising funds to upgrade the current hardware to meet this new demand.

Although Gentoo Wiki has a Google banner it continues to bring in less money than the current server costs ($249.00 monthly). We are running this fundraiser to add the following hardware upgrades:

Current bandwidth usage is roughly 300GB / 1000GB monthly. The addition of a second server will increase this to 2000GB.

These upgrades will require a total cost of $2040 for 1 year of operation.

If you include your wiki login when donating you will receive a snazzy donator badge for your user page (more details coming soon).

Additionally I am offering 1 year of free web hosting from my little hosting company (http://thrashcorp.com) to anyone who donates $50 or more during this fundraiser. If you wish to receive this offer please email me at mikevalstar@thrashcorp.comfor additional details.


We would like to thank everyone in advance for their support.
