hi <br><br>As many of you know, James Burgett of the Alameda County Computer Recycling Center has given 30 Ubuntu boxen to our local public middle school FOSS project. Actually, this email is being written on one of those boxen.
<br><br>Now, CNN is running a contest to see who the most popular hero of our day.
Number one currently is a guy who is working to prevent the extinction
of gorillas, certainly a laudable goal. But James is number two. <br><br>Now we have a chance to support him by voting in a CNN
contest to determine who is the most favorite hero. Saving Gorillas is
awesome, but IMHO, giving away 16k Linux boxes to people who really
need them is even better. Please consider digging this story below,
and then voting for James on the CNN site. Thanks either way! <br><br><a href="http://digg.com/linux_unix/Man_is_Dugg_4_donating_16_000_Linux_boxes_now_is_no_2_in_CNN_hero_contest" target="_blank" onclick="return top.js.OpenExtLink(window,event,this)">

Most of you already knew that. But it bears repeating.
