Appreciation


#1

Greetings All,

I use a product called MRTG, also a GPL product. For reference take a look
at http://ee-staff.ethz.ch/~oetiker/webtools/mrtg/

The author found an ingenious way of being rewarded for his efforts.

He setup a CDROM/DVD wish list on www.amazon.com and asks anyone who would
like to show their appreciation to purchase an item from the wish list and
have it delivered to him.

I would like to propose that Jesse set’s up such a list and allows us to
show our appreciation for his knowledge, efforts and time.

For me, and I presume for the most of us, the R150 it would cost to purchase
a CDROM/DVD from Amazon would be a small price to pay for software of this
calibre. Just 1 well-managed request would easily cover this expense.

Jesse, let us know where we can find your list and I would love to become
the first person to show our appreciation for your software.

Jens,
I greatly appreciate the sentiment. I’m quite glad that folks
find my work on RT useful. I’ve put the beginnings of a wishlist
together at http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/wishlist/2GMHUDAFBT2XR

Next time I overhaul the website, I’ll add the info there too.

    Thanks,

I got a DVD in the mail yesterday. I just wanted to publically thank Jens
for being the first person to buy me something off my wishlist. (Someone
else actually bought me a few other things first, but I won’t know who it
is until the package shows up).

Y’all are wonderful. I’m constantly impressed by what a great user community
RT has.

    Thanks,

Emacs is a pretty good operating system, but Unix has a better editor.
