While we do keep a separate blog for most HeliOS Project stuff, we'd like you to know that this is the time of year we need to secure funding for the second half of the year. As of this posting, we've placed 91 individual computers, over half of The Settlement Home project is complete and we will finish Space12 right after the Linux Against Poverty event is over. Hopefully that event will bring us the LCD monitors especially required for that install.
We know that these are tough times for everyone. I myself am unemployed after being laid off two weeks ago so I am the first to understand how priorities can shift in times like this. Should you be in the position to help see us through the year, we would appreciate you clicking the donate button on the left side of this page. This funding is used for day-to-day expenditures like fuel, incidental parts and the constant small costs associated with our operation.
The vote is not in yet, but there is a possibility that we will be raffling off two really decent computers in the next week. One is an Alienware M5500 and the other is an Acer (don't start it) TravelMate 8210. These are mid to high end machines, running 2 gigs of ram and 160 gig hard drives. Both are dual core and fairly scream through any task you can through at it.
Keep an eye out for this announcement and if the Directors vote in favor of it, we'll rock and roll with the raffle. This isn't exactly a newsworthy blog so it will not receive any real exposure on the net. We would surely appreciate it if you would spread it around to your friends.
