I just got off the phone with Codeman. (Mr. Linux Hacker to anyone who doesn't know.) He's doing well, but the company he used to work for ran out of funds, and he's now "on vacation for a while".
Codeman is far too humble to ever wear his problems on his face. (I had to tell him over 15 times to post a PayPal or Amazon link on the site. Bandwidth costs, especially every time he gets slash-dotted.)
I've spent far too many hours tinkering with all kinds of machines thanks to this board. I feel it's more then fair to give a little back to him. For all of those that haven't and can, just send him a few coins off the Amazon link up top, to extend his vacation. I did, and it's past due: Order Summary #700105727308, $20. I'm sure he's interested in any job offers too!?
So bottom line, Codeman may be too humble to beg, but I'm not. Apologies in advance to anyone who might be offended by this.
PS - Codeman, don't bother erasing this thread unless you take away my admin. rights. Please don't ;)
