About This Site

slashdot.org is brought to you by a host of cool people. It is owned and maintained by Rob Malda. Thanks go out to Dave DeMaagd for helping out with some of the early perl coding. Thanks go to Mythical Solutions for backup DNS hosting, and my employer, TheImageGroup for letting me run this on a machine plugged into the office T1.

In addition to the techies, the regular list of contributors consist of myself: Rob "CmdrTaco" Malda, Jeff "Hemos" Bates, Kristof "Aeneas" Van Damme, Justin Maurer, Del "mojoski" Simmons, and the tons of people who e-mail stories.. Thanks go to them for helping make this site the cool place that it is.

Other creds: The cool Wilber the Gimp image was by Tuomas Kuosmanen and the famous Tux Linux Penguin is a creation of Larry Ewing. Anything that is copyrighted or trademarked or registered to anyone else is their's. I claim ownership of only the handful of original images I created...

If I left anyone out... please don't hesitate to yell and I'll add you to the list.

If you like this site, feel free to steal the various ads I've got here and post it on your homepage. You can see the whole collection at The Slashdot.org Supporters Page.

Feel free to e-mail a story to me or any of the contributors, or else even just a URL. If you think it is interesting, there is a good chance we will too! The best way to do this is to fill out the Slashdot.org Contribution Form.

    Of what you see in books, believe 75%. Of newspapers, believe 50%. And of
    TV news, believe 25% -- make that 5% if the anchorman wears a blazer.
