Ok, here's the inside scoop on processing the donations from the GPUUG funding drive. Matt processes them. Matt is on tour... for a looooooooooooooog time. Matt was supposed to show Eric what to do to process the donations before he left on tour. Eric was supposed to remind Matt to do this. They both forgot. Unless Eric figures out how to do it first, Matt will fix everything when he gets back. Sorry friends.

AARGH, I thought this was supposed to be automated. Let me know, if I can help in anyway.

Donations through the GPUUG are not automated. Donations one makes through more conventional channels are.

Sorry, I got some misinformation from Brad then. Or things just didn't go as planned.
My offer stands.

Perhaps I got it wrong. I'm sure Brad will weigh in if my information is incorrect. Thanks for the offer Uli-belle. I will let Eric know.

Thanks Ang. I think your info is right, but just a little kink in the cog.
Totally of topic, but what was on the goulish snack menu today?

Nothing goulish. I just made pasta for dinner. Eric and I both went into work on today's "high holiday".

I believe, and don't quote me on this, that Brad said a while back that the goal WAS to handle the reporting and registering of GPUUG donations automatically.
I don't think that amongst everything else on the table, that ever got accomplished.
