This is good, very good. I'll throw in $15 (I'd do more if I could but circumstances prevent it).

Good point. The last thing we want is another Ratman debacle. As such, the link has been removed. If we're sure we want this thing, and can gather the funds to pay for it, I think we'd be safest if the machine's future caretaker is willing to buy it now and collect the money from the rest of the community later. If this goes as planned, the machine will belong to everyone who donated, and the person who actually has it in their possession is just the caretaker of it.
If that were to happen, I think the best way to do it would be for the "caretaker" to decide how much they want to contribute in order to be the biggest donor and thus have the right to full on own it, and solicit $2,434 minus that amount. That way, they would legally, morally, and ethically own it free and clear (similar to how drx owns the NA S2 proto even though I was probably one of the bigger donors if not the second biggest, simply because he put more of his own money into it than I did :P, although I don't remember the actual donation breakdown but I clearly remember throwing $300 in for that one).
