As some of you may have noticed, I have not been committing over the past few weeks.

The reason, sadly, is that I am unlikely to be contributing to AROS any longer due to financial circumstances. Within the next week or so I will have to either have my computer and other possessions sold or will be forced to take them to the dump, which as you can tell means I will no longer have the means to contribute even if I wanted to.

I wish those involved in AROS the best of luck in the future, and would like to thank the people who have contributed/donated to me in the past - it has been much appreciated and I have made some good friends over the years, but now I can no longer continue.

Take Care,
Kalamatee

p.s. - If anyone needs to get in touch I may be reachable by email still if I am able to access it, though don't expect an immediate response, but I will be unlikely to check anywhere else.

whats the situation? maybe some sort of regular pledge could be arranged by the community as reward for your contributions. im short on funds myself currently, but if enough people declared themselves maybe we could fill into the gap together.

I'm sorry to hear that. You were one of the first people I met when I started here. losing you in the AROS community is a tragedy and you will be missed. I hope that everything works out for you and can re-join us ASAP. Until then, take care of yourself brother.

I'm so sorry to hear this Kalamatee.

Will you let us create a fund on power2people to help you out?

We can pick out some of the work you've already done and create a bounty for that. Is there a completion (payment) date that would really help you?

Don't see this as charity by the way but a thank you and part-payment for the countless hours of brilliant work you've put into AROS.

Come on, let's do this people...

Chris

also a good idea. except that the bounty might need to be fully funded in order to be taken and paid off, which might or might not happen, at least it could delay things.

@wawa,

Sorry, in my haste I missed your original proposal. No reason we couldn't do both. power2people has an 'AROS Development Fund' which accepts monthly payments.

A separate fund could be created or with the agreement of the other devs, perhaps the AROS Develeopment Fund itself could be used to help him out?

>> except that the bounty might need to be fully funded in order to be taken and paid off, which might or might not happen, at least it could delay things.

Not sure I get what you mean by 'fully funded'? I don't think there's a minimum funding requirement, just a completion date on which date the money could be released (actually it could be released earlier because the work as defined in the bounty will already have been done). It might be easier to get people to make a one-off payment than a 'subscription' but of course none of us know what Kalamatee's circumstances are...
