Divested Computing Group is an umbrella for passion projects by myself, Tad, since 2014.
I devote a significant amount of my time and resources to FOSS and operate independently of any organization or company. I have been without any consistent source of income since May of 2020.
Your donation here will support the following:
- Motivation to continue the free-and-open-source Divested projects
- Providing timely responses to user messages and issues
- Covering my monthly living expenses such as rent, utilities, and groceries.
- Web server costs: currently $144 a year
- Chat server costs: currently $144 a year
- Domain name costs: currently $73.29 a year
- Electricity costs: currently averaging $80 a year for compiles alone
- Computing hardware costs are currently sufficiently covered thanks to past donations.
- Acquiring test devices for DivestOS, ranging between $50 and $300. Last devices:
- Pixel 6a for $320 in December 2022
- Nexus 5X for $40 in September 2022
- Nexus 5 for $35 in September 2022
- OnePlus 6T for $107 in September 2021
- I would like to make available at least one extra mirror server, a Gitea instance, and potentially a forum site.
- Occasional contributions to various related community projects (examples here or here)

Thank you for your contribution!
Please be careful with Liberapay, the page and wording can be very unintuitive and potentially charge more then you wanted. Do not hesitate to reach out to them or me if it does.
The entirety of the time period is paid up-front in full, not broken up and will by default automatically renew after the time period passes in full.
Example: three months of $10 will immediately charge you $30, and then charge you $30 again in three months.
