Update! (from March 15th GMT) Only $2500 still needed!
Update #2 (from March 16th GMT) The goal has been reached! Thanks to everyone for helping out and making this a successful fund raising event!
Marco continues: "I will be driving the collection and purchase of the enclosure and drives. I'll set up a web page to track the donation status. If you'd like to make an anonymous donation just let me know and I will not print your name. Queries and paypal donations should go to slash at peereboom dot us. If you can't donate using paypal contact me off list and we'll work out a different payment method. If we raise more than the required amount I'll forward that cash to Theo.
The price of a fully populated PowerVault 220S with 4 hour on-site warranty is about $12500 USD including tax and shipping. Let me kick this off by donating $250 to this cause. A person that shall not be named donated a PERC4/DC RAID controller.
If OpenBSD is important to you this is the right time to step up and donate some of that hard earned cash. The folks in Europe can really make a difference due to the current Euro exchange rate. Let me stress that the CVS machine is the single most important infrastructure device for OpenBSD. The goal is to have this enclosure in Theo's hands before the hackathon so don't wait!"
If you want to help, paypal some money to slash at peereboom dot us, or you can use the OpenBSD ordering system. Be sure to mention its for the cvs machine.
