FreeBSD Foundation looking for Donations!

Hey peeps!

As most, if not all of you know I am very active with regards to my favourite server operating system FreeBSD. FreeBSD has their very own Foundation which helps out with costs for Legal matters, costs for people to go to conferences so that the developer community gets out, and talks to people (Their director Sam Leffler was at SCALE 5x which I attended).

They are currently trying to raise money for the community, and to be able to do even more in the sense of the BSD community getting more hardware support and other such goodies. They have a Donate page up at . If you have a few extra dollars you are not going to use, why not donate to them, and help the operating system grow bigger.

In case you are wondering why I am posting this here, I am posting this here, both for my love of the OS, and also because runs on this great OS. Sure, the money may not go straight to, in the end it comes back to us getting a more stable OS to run the website on.

If you have some extra cash, help them out and get them to their goal. Anything will help them!

Sent the link to our finance director. Though I don't know where the company spends it sponsorship funds.

I'm going to see if I can get my employers to make some kind of donation. One of our brands runs entirely on FreeBSD servers.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
