Help The Graner Family

From Rikki Kite at Linux Magazine:

My friend and colleague, Amber Graner, lost her home to a fire this week. Luckily, the family wasn’t in the house at the time and no one was injured. Pete and Amber were at UDS, the kids were with relatives, and the dog was rescued from the fire.

Even if you have home-owner’s insurance, the immediate expenses add up as you scramble to get some necessities, including clothing, toiletries, food, and new housing. The Graner family is well-known in the open source community, and many of their colleagues and friends have expressed a desire to help them get back on their feet. I created a page for anyone who would like to chip in to help the Graner Family get some clothes and other necessities: http://granerfamily.chipin.com/the-graner-family

Every little bit helps.

Amber helps with the Ubuntu Weekly News and writes the Ubuntu News (among other things) in Full Circle. If you can, please donate something to Amber’s Chip-In page. As Rikki said, every little helps.

The next issue of FCM will be released when the contributions to the Graner fund rise.

Please donate, either that or something ‘nasty’ may happen to the next issue!

Full Circle Gameathon!

So here’s the plan:

  • I post Ronnie’s idea and take all the credit for it :D
  • You guys come up with a selection of free and open source online games that we could play.
  • After a week or so, or after we have enough ideas, I’ll post again (on our forum) with a poll so we can vote for a game.
  • Once we have decided on a game, we’ll find a victim kind person to host a Full Circle tournament, then come up with some rules.
  • We’ll set up a leaderboard, and we can compete for the title of “Full Circle Gamer of the Month” (or a better title if you can come up with one).
  • The person that is leading at the time of the magazines release will be crowned with the monthly title we decide on.
  • At the end of the year, the person that has won the most months will get “Full Circle Gamer of the Year”!

We may also rotate the game each month, or every couple of months, depending on how it goes. If we do this we’ll create a new poll so a new Game can be decided on.

Put your game idea on this post here on our forum… 

Let the games BEGIN!  :D
