    Friday 16 December

    The equivalent of $9,551.60 was donated on the first day of the fund drive. Thanks to Brion Vibber, our Chief Technical Officer, we have a near real time donation tracking page at:

    The Detail page for each day of the drive has individual entries for anybody who donates through PayPal. You can see the amount donated, their name (if they gave permission for that) and a comment. I encourage everybody to read those comments.
