Re: Christmas fund raising for TXP Developers

I’m quite positive about who’s who for most of the names, but to give credit where credit is due please send me a forum email with both your name and optional URL to complete the patrons list.

Re: Christmas fund raising for TXP Developers

Fund raising report:

  • Sencer kindly asked to not receive anything this year, although he’s been a good boy. :)
  • Robert and Ruud decided to receive the corresponding amount in PayPal cash instead of gifts. I guess this is better since shipping gifts from Amazon or whatever, we could have wasted a chunk of the sum in shipping fees and so on. So, in this way they get the full amount and can buy whatever the like. Hope you’re okay with that.

As for the amount:

  • we collected 548,80 EUR circa (in changes every day, depending on the currency exchange rate, since part of the sum in in USD).

I’ve proceeded to send to Robert and Ruud the part in PayPal credit, while waiting for the part in eChecks to be accredited (ETA from 09/01/2009 to 13/01/2009).

Thanks to everyone and if you have further questions feel free to contact me directly at fede (at) kero (dot) it.

Re: Christmas fund raising for TXP Developers

Many thanks to all the people who donated even in rough economic times like these. It is much appreciated. A big thank you also to those who donate their time to make this a pleasant and supporting community… and of course a happy new year to all of you!

Some of it will be spent on This Riot Life, the latest CD of the wonderful canadian singer-songwriter Veda Hille, who especially (well, maybe not) for Robert covered the song “Road to Nowhere”.

Re: Christmas fund raising for TXP Developers

Wow, those Ts do look nice. I would love an MBP sleeve with that on it. A coffee mug would be sweet too (black). Maybe we need to add a store to .com, wet? This design plus a couple of other variations, maybe? :)

Re: Christmas fund raising for TXP Developers

Hi all,

americans can buy those t-shirts here:
TXPMag Spreadshirt Shop

The shop exists already for 3 years and a couple of shirts (not many though) were sold. I put the earnings into the shirts for ruud an wet.

It´s a good idea to offer shirts and mugs on the frontpage of the re-designed textpattern.com, i think.
