"We're gonna need a bigger boat ..."
6th Feb, 2009 at 10:08pm
 
Folks,

Around forty to fifty or so CDs have arrived over the past few weeks with more that I would like to order. However, I've halted adding these new CDs to the database for the time being because the SAM server is rapidly running out of storage capacity. In a nutshell, as the database is already teetering on the 200GB mark, room on SAM's dual RAID hard drives is currently limited.

This obviously means that I'm going to have to buy new hard drives to keep up with S.A.'s constant growth and expansion - which includes this Quarter's new CDs.

With the current uncertain economic climate, the (kind) donations towards the running costs of S.A. have dwindled somewhat of late. Whilst there is no obligation for any of you to help financially with the overheads that are involved in running S.A. (including the buying of new CDs), please bear in mind that S.A. is totally run by myself and funded out of my own, personal money. That and I don't make a penny for doing this.

In the meantime, there is admittedly a lot of music on the database which is currently going unplayed or yet to be added to the regular programming. So, I'm going to be concentrating on compiling even more playlists of mostly fresh material for you all to enjoy.

I'll update as and when I make progress.

Given that 1Tb drives are around £100 and you need 2 of them, if 10 of us donated £20 each, that should cover it.

So, I'll do mine today sometime. Who else?

So, do we have any other contributions yet or do we have to wait for the expanded playlist?
