This is the list of people and in future maybe also companies i'd like to thank for any donations they made. If you like the site and have some excess money or graphics card you don't need anymore, then your name might me here too. We are accepting money donations through paypal - these will be used for paying hosting and domains fees. Even more we like various graphics cards. Usually we must pay at last postage (to Czech Republic), so if you're not willing send them for free, then please offer only rare and unusuall cards. By rare i mean cards from 80's, TIGA and other various profi 2D cards, early 3D cards or not usuall ones, non PC cards, mobile chips used on cards with common interfaces (PCI, AGP, PCI-E), profi 3D cards and ofc any prototypes. Basically if theres missing card with chip you own, we're interested. And if only one collector have it, there's very high chance, that someone else want it too. Besides your nick/name i gladly show here also link to your personal or company site / store if you will be interested.
So far on site are these collectors - you can choose who will be lucky one getting your card/s.....
Palcal (Czech Republic, near Brno) - big fan of Diamond brand and TIGA based profi 2D cards. He's even collecting various revisions of Diamond. Sadly not having time for updating his HUGE collection, so only part is on site.
Zaatharen (Czech Republic) - mostly collecting 3D cards. But takes anything he's missing.
Pirx (Germany) - fan of miro brand cards and everything on VL-Bus + some highend ISA cards.
Pepino (Czech Republic, Brno) - likes most various rare 3D cards and everything older.

Nothing to do, a lot of free time. No job available in my area, so started new site mostly for czech hardware collectors. Because theres a lot of them, but many don't have any site or its really outdated. Its based on same engine as this site, so advanced search would be possible. Only exception is dual language text with Czech and English languages. It's in starting phase, so far only one CPU collector is working on it with me, but got some more promises from other collectors. So i hope, there will be also home computers, accessories and other hardware later. You can check progress at http://old-computers.cz
