I need EVERYONE'S attention for just a moment!!!

Post by Kendall »

Most everybody has a dollar or two laying around (or the rough equivalent in another currency). Most everybody could give a dollar or two to a good cause. Most everybody with a dollar or two SHOULD consider this: It's come to my attention that Mint team member and maintainer of the Xfce edition, merlwiz79, is in need of a new computer. I've started a fund simply named "Buy Merlwiz A New Computer" and have set up a donation link to help get this done.

Merlwiz builds the Xfce edition with such a level of detail that it blows away most everything else in it's department, and he does this in the face of a very large amount of adversity coming from many other obligations in his life. I think it's time the community really stood behind that and gave back to him a portion of what he gives to us. If you have a dollar or two laying around, you really have no excuse. If everybody throws in a dollar, then we can get him one particularly wicked system. So to be blunt: give us a dollar or two and lets buy Merlwiz a new computer, follow the link below:

Hi Kendal,

I'd be delighted to contribute but have a long running dispute with PayPal, which prevents me using them. Is there any other method by which I can send a donation.

Hi Kendall,

I bought Exploder a computer when he needed one, I'm sure I can do the same or at least help with this. I started a thread in the team section for you, Merlwiz and I to talk about the details.

Kendall,

You should have gotten my contribution through your original post in the XFCE sub-forum. Nice to see such a good response in this thread.

I donated only the 'entry' amount, but that's all I can do at the moment. However, I do believe there will soon be much more such 'entry' pennies to fill up the bag. Good luck and thanks for excellent job!

What if I just have an old computer I am willing to donate?

It is a HP dc5100 with a pentium 4, 80 gb hard drive, 1 GB ram.

Would that work?

Just donated $10. If it ends up Clem will take care of this then just put the money towards Mint.
