TipJar Info

Since BeForever seems to be down, I’d like to thank everyone for donating to Daniel Switkin’s TipJar, the amount was quite a bit more than expected. I’m closing that TipJar now and sending Daniel a composite check of all the tips. And, as previously posted on BeForever, you can now send in tips for David Reid, the person responsible for bringing Apache and many other ports to BeOS. To send in a tip, get a PayPal account, and send a couple bucks to “deej@beunited.org”. Let’s dig into those pockets and put in a couple of dollars here and there. At the beginning of next month, BeForever will announce a new TipJar recipient, so you only have 2 weeks to donate to David.

    Done it

    Now I have to wait for the PayPal confirmation code. And since I can’t access my CC details online…

    However, I can tell you right away what I would give the most cash for: on LeBuzz you can read that Echo won’t make a BeOS driver for their multichannel audio cards. Bad news. BUT, they are releasing their core driver library opensource. So, I’d be glad to contribute to the development of drivers for the Echo line of audio cards. Any taker?

    Re: Done it

    We have a developer that is going to do it, and we are trying to contact Echo to find out if there is any BeOS code they have done to this point that we might be able to get our hands on. Next step is actually purchasing the Echo gear for the developer so he can start…

    It’s all happening, no worries. :)

    Re: Done it

    Cool! OK, now just let me get my confirmation code from PayPal, and I’ll start dropping my coins in the Tipjar! Thanks Deej!

    GTK, etc.

    Let’s also not forget that David is spearheading the effor to bring GTK and the GIMP to BeOS: neither a small task, and both worthy of much admiration and support.

    Please, everyone, take just a second, right now, to contribute to the TipJar.
