Help me buy a more powerful computer for future Gender Censi!

by Cassian in Wales, United Kingdom


I was away over the weekend, and yesterday I noticed that the funding had gone into my bank account but I'd just gotten home and I was recovering from being away, so today (just now!) I ordered the new laptop AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!

So what with some nice people sending me money outside of Crowdfunder, and fees, and me getting the price of the laptop wrong (because I didn't clock the "from" in "from £1,249.99" and the more powerful one was £1,449.00), here's how it went:

  • Raised through Crowdfunder: £1,430.00
  • Sent elsewise: £100.00
  • Total: £1,530.00

And then:

  • Crowdfunder fees: £63.83
  • Amount received after fees deducted and donations outside of Crowdfunder added: £1,466.17
  • Cost of [more powerful] laptop: £1,449.00
  • Remaining: £17.17

I feel like a doofus for not triple-checking the laptop price, I've made this mistake on crowdfunders before (like, not realising that I needed to add 20% to the survey software price for the VAT), and I probably will again, ugh. :D But thankfully all costs are covered and my laptop is due to arrive 15-20th October, in 10-15 days!

It's all very exciting, I'm really looking forward to my laptop not randomly turning itself off when I open it in the morning!

So much gratitude to everyone - looking forward to getting the UK results report made!
