Not really clear if he's giving one million to start AND matching first time donations up to $10,000 each, or if he's matching first time donations until he's given one million... but nice nonetheless.

Interesting that the guy only started at Tulane and didn't even graduate, yet is compelled to donate this.

You're right, Pete. It wasn't clear. Either way, it's still very generous.

Sure, but you know what they say about assuming. :mrgreen:

I have to admit, when I saw that the guy didn't even finish at Tulane but is giving this money nonetheless, I thought, "that's a guy that had FUN at Tulane"... ifyaknowwhatImean...

My final boss before I retired at Lockheed Martin was a Florida grad. When he saw me wearing a Tulane ballcap he seemed to know a lot about us. Turns out he spent his freshman year at Tulane and had too much FUN ifyaknowwhatimean and his folks put an end to it by making him come home and go local.

He was also a retired skimmer Navy captain, so there were two areas of non-hacker-ness which allowed me to bust his balls.
