So we all know that we need a server upgrade and that we have an anonymous donor who is going to match funds during the ‘Back to the Future Challenge’. More info about the anonymous donor deal

Anyway, I’ve dug the coins out of the seat cushions, returned the empty wine bottles, (yes, I have the occasional glass/bottle/box of wine) and I’ve come up with another 50 euros. So. . .

If three of you will match that between now and, oh, say the next week or so, then I’ll put the 50 to the server. Otherwise, the money goes to a pair of really cute shoes.

That’s like donating 50 euros and having it turn into 400 (the 200 the four of us are donating, plus the 200 anonymous) and that is one sweet deal imho.

Post here if you’re up for it. Or pm me if you’re shy. When 3 X 50 euros have been donated to this thread, I toss in my 50.

Or, next week, I go shoe shopping. :D

Oh, oh, looks like you guys are calling me on this.

One more donor and it’s (sob, sniff, whimper) bye-bye shoes.

Thanks Benva. :)

Well done Woody!

That means Kenzie has to contribute her 50EUR, together with you contribution, the 150EUR gets doubled by the anonymous donor, resulting a further 300EUR to the server. We should be just about done!

Fantastic.

Thank you Woody!

And, well, time to hold my end of the bargain. Sniff, whimper. Well, okay, here’s my 50.

The sliding bar is now at 66.9% …which, with matching funds, will get a new server.

When I started this little mini-challenge, I wasn’t sure that I’d find three brave souls to climb aboard with me. Thank you all.

Thank you kenzieB!!!

...AND everyone else who contributed. How fitting it is that you put us over the top. Yes, we have reached our goal (after the matching funds come in). Anything beyond 66.1% will just go to "upgrade" the server specs...and we very much enjoy upgrading the server specs. :D

Thanks again to everyone. This is good news and will help us grow PrimeGrid by adding more projects. Additionally, the Challenges will hopefully run better as the new server will be able to handle the spikes in load.

Congratulations to everyone! Now let's go and find a Woodall prime! :)

Thank you for the kind words. :)

As for which server you are going to get, well, may I suggest:

this little trinket lol

Tho, I guess, we’d have to do a little more fundraising. :P
