A Thank-You to Techrights Supporters

A somewhat belated call for support and a thank-you to existing supporters

Christmas tree



Summary: How to support Techrights and why we plan to become more active in 2015

HALF a decade ago Techrights published a lot of articles, at most around 30 per day (requiring well over 100 hours of research and writing per week). We have published 27 articles in the past week in an effort to bring the site back to pace after a relatively slow 2014.



"The more tips we receive, the more resilient we can make the site in the face of DDOS attacks (we suffered several last year) and the more motivated we become to write articles here."As always, we welcome contributions in the form of guest articles, links (either suggested links sent to us or promotion of our articles in so-called 'social' media) and for those who have money to spare in support of the site there is the tip jar. The more tips we receive, the more resilient we can make the site in the face of DDOS attacks (we suffered several last year) and the more motivated we become to write articles here. Enough tips also leave us less dependent on external employment and therefore increase the amount of time spent on this site. It is 2 AM where I am at the moment (Manchester) and I stayed up late in an effort to justify the tips left to us just before Christmas. I have been doing that since New Year's Eve. My wife and I don't live lavishly and our main passion in here; most of our time is spent writing in our sites, notably Techrights and Tux Machines.

There are many ways to support this site and those who appreciate what we do and have done for nearly a decade are strongly encouraged to 'give back', to to speak, even by just promoting the articles or recommending the site to peers/colleagues. Supporting Techrights also means supporting Tux Machines, which advances GNU/Linux and reaches a broad (and still expanding) audience.
