Happy New Year!

Here's hoping that all your links are good ones. Your site is one I come to every day.

Maybe vonskippy will contribute a negative amount.

Good Job Dumbass, I'm sure srlinuxx appreciates you pissing off future donations.

re: dumbass

I was trying to figure out what exactly he meant. I figured it had some connection to your comments which some may characterize as "negative."

Vonskippy has done a lot for tuxmachines. Many of you know that he provided the server (with a spare mobo) that our site runs on, but he also sent me a new monitor and harddrive for my desktop a few months ago when mine went out. So, Vonskippy has been a good friend to us.

I'll take this opportunity to thank those that did send in a donation in response to Poodle's request. They are greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Someone's a little touchy. Looks like I hit a nerve.

Happy Belated Birthday

Happy Belated Birthday, Susan! I know a couple people born on the 31st, I've always considered them special/lucky for it. Let's hope that always holds true for you!

wow

I know I don't agree with Von Skippy on everything. Where's the fun in that?

I have seen him post interesting opinions and include information to back up his opinions.

That in itself is a meaningful contribution to any forum or interactive site.

Personally, I don't think it would "feel' like TuxMachines without him.

Just my two cent.

re: wow

Then there's the priceless gift of laugher that he (Vonskippy) and Poodles (and sometimes others) have provided.

Sometimes those little jewels of silliness (and/or sarcasm) come at the most opportune times for me.

You got that right!

Thanks to everyone who donated a little something

Just wanted to say thanks to everyone who stuck a few dollars in srlinuxx's g-string this year and to those who have contributed hardware to keep this wonderful news site up and running.

Positive results from Outreach Program for Women

In 2013, Debian participated in both rounds of the GNOME Outreach Program for Women (OPW). The first round was run in conjunction with GSoC and the second round was a standalone program. The publicity around these programs and the strength of the Google and Debian brands attracted a range of female candidates, many of whom were shortlisted by mentors after passing their coding tests and satisfying us that they had the capability to complete a project successfully. As there are only a limited number of places for GSoC and limited funding for OPW, only a subset of these capable candidates were actually selected. The second round of OPW, for example, was only able to select two women. Read more
