Thanks to all who have already donated :-)
Due to this massive amount of users (we are really lucky with that) our servers are mostly totally overloaded. That means, the main page, which is on the same server as the ISOs and so on is not available. The little server we're currently providing doesn't have enought power for providing a good service for all users. The main page can not be visited, the ISOs can not be downloaded and the Update Manager (Repository) can not be used anymore if the server is overloaded. We are aware our users want to be up-to-date via the Update Manager and we can not offer this with this server. While the last releases we already tried to catch the traffic by blocking the availability to download other Snowlinux ISOs. And we know it will not help while the upcoming releases.
This is the reason why we decided to arrange a new server. We are aware how much power the new server has to provide, but we also know how expensive it will be.
We need a machine with the following hardware:
100 GB hard disk
8 GB of memory
A server with these requirements cause an amount of 43 USD per month and 523 USD per year.
It only makes sense to be able to pay the server 1 year in advance.
What will happen
What will happen with these people who donated money? The donors will be announced here.
Please help us to pay the new server for one year.
A donation would help a lot.
