The quick and dirty:
Feldgrau is about to embark on a major upgrade and we need your support. We need to raise $400 to cover the costs of a major upgrade to the Feldgrau server. Please consider sending a donation in any amount today or in the next week or so to help cover these costs.
Currently Feldgrau is located on a dedicated server in a managed location consisting of a PIII 600 CPU w/512 MB of Ram and (2) 9.1 GB SCSI harddrives. Both drives are at 92% capacity. Feldgrau has also been getting slower, the forum needs a major upgrade, and we are behind a few versions in our critical server software.
In order to address all of these issues we are migrating to a new server consisting of a P4 2GHz with 1 GB Ram and either (2) 36 GB SCSI or (2) 80 GB IDE harddrives. In the process we will be upgrading to a new operating system running the latest Apache, MySQL, and PHP versions (MySQL 5.0, PHP 5.x, Linux 2.6, and Apache 2.2).
These upgrades will dramatically improve the safety, security, storage, and functionality of all aspects of Feldgrau.
We are requesting your donations in advance of this migration to help offset the costs. Everything on Feldgrau will become faster, many new features will become available, our server space will greatly increase, our backup ability will dramatically improve, and the forum will be drastically updated and will become faster, safer, more secure, and easier to use.
Please consider helping us with this critical migration by sending us a donation!
Thanks for your support of Feldgrau.com and Feldgrau.net!
