On Sunday, while Shawn Powers and his family were at church their house burned down. While his family was safe; they lost all their pets to the fire. Shawn works for as the Technology Director for a school district in Michigan, sidelines as an Associate Editor at Linux Journal and is a pretty funny guy. The kind folks at Linux Journal have started a ChipIn fund to help Shawn and his family get back on their feet. If you’ve got some spare change in your PayPal account; please think about dropping some of it there. Thanks!
