---------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Thu, 17 Jul 2014 23:21:51 -0400 From: Patrick Babcock <patrick.babcock at gmail.com> Subject: Semi-annual plea for donations, and other help. Greetings, Beerlings! Take me to your wallet.. For anyone who may have peeked in on the Finances page, the HBD coffers are on the wane. We could definitely use any donation you can spare - and, if you itemize on your US taxes, any donation you make is deductible to the full extent allowable under the law - see the Disclosures link on the HBD website for the IRS determination letter. Also, the pace of life is keeping me from doing as much with the code as required to port the HBD and Brews and Views to new systems. I am looking for some coding help: The current system for the HBD is a redhat-flavor, sendmail-based server. The target is Ubuntu (Debian-flavored), postfix based virtual server operating under Virtualmin. The scripts that drive it are predominantly kornshell, with some perl and C thrown in for good measure. If you are familiar with both OSes, both email servers, ksh, perl, and C, and have the capacity to dig in and assist, pop me a note and let's talk! Brews and Views is on that same redhat flavored box and runs on Discusware Pro. The target machine is, again, virtual and Ubuntu based, and the software is phpBB. Through the brief research I've been able to do with the time available, by installing an old version of phpBB, the Discusware system can be converted to phpBB, and then phpBB can be upgraded to the current version. If this sounds like something you're capable of and willing to tackle, give me a shout. But, primarily, HBD needs funding to continue. Please consider a tax-deductible donation to our continued operations. Cheers! Pat Babcock President Home Brew Digest, Inc. An IRS-recognized 501(c)3 public charity Return to table of contents
