A plea for help (Update #2)

Posted on by - 17 Replies

Well… this is a bit awkward, isn’t it?

I guess I should start by introducing myself.

I am joletb and I create subtitles and video encodes, you might know me as the guy who runs Asenshi or also the guy who spends obscene amounts of hours on scenefiltering video encodes, but you probably know me from the former.

Now I didn’t expect for this to happen but as it turns out, my HDD seems to be slowly dying.
I mean, not only that but my entire PC has been really kinda on the brink of death for the past year or so.
Not surprising, considering it’s (almost) a decade old!
As such, I will probably need a replacement PC in the near future. You might now be asking yourself “But why don’t you get an actual job?”
Well, you see, it’s not really that easy. Especially when you deal with chronic pain almost daily and getting jobs has never been really harder.

Long story short, I need money for a new PC. Now the good thing is that I’ve already collected some money via the kindness of other fansubbers but I still need about $1200 $1000.
The reason I need that much money is not only because of the higher prices of GPUs but also because it’s getting shipped from another country and I need a PC that would be able to sustain me for a good 5-10 years. In that time, I will have likely found a job and would never need to ever do this again.

If you can spare any amount of money, it would mean the world to me, any amount helps.

Donation page

Current donation status: $1362 / $1000 (this counts all methods of donations)

Thank you for taking your time to read this.

UPDATE #1: I’ve got some good news!
I’ve managed to find all the parts locally as a prebuilt PC thus eliminating the need to pay for customs, save for the monitor, which still needs to be shipped.

Because of this, I’ve managed to shorten down the goal to $1000!

Also, I’d like to take this moment to thank everybody who has donated up till now, you guys are amazing!

UPDATE #2: Thanks to a very, very kind individual the amount has been met much earlier than expected, thus ending this donation campaign. However, I want to thank every single one of you who have pledged any amount of money to this. I’m not sure if I’ll ever be able to fully repay this but I’ll try by fansubbing a lot, I guess. You guys are all amazing and this would have never been possible without you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for giving me the chance to continue doing my passion.

(If you are somehow still pledging to the account, you can safely remove your pledge.)
