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.
