I have enough misgivings about doing this at all without putting it on
the main cygwin page but I did plan on doing that at some point if I got
links to others for contributions.  I don't feel right about putting up
a page which just asks for money specifically for me and me alone.

There are links on the page which show "who's who".  And, I was only
looking for donations for this particular problem.  If you don't know
what "hyperthreading" is then you don't have the problem and there is no
reason to donate.  Ditto "cgf".
