Help us keep the
Samurize Project alive!

... - Cure - 2003-03-06 01:00

We started the Samurize-project early in the year 2002. Now, one year later, we have over 150.000 users and 5.000 visitors a day. We could never have guessed that Samurize would be so popular, in such a short time.

It's however hard to keep such a large project alive, especially when the program is free for everyone. The server, broadband and all time we put into this project costs some money. And now it has come to a point where we need help to keep the development of Samurize going.

So, if you enjoy your Samurize and use it regulary, give a few buck as a tip. In return we promise to make the program better, slimmer and faster for every new release.

With best regards
Gustaf Lundh, aka Cure
Oscar Lundh, aka Sim

Great idea guys, lemme say I think u guys deserve a lil gratitude in your pockets I just cancelled the credit card so I wrote you a poem instead...hahaha, just kidding! Seriously though, Mardagg and I already talked about this while the SS site was offline and we were going to suggest it to you as a means for us to show our thanks

Crash> Thanks for the kind words.

Every little nickel we recieve is helpfull. Bamsefar is getting % for the server, Sweetfish for the webdesign and Cure and me for the programming.

It's like when ordering a beer, if you like the service you give some tip.

Sofar, we recieved 20 bucks, not much, but if three people like samurize so much they think it's worth a few dollors, it warms and old programmers heart (And as mentioned, it's needed to keep the project going.)

Dang it, I'm still laid off from work.. but soon as I get some extra money I'll send it.

you really should put an advertisement on the front page. You guys are getting tons of hits.. should be worth something to a company.

Mardagg; The problem is that you hardly get any money for advertisement nowadays, there is however possible to make a special deal with a company, don't know about any international companys that could be interested though.

Yup, great little proggie. $5 headed your way. I especially love the focus on keeping it small with very little CPU or RAM consumption. Very refreshing in today's world of bloatware.

but the images in the database could. Along with any other large file. Just have the main page load the pics from piwi's server.

I know nothing about site tech things. But i'm sure if you would please email our webserver dude, 'bamsefar', he would certainly be happy if it's possible to take some load of his hardworking server.
