How about one of those bargraph things to see how the collection is going?

Unless this is tongue in cheek, I guess you don't check out the front page very often...
(There's a traditional thermometer progress meter there, but it's still at zero.)

As donations only started last night, we'll try and get the thermometer updated weekly.

No donations are used to pay for any development work or pay for any expenses other than the webserver.
Who pays for bandwidth, power, floor/rack space occupied buy the server etc or is that going to addressed as a seperate issue?

We're likely going to lease (unless someone gives us $10K), so that's all covered in the lease.

<P>My ISP has been down over night and most of today. </P>
<P>I will send CR or C@W an update on a regular basis. </P>
<p> DD's can take up to 2 working days to show up in our account and paymate only comes through nightly. so you might not see a change straight away and cheques will also take longer.</p>

myState members take note!!!!

If you are a member of myState Financial and you do a transfer between members, the website will not let you include a reference to say who you are.

I just made a donation using the website and chose the "transfer to another member" option. It asks for the member number and the account number and the amount but nothing more.

It may let you do a transfer to an another institution and just put in the details for myState - that way you can put in your cacher name for the record.

So, when those with the power look at the donations and see one without a name, it is probably mine. 8)
