Bounty troubles

A few years ago I solved this bounty and did receive a cheque (check
comment 19).

After receiving the cheque, I went to my bank and tried to claim the
money itself. They told me the date on the cheque was written wrong (it
was a cheque in the future, which wasn't possible) and explained me that
if I would wait until that date happens, I can then claim it.

It had the year number increased by one so I simply waited for a year. 

A year later (last year), I again tried to claim the cheque, they tried
it and a few days later they basically explained me that the bank
account where the money should be transferred from got closed. I even
had to pay 20 euros administrative costs and of course didn't get the
money itself.


Anyway. I'm planning to stop caring about it if the foundation spends
the same amount of money into a new bounty that would improve Camel. I
remember it was a $300 or $350 one.
