Thanks so much for your donation! It'll really help us out in our effort to make the site become that much better.
What is our Goal?
There are very few PowerPC Mac archive websites out there. They all provide links to the original software company's website. When that company pulls that link from their server, it is no longer accessible unless you can hunt it down via a torrent or other form of file sharing. We change that - files are backed up to our server to ensure they will always be online, and always here. No need to hunt down a torrent. The problem with this is, we are hosting it ourselves and doing so uses tons of our resources. We would like to cut down and we hope that the donations will be able to contribute a huge portion of this to keep the site online.
Keep the website Online
We think it's possible, and we will fight with whatever we have to keep it there. We host our own stuff - no 3rd party does. Just us.
We use a server packed with dual AMD Opteron processors that have dual cores. This is no slouch of a server, but as we expand, we need more and more power. Using this server currently costs us about $40 per month to run. Nice server, just is getting costly to run. :(
find more software to archive
We have software on here that people have heard about - Webkit, Skype, VLC, Spotify, and so on. There is other software we have yet to discover. We want to be the biggest archive for just PowerPC.
Why does this matter? There are some pretty cool tools out there nobody's heard of - ex. FastIcns. This lets you make .png files of icons for a project of some sort. We have to go discover them!
