Best of luck with it all bud. It seems promising. :) 

Don't forget me when you are rich and famous. :lol:

If I'm intent on insulting you or being rude, I will be obvious, not ambiguous about it.
I'm only big and bad, to those who have an over-active imagination.

...and then give TheSaint his $10,000 back

If only.

In reality he'd be asking me to donate again ... and a bigger amount. :lol:

@TheSaint Thanks bud. I promise to buy you a lifetime supply of Krispy Creme donuts after I become a millionaire :muttley:

Uhh, so TheSaint donates $10,000 to you, github matches the donation, you get $20,000 ?

Not so fast, there are two things that would get in the way:

  1. GitHub only matches up to $5000 for each eligible "sponsored person"
  2. They review each transaction to check if it is eligible for the matching fund, so stuff like this wouldn't happen :lol:

GitHub is now owned by Microsoft, isn't it? Are they giving you a job offer? No strings attached open source development co-sponsorship? Sounds wonderful.

I wish. This is not a job offer nor am I employed by anyone, this is just a community thing and GitHub is only providing a platform for developers to accept $

The GitHub Matching Fund is an initiative to encourage community funding, it's not something that will go on forever. Each sponsored person is actually only eligible for the first 12 months to get matching funds. And if I recall correctly they aren't accepting any new applicants to this fund.

Hi everyone,

I am proud to announce that we have our first sponsor, they wish to remain anonymous but they will always have my gratitude :)

They have donated enough to fully fund 2 hours of development, and I have spent approximately the same amount of time working on ECI's parser again. I'm currently stuck at an issue with the parser, some of you may have noticed my new topic about it:

I've been trying to think of a solution but I haven't been able to come with up with any, but I hope to do more research this week. I will post any updates here next week :)
