I installed glances on my server to check the stats and saw that I really, really need a new server πŸ˜… Will buy a RPi 4 with 8 GB of RAM tomorrow or the day after tomorrow. Must check my budget first.



Darnit! I can't buy RPi 4 until maybe next month πŸ˜” Too many extra expenses this month.

I've looked more into my budget for next month and concluded that it would take maybe 2-3 month before I can buy RPi 4.

Since my server are not the best, I think I need RPi 4 sooner than 3 months (I can have wrong, though). I have therefore created a Ko-fi profile where people can help me buy RPi 4 sooner than expected.

No forcing and not a must, but it would be very helpful and I would be very glad πŸ™‚


I now have enough money for this little beauty. I got donations from other places outside Ko-fi which made me super happy too!

Now to the planning board and also to choose the parts I need. Many thanks for all donations! πŸ€—

Better late than never πŸ˜… I just bought a RPi 4 and the chassi, ARGON ONE M2 (sorry for the screenshot in Swedish).

It got halted because I couldn't find the correct M.2 SATA SSD (but now I have, I think) and the correct power supply + personal issues. I don't want to import anything and pay for customs.

The M.2 SATA SSD has now been bought as well πŸ™‚ The only thing left now, is the power supply.

I would really drop you a bit, but completely dislike PayPal-checkout. No other option? πŸ™ƒ

@toxision Oh, I am so, so sorry for the late answer πŸ™ˆ Didn't see your toot until now.

Yeah, but only one πŸ˜• Stripe. Dumb question, but why do you dislike PayPal's checkout? I got curious πŸ˜…

@edgren ko-fi only accepts PayPal, there would be a 4% fee. Is wire transfer an option?

@thierry_palgen Ko-fi only accepts PayPal and Stripe. That was a large fee πŸ˜• Stripe takes 1.4% + 1.80 SEK for European cards and 2.9% + 1.80 SEK for non-European cards. I can add Stripe as an option if you want?

@thierry_palgen I'm sorry if my previous toot were a bit harsch (my opinion). I am tired πŸ™ˆ 😴 πŸ˜…

@edgren It wasn't harsh, it was just stating the facts. I would prefer a direct bank transfer. But I understand if you don't want to share your details. If that's not an option, i'll use paypal.
