Risc PC RAM - CJE, Firefox and others.

Posted by Richard Goodwin on 14:54, 23/6/2005 | , , , ,
 
CJE senior dogsbody Andrew Conroy emailed with information about a Risc PC RAM deal that also helps the Firefox porting being done by a certain Mr. Naulls. Now, that might seem like slight news to warrant a whole posting to itself; but it got me thinking, and everyone knows that doesn't happen often, so hold the front page.

First, the deals on offer. Buy 64 or 128MB memory for a Risc PC - in either original FPM or later EDO flavours - and a whole five earth pounds of that goes to the Unix Porting Project, of which Firefox is the headline application. To put than in perspective, it's about 14% of the asking price for 64MB of EDO memory, so it's no small chunk of change. The prices in full:

  • 64MB EDO 35 GBP
  • 64MB FPM 40 GBP
  • 128MB EDO 60 GBP
  • 128MB FPM 65 GBP
Prices include VAT and UK postage. Quote "Firefox Offer" when you make your purchase.

Or you could buy them from me and donate £10 to Firefox or anything you choose ;-) ;-) ;-)

What a BRILLIANT idea! Incredible - I was just thinking and looking at the very RAM items today on the CJE page!

So what is the difference between EDO and FPM?

I should get paid tomorrow ( ;) ) - I really hope these aren't sold out by tomorrow night!

Have you not seen the length of my news articles? I'd need to waffle on for much longer than that! ;)

This offer has come about the right time since my own supply of 64MB Simms has virtually run out.
Cheers!
