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.

Bilinear filtering is a texture filtering method used to smooth textures when displayed larger or smaller than they actually are.
Finally beated mine laziness and added very popular button between many site owners. Paypal donate button spawned on left side under main menu. So if you like site and want to support me, you can now do it by any amount you like. Money will be spend on domain and server hosting fees. So far these are paid by me and also by advertisments revenues.
Server hosting costs me now about 13.5 euro - thats about $15 per year. Domain fee (for adress vgamuseum.info) is $13.17 per year. So, if i get around $29 from donations, i will disable showing advertisments for that year. Another option is better server hosting. So far im using cheaper NoLimit webhosting, but theres also optional NoLimit Extra hosting for almost $59 (54 euro) per year. You can visit parameters of hosting on this link. If you like to have faster site, you can donate for this optional speed improvements.
Another item id' like to see on site is Compare for K2 plugin from Styleware. I already payed them 20 euro for that great search plugin on site (see collections and advanced search - they both using styleware search plugin). So if you like to have compare options for each card on site, you can donate 20 euro and i will buy and install this plugin. Compare is taking data from additional info table in every article, so things like bus, year, fillrate, texel rate, core and memory speeds can be compared between as many cards as you like. You can see demo of this feature on Styleware site. Feel free to inform me about other plugins you like to see on site....Site works on Joomla with K2 plugin, so anything compactible with these can be used. Sadly plugin can't work with articles without filled values - these are not always known, so only option is to find some programmer with a lot of free time, to do custom compare....
Another usefull thing to buy from donations could be universal programmer. Some guys ask me sometimes about bios images from specific cards. I have 2 boxes of bios and core chips from nonworking cards in mine collection. But no device to read data from bios chips. But i have no use for that bios files, so no reason for me to spend money and time on device, which i dont need. I could backup all these bios chips and put files on site, but will not spend money on that device. So you can donate for buying universal programmer TL866CS. Price is around $42. Buyed it already. You may notice some updates to few nonpc cards - added there bios downloads.
