Are you an avid user of FreeBSD ? Perhaps you use FreeBSD more than even good ol Linux. Well, here is a golden chance to support your favorite operating system.
Book publisher No Starch Press of San Francisco, California will auction the first copy of the second edition of "Absolute FreeBSD" to the highest bidder with all the proceeds being donated to The FreeBSD Foundation which is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to supporting the FreeBSD Project.
If you are the highest bidder, then you will receive a signed copy of "Absolute FreeBSD" hot off the press and a Certificate of Authenticity. The ongoing auction at eBay runs through November 2, 2007. The latest bid as of this writing is $525. Now the big question is are you willing to up the ante and in the process contribute more to the FreeBSD foundation ? If you are interested, hurry because the auction closes on November 2 2007.
