This was actually what I was looking for, and I am glad that I finally came here! Thanks for sharing and keep up the good work.
I wanna purchase this one for my business.
A note about the followup — Pledgie never handles anyone’s money, it goes straight to the PayPal account specified by the campaign creator. Check that PayPal account for the funds.
For anyone curious about the whole DarwinPorts, darwinports.com, etc thing, see:
The return path for the spam e-mails is firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ve e-mailed that address directly, I’ll see how that goes.
I received another identical spam from these people this morning, Wednesday June 18th.
I think darwinports should address another concern, as Douglas Muth has pointed out: why do we keep getting daily spam?
I most certainly will NOT donate anything, and I regret even getting interested in DarwinPorts.
Provide an unsubscribe link and stop flooding people with e-mail.
I received yet another email from these people just this morning.
Do they think that continuing to spam me is going to make me want suddenly start donating money to them?
To address some of the concerns here: DarwinPorts is the original. It was started two years prior to MacPorts. While there is certainly a lot of shared code, there is a critical difference between the two: MacPorts is hosted by Apple. The important thing about DarwinPorts is that it is an independent effort that will survive even if Apple stops hosting MacPorts or were to elimitate all efforts by Apple employees for the ports system. The server is sorely needed.
“Since darwinports.com is an attempt to make money by repackaging the macports.org project’s work, I just don’t see the point in making this donation.”
I’ve received no less than 4 emails from the address “email@example.com” in the last 24 hours, asking me to come here and give them money.
Not only is there no “unsubscribe” mechanism, but when I replied and asked them to stop emailing me, the email to them bounced!
Something smells rotten here.
Well, I don’t understand all the computer lingo so what rhwood said doesn’t make sense. I’d love it if someone could explain it to me?
Is this a hardware like hammer and nails store? Or hardware like CPUs thing?
I’m sorry I guess I just don’t understand it.
