Here comes the new challenge grant!
If you'd been planning to make a contribution to the project, this is a great way to make your money go twice as far. For one thing, if you donate more than $32.50 -- the present cost of a ten-chapter subscription (see the How publication will work page for details), plus a ten-dollar donation -- your own subscription, including a print copy of the book when we go to press, will be all handled.
With your donation, you'll also be helping drive down the cost of the project as a whole, and the cost of your fellow readers' subscriptions. Ted Ts'o's first grant, and the generous contributions of those who matched it, has already reduced the cost of subscriptions by 20%.
So watch the sidebar for progress. Within only six hours of the challenge opening up, we're already well on the way to matching our challenge donor's $1000. The last grant was matched within thirty-six hours. Help beat the record!
