Just out of curiosity, what is the current setup?  Is is so slow that a new
motherboard and processor are needed to make it a sufficient stats machine?
 Also, what is a PCI video card needed for?  I'm sure it would be nice if
someone would donate one, but it isn't really a 'need' for the stats server
is it?

I must have missed it...where is all of this money going?

This may not be a big deal, but it's the principle of the matter.  I've
written to Nugget, rc5-owner at llamas.net, and a few other people in the past
few weeks to simple point out that the first instance of the word
'unsubscribe' above is spelled wrong....and I haven't received so much as a
'thanks' in weeks.  Of course, it hasn't been fixed either.  Anyone else
have any problems getting replies out of these people?
