With the most recent run of donations we've finally broken $1000!  We are just shy of our goal and should hit it easily before the end of the month.  Well done, all around.

Donation sent (and a bump for anyone else who has been waiting for a good time to get around to doing so).  Thanks, Ron.  thumbsup

Thanks for that, and for the other donations we've received last week.  Our current totals look like this:

- Our current donation amount = $1115.00
= $265 dollars to go!

We are extremely close at this point.  It looks like we'll make our goal very very soon.   I'm completely floored by the fantastic rally the community has made to get this project done.  I'm very excited about the future!

Did a quick update this morning - we are sitting at $247.24 dollars to go.  If nothing else, I can cover that.  We are close!

Glad to hear we are still moving along, even if it is a bit slow.

Has anything grown out of the yard sale idea?

Sadly no.  :/   I'd gladly set up one if I had the product.

I have some things that I'd be willing to donate to a "yard sale" type of thing, but I'm afraid that the shipping on them would cost nearly as much as the stuff itself would sell for.

Well, we are exactly where we left off.  Mike and I have been moving forward with the redesign work.  I'll beat the drum a little bit come October and try to polish off the rest and then place the order.  Once I place the order we have a 2 month countdown to launch as I'll be paying for hosting on BOTH boxes until development is complete.   The great news is that we've not been sitting around doing nothing - we've made some great strides in getting GT some of the much-needed community features you guys have requested for a long while.  smile

We are just 222 dollars away from our goal!  Thanks again to the folks who have given a little bit here and there - as you can see, it adds up quickly, and it'll mean a much faster and more reliable site in the future.  Right now I'm planting a flag in the ground and saying that we'll be up and running on January 1 on the new box and on new code.  It's exciting times around here!

I put the last 200 bucks into the kitty myself - our server will ship THIS FRIDAY!

Oh, and I doubled the RAM, added a processor, and added a redundant power supply.  MMmmmm....speedy!

We keep a thread there for our brothers in arms.  It's certainly not as broken in as the one here, but we like it.
