Update! Here is the formal invitation that is open to one and all. I will be there. If you can make it, please join us to celebrate our friend's life. viewer.png


It brings me great sorrow to add the news of Syrillian's passing to the OP of this thread.

R.I.P., friend.

So sorry to report that Syrillian passed away this Saturday, August 13th after an 8 month battle with large cell neuroendocrine lung cancer.

Our family was with him when he passed and he went easily and without pain.

He was so young and had been so healthy prior to this cancer that it is hard to believe he is gone.

Our family would like to thank everyone who contributed to the American Cancer Society donations, he was truly touched by the generosity and caring of all of you.

Is there some way to post a broadcast message to communicate this to more people?

Please advise. You can email me directly at libby.costin@yahoo.com and I will also check back to this site for any private messages.

Thanks and please send your prayers for his eternal rest.

Libby Costin


Here is a video of him showing off some of his builds

EDIT 3-22. PAYPAL ISSUES RESOLVED. Donations are a go once again!wheee.gif

Auction thread is live!

Dear members and guests of overclock.net:

One of our own has become ill and it is time for us as a community to come together and show our support for him. You all know him as Syrillian. I know him as something different: my mentor in this community.
He has been diagnosed with a particularly nasty form of cancer and we are taking donations to help his cause. I have spoken with other staff members all the way up to admin himself and have full support of this thread and would like to make the following announcement:

Effective immediately, we will begin accepting donations to help Syrillian's cause. This is a double-edged sword which will serve 2 purposes:

1.50% of proceeds will go directly to the American Cancer Society in Syrillian's honor as a gift to help in any way possible..
2.50% of proceeds will be used to purchase new folding@home equipment to help the cause for all mankind., which will run at my residence as part of the Community Folding Project.

Our own Case Labs has offered to donate 2 of their monster M10 cases to house the systems that will be built. We are shooting for a total of 4 systems, but I am unaware at this time, if all 4 systems can fit in the 2 cases. I may need to purchase 2 more cases of a different kind. Stay tuned for updates. Special thanks to them!

For all of those that have posted in this thread, asking what you can do to help, this is your battle cry. kungfu.gif


ALL DONATIONS WILL BE MATCHED BY ADMIN UP TO A MAXIMUM CONTRIBUTION OF $5000 applaud.gif


paypal-donate-now-button.png?w=170&h=125
I want to add a special thank you to all of the members in the community who have bombarded my inbox asking how you can help. I really appreciate the way this community comes together. It does not go unnoticed. Fold on. sonic.gif


List of cash donations has been reset





With regards to the hardware donations that were previously meant for a raffle event. Due to the issues with Paypals TOS we have now changed how we are going to go about this. We are now going to be holding a charity auction of the donated hardware. All proceeds will go towards the selected charity for this event which is the American Cancer Society in honour of our friend Syrillian.

Members who have donated hardware and shipped it to SmasherBasher already at this point will be asked if they wish for their hardware to be shipped back to them or if they wish for their dontated hardware to be put forward for the charity auction. A new thread with more details of the charity auction will be created shortly. We feel its best to keep the hardware donations seperate from the monetary donation thread.

Great news the Charity Auction is now up !

GET BIDDING, We have some great Items biggrin.gif

If you would like to make a hardware donation for the auction please PM ENTERPRISE and we can get that sorted !

Thanks,
ENTERPRISE

As I poke around the ol' Madhouse I see ribbons with my moniker on it... lending me strength, fortitude and adding to my conviction that not all is as bleak as it may seem at times. Truly this community has been inspirational in keeping my head up and continually trudging forward.

Indeed, it seems that hope springs eternal.


I would also like to thank SmasherBasher, Case Labs, Admin, MSI and Corsair that aided in supplying Folding Gear so that this endeavor in general can carry on.

Guys, please keep in mind that all hardware donations will be listed as prizes for the raffle. I will be getting updates from admin in the form of a list, and will keep the OP updated with eligible members. If you have hardware to donate, please PM me or Miki with "Hardware Donation" in the subject line.
Thanks for all your support.
