Yes, Diego, you’re not the only one with a birthday in November. =) Mine will be this Saturday. I’m not as modest as you, though — here’s links to my Amazon wishlist and PayPal to prove it! Consider PayPal my “Saving for a Mac Mini / PS3 / nice LCD” account. My Amazon wishlist contains a number of books ranging from less than $10 to more than $100, many of which would help in Linux work, others with grad school, and a few for (gasp!) entertainment.
If you appreciate what I’ve done for Gentoo in the past 3 1/2 years, feel free to give something back.
