Get your name in the relayd book

from the bit-part-for-sale dept.

Michael W Lucas is offering the chance to get your name in his forthcoming book on relayd and httpd:

There’s a long tradition amongst science fiction writers of selling bit parts in books in exchange for charity donations. It’s called tuckerization.

I see no reason why science fiction writers should have all the fun.

I need a sample user for the forthcoming book on OpenBSD’s httpd and relayd. This user gets referred to in the user authentication sections as well as on having users manage web sites. They will also get randomly called out whenever it makes sense to me.

That sample user could be you.

All it would cost is a donation to the OpenBSD Foundation.

See Michael's blog for details, and donate your way to fame(?) if you can!

  We all know that Bill Allaire will do everything he can to win this. He won the first copy of AO2e. He paid $4200 for the first signed copy of the OpenBSD 6.0 CD.

Don't let that discourage you from bidding.

I would encourage everyone to make Bill's victory as expensive as possible for him.
