    Sure, thank you. Can I just send TPF $50 ear marked for going towards a laptop should such a bounty be established? I'm not good at writing grant propals or organizing these kind of things. But I do have $50 to give towards something like this that the community might find fun, exciting, and unifying.
      Rather make it $5000, or find 100 others to join you via crowd-funding.

      IIRC is most of the money donated to TPF earmarked.

      I suppose the overhead to manage a micro-grant will outweigh the $50.

        This needs to unify. I think something like that would just cause more fracturing.
