Ok, let's see what we can do for the project today.

We've seen a lot of difficulties lately where it's definitely possible that the addition of a staff member could've helped get the servers back up with less of a delay.

I have put up $25 in a check that will be mailed tomorrow.

If you are willing to match my donation, please post your name here on and list the amount if you wish.

**Here is a link to the Donation Methods Page **

If you do not wish or unable to that is absolutely fine-there will be no criticism of non-donors in this Challenge thread.

This thread is not meant to spotlight anyone unless they wish to participate.

It will be locked Sunday night 8/17 when I go to bed about 10-11pm EST.

Thank you for your interest and support to the program.

I honestly don't know Bernie-I'll look into it and get back to you ASAP.

In the meantime, please consult this link for donation methods.

You may wish to consider using an Internal Money Order.

I don't have a credit card just a UK bank debit card (Maestro) I do have a paypal account, but both are no use here. Find me and easy way and I promise to donate £50, about $93, pity yesterday it would have been nearer $100.

I just donated in my "economic stimulus package" tax rebate. How's that for a government grant?

It appears there is a problem with the Credit Card Donations. I get the same error message using 2 different (and Good) credit cards.

Dear Friend of Cal,

We are sorry, but we could not process this credit card.

Update:

It appears to be working now, just donated $ 500 via online system

The kitties decided to share their kibble and donated $25.00 this morning.
I also noticed that some others matched our donations in the 'I suppose there is an excuse for no new work' thread.
What meowing lurks in the hearts of man? The kittyman knows....MEOWhahahahahahha!

Have made friends here.

I gave at the office.

Oh wait a minute no I didn't, I did it from home. Donated on the 8th (just before you started this thread) using the credit card link.

I got my receipt in the mail for last months donation which had a return address on the front of the envelope of Malmo, Sweden. I was most impressed.

Cheers,
MarkJ

By my estimate, we have raised over $2000 in this Challenge. WOW!!!!

If we can hit $5000 by Sunday, I'll do more on my own.

Uli will be helping me track #'s in case I lose anything.
