Hey, my recent post here was mostly inspired by the original post in this thread.

I'd like to help get a good disk for PM. Is PM only one server or many? Does it or do they have hardware needs (like, would a RAID make PM more snappy)? Who normally pays for PM hardware upgrades? Can I send that person/people a wad/wads of unmarked bills? Can I urge others to do likewise?
