If your reputation is under 10 you give out even rep.
Well your rep WAS 15, now its 19. Not sure what kind of a handsome and wise individual would make such a glorious contribution, but whatever the case it probably enough to help you on your way.
Not aware of any reason it wouldn't work for you now, though.
I would like sum rep up too =P Been trying to rep others up all the time to no avail
