18 years ago, I stumbled across the Kingdom of Slackware, where I stayed for quite some time. A few years later, I traveled a bit through the Redhat Commonwealth. Rolled my own nation for a while, a tiny island next to the Great Compile, but it sank. Moved over to the Highlands of Gentoo for a couple of years, then lived for 8 years in the Popular Republic of Ubuntu until last year when I migrated to Archland, where I remain today. I've visited several other places, and do remote business in the Debian Republic and Centosia.

It's the final day to get a credit on the Blender Foundation's Project Mango! Okay, it's really still open until the end of Feb 15 UTC time, but the deadline for being credited on the Blender Foundation's fourth Open Movie is approaching fast.
Their three previous films are Elephant's Dream, Big Buck Bunny, and Sintel.
The Blender Foundation uses these projects to make Blender better more capable and featureful. Thanks in large part to the Open Movies, Blender has become not only one of the best free and open source apps for artists, but is easily on par with the other computer animation tools available for any price.
This is part of why I'm very glad I sponsored Sintel, and why I'm sponsoring them again. Let's support Project Mango. If you can become a sponsor or just spread the word, please do, and quickly!

How to write good

Avoid alliteration. Always.
Prepositions are not words to end sentences with.
Avoid cliches like the plague. (They're old hat.)
Employ the vernacular.
Eschew ampersands & abbreviations, etc.
Parenthetical remarks (however relevant) are unnecessary.
It is wrong to ever split an infinitive.
Contractions aren't necessary.
Foreign words and phrases are not apropos.
One should never generalize.
Eliminate quotations. As Ralph Waldo Emerson once said: "I hate quotations. Tell me what you know."
Comparisons are as bad as cliches.
Don't be redundant; don't more use words than necessary; it's highly superfluous.
Profanity sucks.
Be more or less specific.
Understatement is always best.
Exaggeration is a billion times worse than understatement.
One-word sentences? Eliminate.
Analogies in writing are like feathers on a snake.
The passive voice is to be avoided.
Go around the barn at high noon to avoid colloquialisms.
Even if a mixed metaphor sings, it should be derailed.
Who needs rhetorical questions?
