Last year I gave Damian $2000, which put me quite a long way up the listings of donors. Which was nice. Trouble is I'm now a (relatively) poorly paid permie with no spare cash.
Then I remembered, I still haven't billed O'Reilly for my Not Just For Damians article. So, if they just send the cheque to YAS instead of me there's no worries about converting money from dollars to sterling and back.
And I hereby pledge that if I sell O'Reilly any more articles about Perl 6 I will donate the fee to the YAS funding drive.
Suddenly I'm feeling a good deal less guilty.
