please Julian
could you say the amount money it costs to keep the project's web online (and other non free aspects) for a year (hosting & domain name and more) ?

I would agree to donate a little for that.

Julian, I could afford a hosting if you wish.  I'm not with time right
now (also with some
projects but I think this project should live and that it has a big future).

I could help translating the wiki to spanish with José Luis Galvez Lopez
help (he offered
to do that too).  I could also encourage other users to start using it.
The first step is to move
them to a linux distribution.  This can be a tough point, mostly due to
ignorance rather than
something else  Many of them think that linux is only for hackers, or
for gurus,
I'm trying to change that with some mini-tutorials on using Kubuntu or
another KDE based
linux distribution.

I'm here to help, with not much free time but with a big willing to help.

Lucas and Julian, fell free to contact me in private if you wish.
