I finally got a good deal on a new hard drive for the machine which hosts (this mail list) and other classic computer related sites. The
new hard drive is 160gb, and cost 99 bucks plus tax... $110.00 total. So, if
anyone cares to donate to help defray the cost of the machine for classiccmp,
I'd appreciate it. You can mail donations to me, or paypal I don't want to get more money than the drive & memory
costs, so if donations cover it I'll tell the list right away so no more
donations come in.

Also, I need to get some more memory for the machine too - it's swapping
sometimes. However, I need to get down to the datacenter and pop the hood to
verify how many slots it has, how many are currently full, etc. I am sure it
takes PC100 or PC133 memory though. My guess is I'll be looking to buy two
512mb panels, or just one, not sure till I see the slots. Fortunately, memory
is cheap these days of that type anyways. I'll let the list know memory cost
when I find it out.

Why the extra space? Well, I have a LOT of stuff to put online that hasn't
made it to the ftp side of yet. Plus, I'm housing
and, plus I just acquired the domain and plan on putting
a lot of stuff there.
