It has been almost four years since our last fundraiser.

Wow.

And this year ..... this fundraiser ....

Wow.

I tried to put a wrap-up message on the fundraiser page at www.javaranch.com/funraiser.jsp

Hi curious to know when the server upgrade will be taking place!, or even when the quietest times are on the forum that would enable me to post multiple replies to different people that would benefit the forum. I see you have reportedly got enough money now for the server upgrade, is there an ETA for the implementation?

With volunteers, we (I?) never ask for an ETA.

I can say that the server is now in our hands.

Wow. that's really nice. I feel so sorry to have missed this as i was out of station and fell sick. Thats why could not visit the site in the meantime and contribute in time. Is there a way to take part now?

I seriously and wholeheartedly felt this excellent site deserves much more contributions as it is like a mother feeding the required milk to the kids, we people take so much from it. I personally have got my knowledge improved and i am deeply indebted to JavaRanch! I would very proudly say.

I love JavaRanch!

Thanks for your interest
The regular donations page is always open, which pays for tea and biscuits and hosting costs

No, this fundraiser is complete and we've already determined who gets free books, etc. Sorry.

Update: The McGraw-Hill books are all going out Monday.

All other books should have been sent already.

There was some confusion and that didn't happen. I now have an e-mail confirming that the books (very recently) went out. We should expect to get them in a week or two.

I got my McGraw-Hill book in yesterday's (Monday's) mail. The book was mailed from New York City and I live in New York City, so I expect I am in the first wave of them. This should give an idea of we should all expect to get the book though. As usual, expect it to take a little longer if you are outside the US.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
