To all those who donated to the yeti computer fund...

To all those who donated to the yeti computer fund...
...I am very very grateful - especially to the few who donated significant amounts. It is to you that the rest of the members owe a huge debt.

After the 1st round failed to meet the goal, a 2nd appeal was made, which also failed. Neither got over 50%. The bright side is the total raised was enough to buy me a very nice machine with sufficient power to keep going.

Again, thank you to all who contributed.

To those who have contributed neither funds nor bandwidth, therefore taking advantage of those that do contribute, I offer this quote:

Didn't the first one go over 50%?

In any case all is well that ends well. You got what you wanted and we get...

Now go and repair that genius code you had written for the search engine. LOL

Yes, in lieu of having funds, I'm at least happy to have been able to offer some bandwidth for the site.

Very nice to hear you have yourself a new girl, Yeti. ;>

Truth appears in many forms. Find those that resonate with you.
