Great CMS; timely updates; plug-in developers who answer questions and develop their tools. Who could ask for more?! Here’s to 2006!

Many thanks,
tim

Re: A Christmas Present For Our Developers And Moderators

Hi Textpatterners, here are some updates on the Christmas Present Fund Raising!

First of all, i like to let you know, that the first Christmas Presents are on their way….
This was only possible through our generous donators listed above in my very fist post.
You are great!

I like to send a very special Thank You to one of our donators: this is Anne-Mette Nielsen, mum of Sievert Nielsen.
<font color=”#669933”><em>Anne-Mette, we wish you a Merry Christmas and a peaceful New Year</em></font color=”#669933”>.

Well, you probably like to know what we got for our dev´s and moderators by now?
Well, i picked two items for Sencer from his Amazon wishlist .. the same with Kusors wishlist

Zem loves roasting coffee beans … and Maniqui is a fan of the german electro popgroup Kraftwerk.

The fund raising will last till 31st of Dec 2005 and then be closed down completely.
Any money left by then will go to the Double Joy Farm Project by shareafrica.org.

(The Double Joy Farm Project provides support for this AIDS orphanage of over 100 children. Double Joy provides school six days a week, complete housing, food, and facilities for this orphanage for children orphaned by AIDS.)

Thx for reading
alex

EDIT
Kusor is…

Re: A Christmas Present For Our Developers And Moderators

I figured since I’d make some money by using txp, I’d return the favor! Happy Holidays
