FreeBSD Foundation Announces Generous Donation and Fundraising Milestone

The FreeBSD Foundation is pleased to announce it has received a $1,000,000 donation from Jan Koum, CEO and Co-Founder of WhatsApp. This marks the largest single donation to the Foundation since its inception almost 15 years ago, and serves as another example of someone using FreeBSD to great success and then giving back to the community. Find out more about Jan’s reasons for donating here.

 

Update: The following contains the full text from Jan’s Facebook post on 11/17/2014:

Last week, I donated one million dollars to the FreeBSD Foundation, which supports the open source operating system that has helped millions of programmers pursue their passions and bring their ideas to life.
I’m actually one of those people. I started using FreeBSD in the late 90s, when I didn’t have much money and was living in government housing. In a way, FreeBSD helped lift me out of poverty – one of the main reasons I got a job at Yahoo! is because they were using FreeBSD, and it was my operating system of choice. Years later, when Brian and I set out to build WhatsApp, we used FreeBSD to keep our servers running. We still do.
I’m announcing this donation to shine a light on the good work being done by the FreeBSD Foundation, with the hope that others will also help move this project forward. We’ll all benefit if FreeBSD can continue to give people the same opportunity it gave me – if it can lift more immigrant kids out of poverty, and help more startups build something successful, and even transformative.

Because Neuschwanstein castle is to mainstream we’ve visited Hohenzollern Castle and Lichtenstein Castle. Basically when you hear somebody who is going to visit a castle in Germany it is going to be Neuschwanstein, it is boring. On the other hand Hohenzollern and Lichtenstein castles are much older and those walls has seen more history. I can tell that the sight of them is amazing. The fact that they are less then one hour away from each other helps you to visit both of them on the same day. Here are some pictures, enjoy.

To me Stuttgart definitely seems to be the industry capital of Germany. Arriving with a train a huge Mercedes sign welcomes you, then the map of transportation, every direction is so obvious. You can tell that it has been made with very precise engineering. In case you’re not sure about this after having a walk in the city I invite you to take a look at the Mercedes and Porsche museums.

Here comes my pictures from the car museum and some of the city. Enjoy.

 

 

Took me a moment to find out how to redirect a URL if the URL contains a certain word, in Nginx, here it is:

location ~ \.xml$ {
rewrite ^(.*)$ http://urltoberedirected.com/$1;
proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
proxy_set_header Host $host;
proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
proxy_pass http://urltoberedirected.com/$1;
}

This one is going to redirect each URL which ends with .xml to urltoberedirected.com
