Those of you who read my blog posts on the site will know that I've been spending some time planning for a replacement of Deeproot, the firewall machine for FUMBBL. The old hardware is approaching 10 years old which is older than I am comfortable with.

In order for this to happen, I will need some assistance from you to cover the costs of the hardware. While donations generally speaking cover most of the running costs to pay the bills, donation drives such as this one is needed to replace aging hardware.

While I don't want to set up game-breaking incentives, everyone who participates in this donation drive will receive a Deeproot icon on their overview pages (together with the standard gold supporter badge) to indicate their participation in this event.

Those of you who donated around the time of me posting the blog entries will also be considered part of the drive (let's call it february 1st or later) and be given the Deeproot icon as well.

This drive will be active for two weeks, starting today (ending on the 5th of March). At that point, I will make the final decision on the hardware that will replace Deeproot (possible options mentioned in the linked blog post above).

Save Deeproot


To participate in this donation drive, please click on the "Support FUMBBL" link at the top right of the page. Thank you very much for your support!

Where's the Deeproot counter? Would be fun to see how many coaches have added the iconic icon to their page.

Beats the classic fund drive thermometer.

I stated in a group message, that I would donate 1$ for each of the cas in my games for 1 week. I think I have been too violent and for economic reasons must stop before the week is done - so sorry:(

But, I will throw 55$ @ Christers direction as its about how many cas was made:) So its not for nothing:D

Donated! But via the Paypal app, as I'd forgotten my login details.
