Donations for new servers needed [English]

Hi all,

welcome to Snowlinux. :-)

Our main servers have a workload of 99%. To reduce the workload and reduce the danger of a server crash, we need a few more servers. These new servers are perfectly optimized for our needs. The monthly costs are about $200.

Much of these costs are paid out of our own pocket.  We aren't able to do this anymore. So we need to ask for your help :)

If you could/would like to support us, please donate here:
