good idea, we could use dropcash to collect the donations.

I don’t get it. I signed up for a TypePad account but can’t go back to Dropcash and Dropcash doesn’t let me go beyond their home page. I’m sure I’m missing something… :(

Re: Christmas fund raising for TXP Developers

I’d like to try the distance abilities of my son’s new remote-controlled helicopter (after he opens that one); clipping a bill to the bottom and flying it over to the secret Austrian beach. Ditto the other direction.

Re: Christmas fund raising for TXP Developers

OK, sorry for the delay. Since Xmas is approaching, and since I’ve wasted time trying to sign-up for a Dropcash account we should consider making New Year presents (also, not everyone here’s a fan of Jesus Christ/Santa Claus, and rightfully so).

If you trust handing the money to a guy like me, here are the… let’s call them rules: ;)

  • we collect donations until December 31st
  • I’ll update the post with each donor’s name (unless they prefer otherwise)
  • if devs have an on-line wish list I’ll buy stuff from that list, otherwise I’ll ask each dev what they would like to receive
  • on January 1st I’ll split the total amount collected in three (we have three devs) and proceed with the purchases on Amazon.uk or any other e-retailer of choice
  • if I won’t be able to spend all the money collected in gifts, I’ll send the remaining amount directly to the devs’ PayPal accounts.

That’s it. Any other idea/suggestion/correction?

For donations please refer to my personal PayPal account: fede (at) kero (dot) it.

Thanks to everyone and Merry Festivities in advance to the community. :)

Re: Christmas fund raising for TXP Developers

Thanks everyone. Lee: nice idea to send the donation as “gift”, I guess. In this way no PayPal fees! :)

Updated the first post in order to add the recent donors’ names.

Re: Christmas fund raising for TXP Developers

Just edited the first post in order to reflect the total amount raised so far. I was hoping to beat the record amount raised by Alexandra a few years ago. Just four days left, hurry up! :)

Thanks!
