The bids will pour in when it's close to the end of the auction. I think that it's a great idea and is for a good cause too. I'd love to be able to bid on it, but it's beyond my means.
The technology poured into it is very impressive and somebody is gonna be a happy camper with this on their desk.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
Thanks for the nice words. Thanks to all the other sponsors for taking what Nvidia and I thought would be a modest little charity project and really taking it above and beyond.
