I just wanted to thank this site and its keepers for the excellent Linux news it provides for its users every day. I browse through the new links here daily, and TuxMachines has become my #1 source for interesting news and cool new/ old sites.
As a blogger myself (Just Another Tech Blog), who has been linked to by this site a few times, I'd also like to extend thanks for the many new visitors that my site received from your mention (as I am sure many other sites have also).
A have donated a bit to this site, as just a token of my gratitude for all that TuxMachines does the for the Linux community. It isn't much (sorry... unemployed teen here), but I hope that it helps a little. Maybe my clicks on your ads will make a little difference too...
Best of luck to this site and its maintainers!
