OSUOSL Thank You

Mon, 22 Aug 2011 12:38:49

A letter arrived on my doormat at the end of last week from the USA! Not very often I get post from there, after I opened it it was a nice thank you card from OSUOSL thanking us for our last donation. OSUOSL provide us with rack space and pay for our bandwidth, so this is the least we can do to thank them for helping us.

Thank you OSUOSL! Here is the card:

More Site Maintenance

Fri, 29 Jul 2011 20:30:01

This weekend we will be removing the following wikis due to lack of usage:

  • D-Link
  • Freecom
  • Linksys
  • Maxtor
  • Synology
In the future articles for manufacturers that do not have their own specific wiki will go in the main portal. When we have enough articles to justify a wiki for a manufacturer then we will create one and move the articles over.

In addition we will most likely be doing some updates to the rest of the wikis this weekend to bring them up to the latest version of MediaWiki. Also we are slowly fixing the links back to the new main portal – this work is on-going but coming together.

Site Updates

Sun, 24 Jul 2011 14:56:57

Today we updated all the forums to the latest version of phpBB and following this we upgraded the nas-central blog. Also we fixed an issue with news reporting to the wikis from the blog.

You may have noticed that we have changed the main portal back to a wiki too as this is useful for general articles that are not device specific. There is still some more content to restore to this area and a bunch of links that need fixing that link there from the other wikis – please bear with us while this happens.

Tonight also we will be looking at upgrading the bug tracker and possibly merging the foonas bug tracker into this area.


Donation Drive Update – Server Disks Needed!

Tue, 14 Sep 2010 21:43:05

We are looking to upgrade our storage on our server with a couple of 2 TB disks. To do this we need to raise approximately $550 USD. We will be using what is currently in the reserve towards this but we need your help getting the rest.

We are advert free and do our best to provide you with this resource thanks to your kind donations. Three years ago you helped us buy a new server, which is now hosted for free at OSUOSL – this is the first new server hardware we have needed since then.

We hope this will be easy to achieve if everyone can give a little!

Please visit – thank you for your help.

In the next post we will be letting you know a bit more about the NAS-Central infrastructure at OSUOSL.
