Before I begin a big thank you to all the sponsors of this years SwagBag…
A particular thanks goes to the Dell Equallogic team who brought over a huge cooler bag of goodies!
…AND MANY MANY MORE!
Yesterday I spent some time collecting raffle tickets for the Swagbag Competition. I’m pleased to announce that Phil Lakin who works at iLand was called at the draw.
I started harassing folks to buy tickets at the vBeers/vCurry event the evening before – and managed to range £100 on the night, and then on the day we managed to raise another £200 – so that makes the total £300.
As you might know I’ve been collecting the royalties to my SRM 4.0 and View 4.5 books/guides throughout this year and last. I’m pleased to say that I will be able to donate that money as well. So I will soon be writing a cheque to UNICEF for £5,300 (about $8,500 USD). Thanks to everyone who bought a ticket yesterday and for everyone who downloaded the books, and in their way helped contribute to making this world a better place for children all over the globe.
