I have had to expand the story on the Gofundme site as I made the page public - you never know some of the Billionaire software moguls might see a situation they were once in - I'm not holding my breath.
Sorry for posting in the beginners section but this is an Emergency.
One of our own - Won't say the name because people have pride and probably doesn't want a gofundme setup to smooth the next month or so.
He had a large project invested thousands in money and all his time with a demonstration to a large client. Google deprecated one of their APIs somehow Livecode wasn't informed - nobody noticed and no bug report was ever posted the client has pulled out and will not pay. Suffice to say the gentleman in question posted on the list and he wasn't joking about finding a cliff to jump off.
You can tell when somebody is flippant and when they are serious.
I've setup a Gofundme at
I have transferred full control of withdrawals to that person (or his family) so I cannot touch it.
Please go there and donate. Lets see, if 500 people donate £5 that would help immensely while he rethinks and finds another client - it sounded like he had bet the farm.
There are more than 500 people on this board over a month I would presume - JUST DO IT PLEASE!
There are No excuses if you can pay for internet access then if you cannot give at least £5 or £10 to help someone who could one day be you then don't expect the universe to treat you kindly? - Think about it. I'm serious if you saw his posts and you don't feel the same way as me then shame on you. But just because I said £5 or $10 doesn't mean if you can do more that you shouldn't.
My late father taught me the above - by actions not words - And I have done it more times than I care to recount - I once "lent" £3000 to an acquaintance when the banks were going to foreclose on his mortgage - 1990 money. When in 1994 I had a brush with Cancer and couldn't function 100% , I called him to ask if he could pay some of it back monthly -_ I hadn't asked while I was ok - probably never would have - his answer "I thought you gave it me" Mum and Dad came to my aid - I was lucky! - We are now that family."The real meaning of life is to plant Trees under who's shade you do not expect to Sit"
Please get out of your apathy - that somebody else will do it or "I''ll do it later".
If you don't have Family or Real Friends you have nothing.!!
Kindest Regards LagiReal Friends are the Family we choose ourselves
