We Need A Nikola Tesla Museum!

I straight up copied the below from The Oatmeal. I think it is really important for this museum to be built, so I’m posting this here.

FAQ

  • What happens if we don’t raise the entire $850,000?
    The Indiegogo campaign is set up as a flexible funding campaign, so no matter how much we raise it will still go to the non-profit and toward making an offer on the property. $1.6M is the asking price, but we’re hoping to buy it for less and then use the remainder of the money renovating the property.
  • What happens if we raise more than we need, or if you make a lower bid on the property and there’s money left over?
    Any money left over will be spent renovating the property and put toward turning it into a Tesla Museum.
  • If this is a success, can you build a museum right away? What happens next?
    The property the laboratory is on is a bit of mess. It needs to be cleaned up, restored, and there’s a ton of work to be done to actually turn this into something worthy of Tesla’s legacy. The money we’re raising is simply to secure the property so no one can ever mess with it and guarantee that it’s a historic site. It opens up years and years of time to figure out how to build a proper Nikola Tesla museum.
    However, I would love to have some kind of Nikola Tesla festival on the property on July 10th of 2013 (Nikola Tesla Day), and have some kind of zany Tesla-coil-BBQ-cookout.
  • Who is handling the money?
    The Indiegogo campaign is linked directly to the bank account of Tesla Science Center at Wardenclyffe, formerly known as Friends of Science East, Inc. It is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization registered with the State of New York. You can read more about them and their board of directors here: Tesla Science Center at Wardenclyffe.

A Post From My Old Website About What Hardware I Owned Circa 2002

Hardware

Pentium 3, 1Ghz Laptop, 256mg Ram, 30 gig HDD, dual boot windows xp home, and Redhat Linux 7.2, used mainly for my own personal uses

Pentium 2, 400Mhz Desktop, 192mg Ram, 20 & 40 gig HDD, windows 2000 pro, The following are served off of here: This website, an mp3 ftp site, my broadcasts for ragradio, and an irc server

Pentium celeron, 533Mhz Desktop, 192mg Ram, 10 gig HDD, Redhat linux 7.2, This was my first linux box, i will always have fond memories of it. it currently is pretty much a bot (for irc) server and a telnet server, so i can chat when im away from home.

 

Pentium 3, 1.2Ghz Desktop, 128mg Ram, 80 gig HDD, Windows ME, This is my wifes computer, she mostly uses it for playing diablo, and watching movies, it has a sony 19″ moniter with it, which we picked up the whole package for a great price.

Linksys 4 port router with built in switch, which connects all my LAN together.

Though it is a bit hard to see (its in the middle) this is an RCA digital broadband cable modem, which is what connects all this hardware to the internet.

 

 

 

Below this line is another post on my website I came across that shows me I was using Bit Torrent as of 2003.

If You think you need a login to my ftp that is back up and running, email me, [redacted] i will get back to you, also please include your preffered login name and password

here is a list of files that have been burned and can be put on the ftp if requested (updated 10-25-03)
WARNING if you download from the ftp between the hours of 11pm and 8 am you are probably fighting with bit torrent for bandwidth, dont complain when it goes slow.
