We normally do not put personal posts on this page, as they can be complicated matters and usually do not pertain to CyanogenMod news. That said, something is affecting us in a way it really hasn’t affected us before, and it’s hitting very close to home.

Within CyanogenMod, we have dozens of maintainers and hundreds of contributors; none of whom are paid employees. Yes, we get donations, but despite the jokes of yachts, helicopters, and private planes, it is really just enough to cover operating costs for servers and hosting. Occasionally, there is enough leftover in the team account to buy a device for a developer. What we are getting at here is that CyanogenMod is not rich.

There are, however, times where we wish that we were a full fledged company. It’d be nice if CM could pay for some full-time positions or help out team members when they are in need. Currently, we are experiencing a painful reminder of this limitation.

A member has had a pretty serious problem fall into his lap. +Ryan Scott (aka ChiefzReloaded), a device maintainer, has a rare infection known as Necrotizing Fasciitis. This infection is caused by bacteria that eats skin, fat, and other tissue; it is literally a flesh-eating disease. Ryan is going through the treatments that he needs to keep him alive, but unfortunately, that treatment quickly becomes very expensive to deal with, and it is no exception for Ryan. This disease has placed an incredible strain on him and his family, including his young children. The CyanogenMod team would love to be able to hand out a fistful of cash and help out as much as possible.

Love from the Community
Some members of our community have started a few initiates to benefit Ryan and his family. As we are unable to help out financially, we would like to lend our support for these community initiatives, and help spread the word.

+Polo Heysquierdo has started an Indiegogo page for Ryan at http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/scott-family-fund. This page has some more details on Ryan’s condition and a method for you to help the effort.

Additionally, a huge community favorite and someone who the CyanogenMod team loves, +Deth Becomes You has started an auction with proceeds aimed at helping out Ryan. https://plus.google.com/u/0/107290707477228775864/posts/BYfaDHZeJKt

And last, but not least, you can send donations and words of support to Ryan directly via paypal. chiefz.reloaded@gmail.com

We understand that not everyone can help, but even if you can’t, sending Ryan and his family some kind words and sharing this message will go equally as far.

Thank You,
The CyanogenMod Team

The advance of technology is amazing. Hopefully tablets will graduate to more substantial games in the future than the Angry Birds of the present.
 
A developer created a tool to make old Windows 95 and 98 games work on Android. He so far converted Caesar III, and made the game run on his Asus Transformer and Galaxy S.
I (Bogdan) would love to play some Starcraft on my GS2. What would you like?

Mmmmm, tasty cameras.
 
These are the last pictures you get before a lion eats your camera.

Wedding photographer Ed Hetherington traveled to Zimbabwe for a photo safari.

After shooting various animals all day, he noticed a lion take a break from the buffalo carcass she was eating to get a drink. So he placed a camera on the ground near the buffalo in order to get close-up shots via a wireless remote. 

Unfortunately, she came back and chewed on his camera, pretty much destroying it. These are among that camera's final shots.
