Hard drives are crashing, the server is slow... what to do?


I was just looking at the offering plate and the TPF details page, and I was SHOCKED to see that they've had only 18 donations in the last 12 months for a grand total of $576.

There are probably 50 of us logged in at any one time. If we each gave only 10 bucks, we'd come close to doubling the annual donation. If we each gave a significant donation, we could blow that number out of the water!

Imagine how much money perlmonks has saved you or your company, either in saved time, better solutions, or consultants you didn't have to hire.

I dream of a perl monks server with a nice shiny new RAID.

Update: Since a lot of folks wonder what to donate for, maybe we could set up an informal RAID fund? We could just make donations and add a note that says 'For Perl Monks RAID fund.'

BTW, I would never ever ever insist that they spend my donation on something I suggested. They're the ones administering the site, so they should pick how to spend the money.

Update: A large part of my motivation for this post was confusion between and is hosted by pair networks, who generously maintain the hardware. is generously hosted by jcwren, and it recently suffered a hard drive failure. I don't know if there is a way to donate to

Another Update: Hey! Stop up-voting this post!
