I'll soon be there!

GIMPS helped me find a new job, understanding Math principles of Number theory, writing a good factorization program and thilled me with a useful search.

It's the minimum I can do to express my pride and thankfulness of being here. Thank you GIMPS!

Per the donate page, gifts above $500 will receive a receipt. The current tax law would indicate that the figure should be $250.

I made my donation without redeeming tax tickets. George and Scott deserve it.

What I was referring to, is that any amount above $250, should cause them to send a "thank you" that mentions that the giver did not get anything in return. I am all for larger donations,

It is per: http://www.irs.gov/publications/p526...link1000229833 that 250 is the minimum level that requires ack.
