Give credit where credit is due.
Mark, when you're good you're very good: but when you're bad you're a pain in the donkey.

In this case, you've gone above and beyond the call and congratulations are called for.
Well done.

Welcome back, Mark!

I'm trying to get the full total from reading the thread. It's easier than figuring it out from the database since there's no way to separate these donations from others (Other than the $1000 donations). I think that it's $9000 including the donations of less than $1000. Can anyone check my math?

Where it ends up will set the amount of RAM that comes with it.

Thanks for all your donations!

Eric

Eric,

Your math looks good to me! $9K exactly.

I see Mark's original $1K offer + 6 extra $1K (62466, 62467, 62468, 62470, 62472, 62764) + soft^spirit cheque for $1K + $200 + $400 *2 (62603, 62695, 62698).

Yes Eric $9,000 is correct from what was posted here.

Mark, I second the new server be named Oscar!

Ditto, Oscar is a good name.


Ah ha. I was right about the possible name. Nice to see Mark back, too. If the current 'protocol' is to name servers on a Sci-Fi theme, thats easy....Oscar as in Oscar Goldman or the Oscar as per the old cartoons in the 60's (Astronut?). I can also remember that earlier this year there was a cat called Oscar which was, I think, nick-named The Bionic Cat, due to it having it's (back?) legs replaced with prosthetics following some sort of accident. However, yes, it is up to SSL, in the end.

I must say, I'm hugely impressed with the raising of that amount of money. Not just one server....but two! Good job its not my cash though - I'd wait for the sales, or look for a 'buy one, get one free' offer ! lol

Kermit, Now of course We all know or should know of Kermit the Frog(Ribbit), But I remember a download standard called Kermit that was fairly popular back before the internet was declassified.
