So far, Steve's Microwave Fund
has received a fair share of donations ranging from the simple, some CDs, to the extreme, my monitor.
There are two main classes of donators, Major ones
, and Minor ones
. Major donators are people who have donated large items, items that have produced "unique, and amazing" effects, or just a large number of different items.
Minor donators are people who have donated one thing or another, or suggested something to microwave that was ordinary, or uneventful.
Both forms of donators are welcome with open arms, and will never be turned away.
Major Donators include the following:
is by far the person who has donated the most to the fund. His list is extensive:
is the second highest donator to the fund, and while his list is not as extensive, it has it's moments. He has been present at 75% of all microwavings:
hasn't donated much to the fund in terms of items, but he has donated his time, his camera, and most importantly, his microwave. Without him, this research may never have been possible. Mike has been present at all microwavings.
After the use of his microwave, and camera, his most important donation is his broken Xbox 360
. That proved very interesting.
Maria is our resident voice of caution, warning us of the dangers of certain things, and when other things won't do anything when microwaved. She also is one of the smartest persons I know, and is able to use her knowledge to think up new interesting things to microwave, so far though, she hasn't told us any of them, but not for a lack of trying on our part.
Maria also is a skilled engineer, and was crucial to helping me build both CD houses
, and a few other things I have made to microwave. She has been present at 95% of all microwavings.
Minor Donators include the following:
Steph has donated a decent amount of stuff, but all basic, nothing spectacular
- Ink from her broken ink jet printer
- The 40 watt light bulbs
- Some CDs
Michelle donated the link cable to her old Ti-83 graphing calculator.
Brian donated some CDs, and a pair of broken head phones he found.
Jeff donated some CDs, and the use of his microwave for a few attempts at the 175 Watt light bulb
Juli donated the bublewrap, even though it didn't do anything, it was nice.
Dan (a different Dan) donated the Vacuum tubes
, which were gave some very nice effects.
Matthew sent me an email saying to try a paper clip. I hit myself on the head when I didn't think of it myself.
Scott donated his old ASUS motherboard.
