bump for a good cause, I've got a PSU, case, CD-ROM, and HDD in on this venture, and have a stick of PC133 whenever Xeno needs it. This is a great cause guys, and we appreciate anything even if it is just a few bux.

Good job with the thread Xenocide! Its important that everyone knows that they can donate a little bit of cash and not just hardware.

Sig link added!

$9.62 as of yesterday. :(

Bah, Crap. I thought we had gotten more.
Oh well, all this means is we need to spread the word a little bit better. I guess people aren't seeing this thread or something. I will tell people at my forums and spread the word to any oc forums members on my aim buddy list. A bit of creative advertising will do the trick.

$9.62? How long does it take to clear? Mine went in on the 3rd but I guess with the 4th, it'll take a day or two extra to get there.

usually any payments to a paypal account are reflected in the balance however if they have not cleared (e-check) the account owner will not be able to use the full amount until it has cleared. if you sent a donation it either errored or it was after i asked xeno for the balance a couple days ago. perhaps he can check it again.

Thanks Belorsch. What I have been doing is, well first of all showing it off in my sig. Also, I have been reminding people about the program in general whether it be here or at my forums or on aim. Just spread the word. Tell your friends, tell your grandparents, tell whoever. I told one of my customers and when they get a new computer next month they are going to donate their old one... :) .

we've got a lead on some parts as follows:

2.2 celeron, 3 pci vga, several nics, several ide cables all for $50 shipped

also have a lead on a p4 1.8ghz and gigabyte 8INXP mobo for $65 shipped

all we need is a little money. beleive me we are scouring everywhere for deals and are coming up with excellent steals but without any money at all we can't even get the cheap ones :(

every dime you donate will go towards a folding rig. we will only purchase items when absolutely necessary or a very good deal is available.

OC Folding Forums if I understand correctly. This
thread may explain better. The rigs are basically put together with parts and monetary contributions of OC Folding members.
