Everyone needs a helping hand

As part of my work, I write for Linux Format magazine. I like the magazine and read it monthly, but did you know it can help in flagging Open Source projects?

Linux Format has recently started a 'Help Wanted' column, to highlight Free Software (and community) projects in need of assistance - be it coders, doc writers or testers. Recently featured projects include Bochs, Freerails, the NMS CGI scripts, PicoGUI, Sorcerer GNU/Linux and the Electronic Frontier Foundation. They want to hear from anyone who'd like their project featured. Email: linuxformat@futurenet.co.uk

It is great to see a magazine taking an active role in helping Open Source projects, and I hope it can help with yours.

EVERY open source project needs help, and I bet most of us would welcome the ego boost of seeing our pet project mentioned in a real paper magazine.

So, OK. If Linux Format want to mention my helpdesk project (http://www.sourceforge.net/projects/f2w) I might even buy that issue of the mag, even though the cover disc is mostly RPMs (or was, when I gave up buying it a while ago for that reason).

But maybe they'd better not - Acorn User published a couple of my submissions and look what happened to them. No, really, my code isn't that evil, honest!

The URL for any non-specified link:

Why, it's http://www.google.com/.
