    Just moved out and I'm still feeling it bro, it's a process that takes a bit when you were rushed to do it. I'll hopefully be back on my feet shortly. I just noticed now you are in the UK, but bro honestly there's no price for a donation to what is being done, I would have paid it if I have had it. :rockout:

    Hey all, sorry I've been dormant with replying :O

    I must say first and foremost, thank you all for getting involved, I wasn't sure my idea would come up so well as it has done, which is why I was going over it with scaminatrix, although he's kicked the idea in the ass to get it a move on, as has cheesy999 for making this thread and everyone who has donated!

    A big thank you goes out to all who have donated, I'll personally use the "thank you" button shortly :)

    I remember looking through the UK TPU Clubhouse thread, although I did it this morning, I ain't too sure who brought it up about building the donation rig, well the idea was that I'd be doing the building and OS tweaking, it's not yet set in stone who will though. I'm game for driving and dropping off in the UK, that I don't mind, even if it means personally collecting from donators, it all really depends on peoples situations I guess.

    For the people who have donated to the rig that will be donated, I'm not 100% set on how the certificate will go about, I'm not sure how I want it to go about yet! I've idea's, just nothing set... One idea is that if we have a perspex side window, whoever can engrave, if possible all donators and the engraver gets their names engraved, all donators get a printed certificate to show their appreciation of what they donated and who they made happy :)

    That will come to fruition in time though :D

    This first donation rig will also define on more possible donations to deserving and well needing people, based on community support and happiness from the receiving end of our community, hopefully we'll have a lot more in store in the upcoming future! :)

    Again, it can't be stressed enough, thank you all so much for everyone's involvement so far, I'm really proud of everyone for being apart of this!

    Well I have suggested a family I know to donate too, whether that has been accepted in principle or not I don't know I think so as it has been mentioned in the thread and I have a PM with Scam going... :confused:

    If so then they are a 45 minute drive from me and I see them most weekends so taking it to them wouldn't be an issue, infact I would love to see the looks on their faces, also I am fine to donate a case, well I don't have a spare so I was going to buy a cheap one still looking atm

    I think I may have a Xigmatek HDT S1283 that can be donated. got it sitting in my back up rig cooling a AMD64 3000+@2.7Ghz. I think I may know where the s775 pushpins are.

    I dont mind giving it up to cool the Q6600 but im gonna need a cheapo stock socket 939 cooler in return as ive already destroyed or thrown most of my 939 stuff away

    Updated post with more parts + minor modifications.

    if you know for sure it can be donated pm me to confirm it and get yourself moved out of the possible donations category to the donated category.

    I'm new here...

    I stumbled on this thread, and thought it fabulous...

    I know I'm new, but, if I might, make a few suggestions...

    1) A build thread or a wiki or something to separate the comments from the parts list.

    2) Paypal address for those of us states-side that want to donate.

    I toast you all! Great site, great forums, and most of all, great people! :rockout:

    1: that isn't needed just yet, maybe when we get onto another page

    2:you'll have to ask scaminatrix about paypal unless you want all your money spent on neon lights

    I'm going to look into that now, I've been aware of it and from what I know of it so far they seem the type of people who could actually benefit really well from this, also it appears to me as a valid and very deserving couple who would actually make this donation kick start more future ones, simply because of the situation they're in and what we can offer as a whole community! :)

    It's not yet been set in stone as I keep refering to, although after reading I'll try and get back to you within 2 days at the latest and let you know first hand as with everyone, whether or not they will be the first to receive the donation... Personally, I'll give you a smile to reflect on :)

    If they aren't that far a drive from you that's not too bad then mate, given that for the record, if I'm the one building it (which is looking like it as was planned originally), I'll have to organise coming down to yours, picking you up and if we have a cam-corder, have you handing it over? I've idea's running round my head that I've lots to choose from but I want the best ones to sprout :) -- We'll all have to have our input on this one, by that I mean not just myself, scam and cheesy-'cakes'-999, but all the donators and viewers too!

    For the case, if you're willing to spend to donate, that will be very generous of you, as to which will be stated among the certificates made! As one company always states: Every little helps!

    That would be really nice of you to do so Freedom mate, if you need a swap for that for the donation rig I can always send you my socket 939 fan? It's in this thread "Israar's little cluster" although I'm after getting rid of it for £5, that would be dropped for this situation :)

    You will have to get back to me on what you think of that though, again thank you for the offer :)

    Hey Keith, it's great that you stumbled on this thread and how it made you think :)

    Welcome aboard one of the best, as most would say, or how I would state it; the best community around on the internet! I for one would like to hope you have a good stay here for the long running! Also, thank you for the suggestions too, they're much appreciated!

    1: As cheesy said, that isn't a huge necessity as of yet, once the donation flows properly and goes mainstream then we will consider this as a future opportunity, you will be duely noted for this too!

    2: Paypal donations is appreciated although if we did this, I'll have to think about it properly. I'm not sure if scam has a dedicated Paypal account like myself, although like I said, it will have to be thoroughly thought about and people will have to be informed of current balance, donators and when and what the balance gets put towards.

    Again, thank you very much for your addition, it's really appreciated and will be taken in as a future option! Hope you're enjoying your time here so far at TPU! :rockout:

    Cakes just sounded nice and when I was thinking of cheesy, cheese cakes came to mind, jsut a random though I had that sounded nice haha! :) -- No personal insult or anything, so if you was taking it as one I appologise :)

    Well, youtube could be an option, unless we get a decent server or so to host all of our recordings for seperate downloads? Depends on how large the files are to be fair, if you're up for starting the wiki page mate, by all means go ahead and keep this as the response thread.

    oh no nothing wrong with cakes was just wondering how it came to be

    for the video i'll ask w1zz tommorow if we can use tpu's servers for the video - its only forum members who would view it

    i'm not too sure about the wiki though , i've never made one before - but how hard can it be?

    That's good then, I don't like to insult good and undeserving people, although I can be extremely random at times, so you're not the first to ponder on things like that :roll:

    That'll be great if W1zzard allows us, although if he does it would be nice if we contributed something to him, just to help out I guess :)

    As for wiki's, I've never created one although I wouldn't say it would be hard to do, it seems more like a template and go kind of thing, if you get me? Although I'm off for some good pillow hugging now, I'm in good need of a solid kip!

    i've just realized, we might of got the parts for the entire rig, i'll do a sort through tommorow and update the post with anything we don't have and we'll plan from there

    Edit: w1zz says that using youtube would both be easier and would allow us to embed the video into the thread, however he will host the video if we really want him too. therefore i think we'll be using youtube unless youtube has any particular problems with the videos you film

    Fantastic stuff guys, good to see it coming along nicely :)
    As NdMk2010 lives close to the potential donatees, it would save a lot of time and hassle if we all shipped our bits to him (he's proficient in the working of computering providings lol he's cleverer than his avatar suggests!!) and he can crack on with the installing, etc.

    @ djkib:
    Thankyou for your offer, it's much appreciated :) There is actually already a fund set-up in Mark's name, the details and link can be found in the first post of this thread. If you can help out with donating money, it would be most appreciated by Mark's family if you could slide a donation towards the Computer Lab they want to sort out for a disadvantaged local school.
    Thanks again djkib :respect:

    @ qubit:
    Would it be possible to ship the installation CD for Windows to NdMk2010?

    i've just done an update on the post, we have everything for the PC and a monitor - the only parts we did not get are a keyboard and mouse - i am however sure the donatee's already have these as if they did not have these they wouldn't be able to use any computer and they do at least own a very old one

    if really needed i could donate a keyboard or mouse but everything i have was taken out of service for a reason- less then 2 week bat life on mouse and if i remember correctly there might be a key on the keyboard that doesn't work

    Sooooooo, the question is who is going to build it?

    I teleport there from the US every morning through a super-secret application. I live in the US, not close to Nevada, but I can pay to ship it there as my contribution.

    Na, TPU is based in John Malkovic's head :laugh:

    I think NdMk2010 is the best bet, it's closest to the donatee and saves time, any potential hassle and shipping/long journeys.

    If your really want to build it but it was gonna be delivered in person so we have to ship all the components to nevada and then the pc back - thats a lot of shipping (about £20 a componant which works out at about ($40) and i'd imagine about a $100 to ship it back

    i think what i'm saying is its probably not worth it unless your gonna fit those flame-throwers we were talking about either here or the uk forums i can't remember
