Sparky news 2021/06

The 6th monthly Sparky project and donate report of 2021:
– Linux kernel updated up to version 5.13.0
– Added to repos: FreeTube, FrostWire, Lightworks
– Sparky 2021.06 of the semi-rolling line released

Many thanks to all of you for supporting our open-source projects, specially in this difficult days. Your donations help keeping them alive.
Don’t forget to send a small tip in July too, please.

* Thank you very much for your support, but it is getting smaller every next month 🙁
We are not able to collect even the minimum amount of the necessary monthly support.
Income from the advertising is also smaller – it is even not enough to cover living a one person in Warsaw, but there are two of us.
It is getting harder for us to live and work now, so we ask you – consider monthly support, please.
SparkyLinux, Linux, ArchiveOS and our other services are our only work we have.
We will not survive without your support!

* Bardzo dziękujemy Wam za wsparcie, jednak z miesiąca na miesiąc jest ono coraz mniejsze 🙁
Nie udaje się nam uzbierać w miesiącu nawet minimum kwoty potrzebnego wsparcia.
Przychody z reklam są jeszcze mniejsze – nie wystarczają nawet na utrzymanie 1-ej osoby w Warszawie, a jest nas dwoje.
Jest nam coraz trudniej, dlatego bardzo Was prosimy – rozważcie comiesięczne wsparcie na naszą pracę.
SparkyLinux, Linuxiarze, ArchiveOS i inne nasze serwisy to jedyna nasza praca i utrzymanie.
Bez Waszego wsparcia nie przetrwamy!

2020 annual payment of our server

DonateThe annual payment day for our server is coming.

We know that the situation is very difficult for all of us, because the virus paralyzes not only our bodies, and businesses too, but if you are in a position to help us, please support us – without your support we will not be able to keep it running, because we only exist thanks to you.

Until January 31, 2021 we have to collect and pay for our server 1500 PLN/360 Euros/430 USD plus min. 2600 PLN/~620 Euros/~ 740 USD for our monthly bills, such as: electricity, gas, water, internet, domains, expenses related to improving the functionality of websites, small computer equipment that wears out constantly (memory, pen drives, mice, batteries, etc. …), fuel, as well as rent, food, drugs and immortal taxes.

This is a bigger amount than usual, so we start collecting today. If we do not pay – we could disappear from the network, but we believe, with your help, we will be able to do it.

There are 2 collection progress bars will appear on the website.
The first bar for monthly support, and the second one for the collection to the server, so add a note: support and/or collection to the server, as a message to your donation, please. The amounts without a note will be transferred equally (in half) to both collections.

Unfortunately, better times we know before the Coronavirus have not returned yet, and there are no signs that they will come back soon, so we would like to collect the minimum national wage every month; from January 2021 it is PLN 2,800/~670 €/~800 USD.

Linuxiarze, SparkyLinux, ArchiveOS and SoftMania is our only job we have and our only source of income. The two of us only live off your monthly support and small advertising incomes. It’s not possible to survive in the Polish capital having small income from the adds, so your support is very important to us.

Anyway, if any of you have something interesting for us to offer – we are open to cooperation.

We wholeheartedly thank you for your support, which is, as always, invaluable.
Thanks to people like you, we have the power to create and continue to operate.

Visit the donation page to find out how to send a donation.

Stay healthy.
Aneta and Paweł
