In order to provide even more funds to OpenBSD, and as a general response to my own "you should pool donations if the banks are expensive" post here earlier, I've decided to hold a fund-raiser event called Slackathon 2006. While aimed at Swedes, we won't turn anyone away as long as they are prepared to donate!

All of the donations will go straight to OpenBSD and OpenSSH. More/current information is available at the following links: English Version / Swedish Version

    I'm not sure how much this is going to bring in (and this is not a complaint, by any means!), but it's good to see the OpenBSD community coming together to support itself.

    I'm working at a small non-profit, but I make sure that every time I install OpenBSD, I get the latest CD set. Hell, I even ordered a book with the hopes that some of that will make its way back to the project.

    Janne, great idea! Naturally, I would like to see post fund-raiser commentary, e.g. how much money was raised, who attended, photos of the event, etc.

      Yes, we'll publish whatever comes up in recordings and photos. The sum will most definately get posted. Unless evil things happen, we'll have a
      live webpage counting the donations and project it somewhere on the event for everyone to see. (and from the outside too of course)

    "see OpenBSD create SSH-keys for minutes on that slow 32bit sparc"

      If you can't wait, you can generate keys on a fast (but of course totally trusted!) machine and transfer them (securely!) to the new machine before the first boot.

      But waiting for those SSH keys to be generated on the slow system itself earns you extra geek points ;-)

        Recently obtained a 100MHz laptop from someone who wanted to throw the old little thing in the trash. It was a pleasure to install OpenBSD 3.8 on the thing! It's like it started it's second life.

      Ok then, "stare for minutes", then they move along while it's still creating
      keys. ;)
