Ok it's official, we have just broken our very intimidating fundraising record from 2009 of $13,838.  I didn't think there was a chance in hell of that happening when we started, what with the global economy being the way it is.

It's all thanks to the amazing and generous and encouraging people who have made DC possible since it's start.  It's a great day for DC.  Thank you to everyone who has donated now and in the past.

It's totally awesome to see how these donations kept coming in. It didn't feel like the 'trickle' that was mentioned before; of course it wasn't the high volume of donations of the first few days, but I'd still call it a 'steady stream'.

mouser: can you prepare a graph that shows sum of donations per day and other such statistics?

From FIDO-net, through Usenet, to DonationCoder - the only thing do really miss from those days might be the promising noice from the modem, making a connection.

Anyhow - greetings from IKEA-country, and good luck!   :-*

BTW - more Mouser videos to the people!

Welcome, DerekHal,

the promising noice from the modem, making a connection
;D
The noise is there, but the frequency is just too high for humans to be able to hear it. And lots of time the connection is kind-of permanent, so connecting isn't done that often anymore :huh:

@ $14,111 now,
I was thinking a good number to finish up on - but forgot it's got another 6 hours or so to go 'over there' before the day is done :)

We did it!

We broke past our top fundraising goals and passed our record fundraising amount from 2009. Awesome.

THANK YOU TO EVERYONE!



This was really an awesome month and a great experience.

Looks like time to call it a wrap!

WOW!  :)  :)  :)

What a result! I am proud to be a small gear in this great community.

It was amazing this month to wait till next day to see what comes next. And i got lot of nice readings, hints and some programs from it.

Thank you to all contributors to make this possible and i hope i have the opportunity to be a contributor in 2 years at the next fundraiser.

And thank you to all donators as well to make it possible that my most loved website in the net is now capable to exist for another 2 years or so.

And last but not least THANKS TO MOUSER! Our cheese of cheesys, our beef in the burger, our man who mouser us all the time in the IRC channel, and of course our always squeaking gear that make all this here possible (of course with the help of us - but he is mainly the engine that drive us to the events like N.A.N.Y, fundraiser, mass suicide  :huh: ...errr cancel the last please  :-[ ).  :D

Now i just hope (Attention: Pure egoism follows) that i am one of the winners of the giveaway drawing.  :P Anyone can imagine how difficult it is to write this message with crossed fingers?  :o

Fundraiser celebration is over now...but don't let celebration stop here. Let's celebrate now the results, the winners of the upcoming drawing and our community in it's all for the next 2 years. Then we end this celebration season and just begin a new one with a new fundraiser.

THANK YOU AGAIN TO ALL OF THIS GREAT PLACE!

Greetings
JoTo

This an extremely gratifying result.

The astonishing amount raised, almost three times the stated target, is the more remarkable because of the prevailing, harsh economic climate.

I take it to be an incandescent endorsement of DonationCoder as it stands.

I guess we have to overcome those shortcomings that lotusrootstarch mentioned. Obviously people dislike DoCo ;-)

Good job, DoCo team!

As contentious as lotusrootstarch might be in arguing his points, I'd caution against making this a 'referendum' to continue with no changes; I do think that there is a need to continue to evolve.  I just don't believe in change for the sake of change, but change directed by mouser's idea for the site, and the members of the site.

... I hope that made sense.  :-[

Another CONGRATULATIONS to everyone that worked so hard in reaching and EXCEEDING the initial goal.  :Thmbsup:
It is the "regular" posters old and hopefully some new ones as time goes on, that provide the knowledge, assistance, programs, snacks and general good times that continues to make DonationCoder so unique.  Which I believe helps increase the membership not only during fundraisers but on a daily basis.
