OK... As nice as the new server is, there are some issues with the VMWare, the hardware, and Server 2003 that are chafing my ass. To this end, I'm making the same request of the PF people that I am of the others that I host web pages/servers/etc. for at no cost.

I want to build a new server with different parts that will run the ESXi bare metal VM software so there won't be any more crap minor incompatibility issues that I'm having right now. To that end, I'm requesting that anyone who has a few bucks go to my web page and use the donate button to drop some cash into the kitty.

My story web page

Thanks in advance to any/all who donate. I'll try to update the kitty value as funds roll in.

Current total: $50.00

I've added the Donate link back to the forum links, pointing to this thread. Hopefully it will get enough attention.

Have you considered setting up a ChipIn widget? This might encourage more donations by better visibility. If you set one up, let me know and I can add the code to the forum header.

This is the server for PF's hosting (and others) that I'm trying to upgrade.

I'll see about generating one next time I log into PayPal and send you the code.

Thx

if I had known you needed to upgrade the server Hikaru I'd have just donated the full amount to it instead of getting my eyes fixed.
