    So I was thinking... it's the holidays, and we're all out there buying presents for loved ones (and, in some cases, not-so-loved ones), so why not buy our friend SDN a present too? It only costs $20 to become an angel ($7.50 to become a donor if you're strapped for cash) and the extra support would help prevent crashes (which lead to panic attacks and mental breakdowns) like we all experienced the other day. So I think we should see how many people we can get to jump on the bandwagon and sign up to be an SDN angel or donor by New Year's day. All you have to do is click on the link at the very top of the page and have a credit card or checking account (you will have to sign up for paypal if you don't already have an account, but it's free). Who's with me? DO IT!

    I wonder if it is possible to pay to be an angel, but to keep the donor icon. I like that one a lot better! :p

    Probably they donated twice, once at each level. Does the donation expire? I'm planning to donate an the angel level if it ever does.

    What? No dual dual-core Opteron?

    LOL! The Tyan 2895 is a great board. I've got a K8WE system with 2GB RAM running my web, email, FTP, etc. serving duties.

    Enjoy it!

    On another note... Is this really useful?:

    it's the cover art for "Heart Failure", a book whose online version is linked to in the useful links sticky on the first page. it's a very interesting book which can be read in a couple ways: once just following an MS3 through his year, and a second time through really reading all the appendices. those appendices easily double the length of the main text, and each section is well-referenced. (MPH work, perhaps?)

    anyways, i highly suggest going to check it out after finals are over. i ended up buying a copy of it off of Amazon to have a hard copy...
