let's keep pushing $ in drobbins' direction, folks. I just sent another one in, and I hope to drop in more $ every couple of weeks, esp when more large shirts are available. Yanno, I'd buy multiple copies of every gentoo-designed garment anyone could put up there: tshirt, sweatshirt, etc. There are got lots of cool gentoo designs.

and for the current gentoo maintainers: you guys rock, too. thanks to all -- wylbur.

For anyone that's keeping count, you can add another $40 to the pot.

By the way, this thread was just slashdotted.

I'm sad to see drobbins go :cry:
Never knew him personally but he wrote some of the best Linux articles I've ever read (besides of course just creating the best Linux distro).
Just ordered my t-shirt.

just saw the news on /. about the debt. Since it looks like somebody's keeping count, this poor college student just donated $10. First (real) Linux distro I've used and I couldn't imagine anything better. And yes, the community is the best. Thanks for the gift of Gentoo Daniel and hope we can help to show our appreciation.

I've been using Gentoo for about 6 months now and I love it. I saw the story on slashdot and I donated $20 (all I can afford right now!)

I went ahead and gave $10 for now. I'll definitely purchase a t-shirt when they come back in stock (my Cafepress is getting a bit worn out).

Good luck, drobbins!

Ok I've read the 12 pages (almost) and just to make sure:
All donations and money raised by the store are going to Robbins pot right?

Tomorrow morning (don't have my wallet now, 3 am :P) I'm donating/buying $20us + 2 t-shirts + 1 dual disc

[edit] where are the mugs? and the stickers?? I want a sticker!!!
[edit2] *donated*

I've been a happy user for the last few months after years (and years and years) of Debian. Great distro - love the install. No seriously, it's clean and doesn't treat you like a moron. I've taught people to use linux using just the gentoo install as a working lesson. So I've kicked in $20 for Daniel's fund. Good work Daniel, you will be missed.

I donated a while back, however I am still waiting for that nifty coffee mug he has pictured on the web site. I may get a bunch as they look like a nice gifts for my caffeine addicted friends and coworkers. Hurry, my "coffee" pot runneth over...

Although I don't post on the forums very often:

- I'm using Gentoo on 2 servers at work.
- One of them is being used by 40 people.
- Portage is a "maintenance dream".

On the behalf of me and my colleagues, 20$ for Daniel...
