Oh, no no, Merrit, I'm afraid you've misunderstood. Think "server" 
as in "food server". We need money to hire a waiter to bring Jimbo 
his food and spoon-feed him. That way, he can work on Wikipedia 
16 hours a day without taking a break to eat. If we have enough left 
over, we'll also buy him a catheter.
