Businessman donates ‘meaningful sum’ towards TR Emeritus’ upgrading

Click to make a donation via PayPal

We are pleased to announce that a local businessman has donated a “meaningful sum” towards TR Emeritus’s (TRE) planned upgrading.

With the latest donation from Mr Lee (who humbly do not wish to be identifiable), TRE has received approximately US$5000 in donations to enable us to proceed with our planned and much needed major upgrading which was announced in December 2018. [ LINK ]

In that announcement, TRE had sought US$10,000 in donations to enable us to:

1. Re-code our current theme (which is fatally outdated) and website to ensure compatibility with newer Php versions and systems software.

2. Upgrading of old servers (TRE currently runs on 3 servers) from 2 x Intel Core i7 to 2 x Intel Xeon E5 to better handle the millions of requests expected (from past experience) with the upcoming General Elections.

3. Fine-tuning and optimization of the new servers by 3rd party professionals.

4. Purchase / upgrading of dedicated bandwidth (if necessary).

As funds stand currently, we have proceeded with the re-coding of the website with assistance from a professional Italian programmer and have scheduled the old website to be ported to the re-coded website during the 3rd week of February. The exact date and time will be announced in advance.

Although with the needed “meaningful donation” from Mr Lee, re-coding needs have been dealt with, but we are still short of funds for the hardware and system upgrades.

We are therefore humbly still in need of donations to the tune of approximately US$5000.

So, if you believe in what we do, please take a minute to contribute and help us keep TRE going.

Thank you for your continued support and Happy and Prosperous Chinese New Year 2019!

    Nice to know that there’s someone willing to help TRE.

    TeamTRE if anyone wants to donate $10,000 in return for u stop using my pieces, pls feel free to accept and honour the offer. Being associated with the likes of bapak, rukking and Oxygen is something I’d rather avoid.

    Tech: Neh never will happen, we will not accept conditional offers. TRE has made it very clear from the onset that “all donations are purely voluntary and unconditional. TRE gives no promises whether expressed or implied to any individual or organization of any return in kind or favour or whatsoever, other than the continued operation of the website.

    As for “the likes of bapak, rukking and Oxygen”, you just have to sometimes read between the lines and pick out the gems from their argument, IMHO.

    Since we’re having our 2cents worth from our Techie; can throw some light how TRE circumvent from being blocked by authorities, like “The Singapore Herald”? A genuine question for the expert. Thanks.

    It depends on the type of blocking implemented. A website can be blocked by country, region, domain name, IP address and even protocols. In some cases, it is possible to circumvent blocks but TRE is too poor to be able to implement the measures.

    Someone suggested that if you use other free DNS resolvers instead of your ISP’s, you can circumvent a domain name block.

    I am currently using 1.1.1.1 and 8.8.8.8

    Maybe you try and see if you can access http://STR.com/.

    No one is so dumb to spend money because of you. Those who think that miserable donations can help can continue to be dumb. I am just waiting for the moment that you tre close down.

    nihon: go burn in hell

    Hell is meant for people called nihon
    From a puppy’s womb where he was born
    Spending most his life watching porn
    Everyday masturbating until the skin was torn
    Earning a living by trying to con
    Turned out to be a born loser who never won
    A useless idiot who’s life is gone!
