Yeah, I thought it was worth an experiment to set up a patreon account just to see what all the fuss is about.

I sent out an email to old donors .

It looks like they are really coming through -- I think we are going to hit $10k by the end of the month!

What a wonderful surprise to wake up and find that we have passed $10,000 raised !!

We are so lucky to have such supportive people willing to take the time and make the effort and send their hard earned money to us.

In the coming months we are going to have to show them it is well deserved by putting it to good use and continuing our process of improving the site and embarking on some new projects.

What an incredible final week of the fundraiser it has been -- we have exceeded my expectations handily.  It's been such a wonderful thing to see the past donors and new donors together carry us over the finish line.  :-* :-* :-*

Everyone who donated in the last week please excuse my delay in sending you a thank you email.. I am a bit behind in my emails and now have 100+ to reply to.  :huh:

By the way -- I attributed the very high number of donations in this last week to an email I sent out to all previous donors -- but I've since found out that Gizmo at techsupportalert also sent out an email about our fundraiser, which surely accounts for a major chunk of the donations that have come in over the last week (gizmo's techsupportalert readers are some of the most supportive people there are).  So a big thanks goes to gizmo (ian) and everyone at techsupportalert.com for carrying us over the top.

Here is gizmo's wonderful post about our fundraiser:

What a class act Ian (Gizmo) is.  We are so lucky to have their support.  :-*



The only correction I should make to what Gizmo said was that we definitely do not have a fundraiser every year -- we don't have the energy and we know people don't have the patience for that, and it's hard to come asking for money unless we have some real improvements to justify it.. It's been 3 years since our last one.. It may be 3 more years until the next one.

Quick question.. What if I can't donate until Wednesday (Social Security doesn't arrive until then and my current bank balance is $0.41)?

This is so wonderful.  It's been a few years since we held a fundraiser and I forget how nice it feels to get the boost of support and energy that comes from people taking the time to donate and being willing to share their hard earned money with us.

Donate on wednesday! We accept donations year round.

Having said that, because we will be doing something special with the fundraising money, send me a little reminder when you do donate and I'll make sure it gets added to the fundraising total.  :up:
