I really appreciate that Alan! I do not mind helping out on "short term
funding" for our demos, it's very nice to get reimbursed. I'm sure a
bunch of the funds that have come in are due to the letters that were
sent out, however given that some portion probably came in via SlashDot,
we really owe them thanks as well. Looking at the stats

on our recent site hits and taking out the self-referrers it appears
that a goodly portion of the SlashDotters hit the paypal button. Nice
job setting that donation page up just before we were SlashDotted.

Thanks to all who worked on the donation request letter as well. Very
well done!
