GuruLib temporarily down

Filed under: 1 — gurulib @ 10:20 am

Sorry for this delayed response. I have been trying to find enough money to buy a new processor and UPS for GuruLib. Due to overheating since the cooling fan was not adequate for the Athlon X2 processor GuruLib’s main CPU failed and additionally, the APC UPS that was my power supply backup needs a battery change. The total cost was around $320. I managed to save some money and I have all the hardware available now. I will try to bring GuruLib back soon. All the data is safe and I have been backing up the contents all the time. One again sorry for this delayed response. I hope you all understand the pain of being in school and finding some additional income to run the website.



  1. If I may suggest, you should accept donations, maybe by putting a Donate button on the site. I am sure many of us will be glad to donate whatever we can to fund Gurulib. It is honestly the best home library cataloging site ever.

  2. Oh thank goodness it’s still coming back! I was afraid you were gone forever. I think everyone understands the money crunch these days.

  6. How about some ads? Non-intrusive ads are ok in my opinion.

  7. I agree with the others, this is an awesome service, I’m sure if you had a mechanism to accept donations, you’d have the funds for a great little box (or a subcription box in the cloud.. they’re cheap!! )

  8. I agree with suggestions that you put a voluntary donation box on the site. I would certainly pay a modest annual or monthly fee or donation.

    Meanwhile, looking forward to your return.
