I think that the community should approach each change and news with more optimism and less "this change is bad/weird/not appropriate".

EDIT: To answer the question, I stared at the 10k number for a few seconds, thinking `WOW, such a change from the yesterday's 7k`. Then I've gone to the donor list page and again, staring for a few seconds, I thought - WOW.

Wow! I just saw this thread titled "Big Donation" and then i looked up at the meter and sure enough it was above 10,000€ now and that made me twitch a little :)

I cannot agree more. This proves that nothing is set in stone. There was so much pessimistic talk in the fundraiser thread about how donations will start to slow down and how small the final collected amount will be. I would never have imagined someone would donate such a large amount, but there it is - thank you, "Mr. KROMDIJK", whoever you are!

I always told it: Money is only paper in these days.(fiatmoney). ROS must "only" be known to the right people, and even half a million won't be a problem. There are a lot of ritch and very ritch guys out there in the world. And some are artists, actors, globtrotter. Some inherited money from their familiy, they don't have to work in live, they are minded-open, travel around, share some good ideas. I am convinced that there a a lot of guys out there in the world who would give ROS a chance (with some more money a normal fan can spend) if they knew about ROS. (And these guys needn't to be computer freaks, it's enough that they understand what a FREEDOM Potential for the whole mankind sleeps in ROS. And a chance for another world wide SWARM effekt - like it once happend in Wikipedia or Linux. Another puzzlepart to FREE KNOWLEDGE - a FREE and UNIQUE(!) (instead of Linux) world wide OS )

An important step is actually in work: webside revamp ! I hope with a more "integrated webside" to web 2.0 and social media, more guys will here about ROS.

With every day the - what i call - "media ignition barrier" is coming closer and closer...

The definition of spam is unsolicited and indiscriminate advertisement. That is easy to do. It is also easy to piss people off by doing it. Targeted advertisement is considerably more difficult and expensive. If you wish to claim that it is easy, then provide the proof to back that statement.

indeed targeted advertisement of Reactos members it is not much more difficult and expensive, if it is make more personalty btw. if one person/member makes, and how many members we are ?
I have 2 University in my immediate environment, in Esslingen & Stuttgart and Ulm if i go directly
to the Dr.of or Prof. and call him, if he knows Reactos ....or just give him a leaflet directly in him hands
apropo, do we are have an leaflet/flyer ? With Scribus make leaflet ? Like an About here in the Homepage(http://www.reactos.org/en/about.html), but for get personally further ..
Or may by in you Region/Environment ? Can may by anyone be interesting in you region ?
it is need only to have any what in the hand like an laeflet/flyer, an thing who can take real in the hand and can open by self and can informed by self, then look in the I-adress and goes may by to the computer...
Not all used the comuter as multimedia Station, some Peoples used only as Tool for electrical Post or some thing and not more. So persons need flyers or leaflet to read out what it is or can give maby furter to the right place, there Son, take a look, they are in the "internet" may by can you help with you money...
Or.. there was an Person on the campus, he had get me a leaflet about an new
NTSystem who it is Open Source.. i don't know it before , now let look it more it about..
or something..
Hey how many Members we are ? we are around the world ... why not use it..
3-5 leaflet/Flyers to on Member ? think about.. and let printing 1000 Flyers
or leaflet's be ~ 120 Euros ... but this directly set on the right places, Universitys,
and may by on the rigt Town to the right people ? On the Leaflet bus at last the
please for support be and the Numbers of the US,Frace,Spain, Italien,German,Russian bank for get
money and naturlemonde the htp://reactos.org for looking more informations...

a sheet/letter/A4.. folded twice .... and the Members can take as PDF and can print out too.
Printed front and back ...

And if you have any what in the hand, so it is more as only a electronical-mail or electronic advising ,
you have something in your hand where you can pass/can get furter.. and may by find the right person it.. and say " ..heeee what it is this, it is interesting ! This is it !" <- and this can be a Million Dollar!
