Look at the top of forum. You can see the red liquid trying to reach the 8k mark. That whole instrument is called as thermometer. I tried to explain thinking i'm explaining to Mayans.  :P

have no fear for Cody's health, the script that creates the thermometer image is programmed to increase the max if we reach the current goal  ;D

By the way i submitted the donation appeal to digg.com, i am not sure if it will help at all tough if anyone here has a digg.com account i suggest to digg the link for more exposure, that way more people can see it.

Btw, shouldn't the thermometer have gone *down* as the funding increases? Right now, it's more like "$6200 until Cody FEEEEVER!" :)

maybe it's the room temperature as code flaps about now having more energy.

mouser told me that the way Cody's body works isn't quite the same as certain other organisms...

ps.
Cody (our bird/duck mascot) has insisted I tell people that if they cannot make monetary donations, he would be happy to receive chocolate coins in gold foil wrappers, or else hand drawn pictures of himself to hang on his wall.

Where do I send the chocolate/pictures?  ;)

I'm trying to think of some additional things we can do during this fundraiser month.

One thing of course is to work on updating software on the site, but that's not really anything special.

I think something that might be helpful to the site would be to ask everyone to participate in a little survey so we can get a feel for what parts of the site people think we should focus on, and get some suggestions about ways to improve, etc.  That would be a way people could help.

Any other ideas?

Of course another way the coders who hang out at dc could help a *lot* would be to release some new programs or updates to existing programs this month.

Well I made my big infusion in February, so I can't commit more at the moment without my wife trying to steal my bank card for good, but I did give Donation Coder a little more exposure on CNET.com.  They are currently highlighting several screenshot capture programs and completely missed ScreenShot Captor.  So I bumped it.  If they come here, they should see the donation push as well, even though I forgot about it so I didn't mention it.

one thing that has come up in discussions is the idea of offering something special to people who donate during the fundraiser that they wouldn't be entitled to if they donated before the fundraiser.  while that might be a way to get more donations, it seems completely unfair and illogical to me, and we haven't ever done something like that.  any donation that occurred prior to the fundraiser is at least as valuable if not more so than a donation now, so thank you!

second -- there is very little anyone can do to help this site more than just letting people know about the site when appropriate.  because we dont have pr and marketing departments like big companies, it's really only by things like this that people find out about our programs, and they would often get overlooked if not for this.  so thank you again, and thanks to everyone who ever makes a comment on blog post or software review pointing out when someone has overlooked a dc program that should have been included. [though please never be obnoxious or post about a program on dc that you don't personally use and like -- let it never be said that we encourage that kind of thing]
