Probably quite a number of you read my recent node "Why I Still Pay (Part) of E2's Bills
". I also got a lot of /msgs and e-mail from people wondering how they can help.
Like I said in initial write-up, please use the Donation Box. I promise any funds that you donate will not go to buy circus animals, Oreo cookies, clown cars or fez hats. It all goes to pay E2's bandwidth bill.
But some of the readers were wondering about helping on a more basic level - with free hosting. To that end, nate and I have compiled of what we would need to host E2 somewhere else, somewhere....free.
Here's the specs: 14U of server space handles E2/Perl Monks/AnimeFu. We need a pipe that can handle 1.5 - 2 Mbps, preferably burstable. It'd be really nice if it's located in the Bay Area, 'cuz then the travel time for the machines will be much shorter, but beggars can't be choosers. If you think that you can help, please /msg me (hemos). If you can only do 2U space, or you have a box that you want to offer - thanks, and I don't want to be ungrateful, but we need an environment with 14U and 1.5 - 2 Mbps.
