We beat the target by lots. When all the check from the mail were counted, by about $30,000. And then by about $120,000 when we add the downpayment on the biggest surprise — a $1,000,000 gift by someone who (for now) is anonymous. More as soon as we can, but for now, thanks to everyone.

    A cool $million! Very impressive.

    My guess: Sergey Brin or Larry Page.

    That’s amazing! Thanks to all those out there who gave some cash for the CC cause.

    Fantastic! A worthy cause indeed.

    Can we assume you mean a $100,000 gift? Still very generous in any case. :-)

    No, $1,000,000, not $100,000. We received a pledge to give $1,000,000. The first $90,000 was received just at the end of the year. So there’s still $910,000 to come.

    It was me! It was me!

    No, it wasn’t. I just wish I had that much green to give such a worthy cause.
