    WebOS-Internals

    WEB-A-THON 'o Love - 2012




    Final Total: $12,202.20




    YOU'RE THE BEST !!!




    I believe we all agree: It's been a bumpy ride! But through it all, there has been one group that has kept hope alive for lovers of webOS. One group that has kept us believing in the future (however fuzzy) of this great platform. One group that has donated their time, hearts, and passion to give to this community. Of course, that dedicated group is the one and only - WebOS Internals.

    WebOS Internals has done so much to make our TouchPads and phones fast and functional. They are the geniuses behind Preware, Uberkernel, Tweaks and many of our favorite homebrew projects. Not everyone realizes that they do this on their own time, along with day jobs and family. Not only donating their time, but they have built an architecture with Preware that is secure and scalable enough to host/deliver stuff created by the rest of the homebrewers and theme builders.

    Now with the upcoming release of Open webOS and webOS CE, combined with development costs, hosting those servers and buying phones and tablets dedicated to development isn’t cheap. They truly need and appreciate the support and donations of the users who benefit from their amazing efforts.

    You often see posts asking:“Will Open webOS ever work with current phones or the TouchPad?”, or “How do I install <insert app or kernal name here>?”, or “How long will we have to wait to be able to get webOS on other devices??”. YOU can make a big difference in the answers! The WebOS Internals team needs to buy hardware for this effort.

    The sooner they have resources, the faster they can bring all of the wonderful webOS-Internals magic to the current HP hardware, and move forward on developing for future hardware for everyone to enjoy!

    WebOS Nation’s members have launched a “telethon (webathon)” for the next few weeks to raise the estimated $10,000 needed to purchase necessary hardware for development and to continue to support the needed infrastructure. NO DONATION IS TOO SMALL. We need a bunch of $5 and $10 donations - and we need some benefactors to kick in bigger chunks. And please don’t think that even $1.00 donations aren’t appreciated or don’t add up fast!

    Many members keep asking how they can obtain or keep a coveted HB Supporter badge. Here’s how

    1. Please donate through the PayPal link below
    2. Please post your donation in this thread if you don't mind. It's the only way we can count it in the running total.
    3. Any members donating over $30 total will receive the HB Supporter badge!


    INFORMATION:
    NOTE: ALL supporter badges will be given out after the event ends. It will take us some time to get them in place - so please be patient.

    Supporter Badges:
    Donations over $30 =
    Donations over $75 =

    (I will be keeping a running total, and a running list of donors in the second post for all to view..)

    This webOS community is legendary for how we come together to support webOS. Think of the “votes” we always win. Or the way members jump in to help each other with technical questions. Last time we had a “webathon” we raised OVER $16,000 for these guys! The support from webOS Nation's members has been amazing - lets show them again just how much we appreciate their efforts!!


    A note to our members from Rod Whitby, WebOS-Internals:

    WebOS Internals (and the WebOS Ports team which is part of WebOS Internals) depends upon the generosity of the community for funding the development, operation and maintenance of the webOS Community Edition, future porting of Open webOS to other devices, the Preware homebrew ecosystem and the many homebrew packages developed by our team.

    Donations to WebOS Internals are used to pay for server hardware, replacement server parts, domain and hosting costs (OSUOSL helps a great deal with that), and other project expenses.

    The main project expense is devices for our core developers to use for development and testing of the webOS Community Edition, devices for future Open webOS ports, and the WebOS Internals applications, patches and kernels that you see in Preware.

    Thanks to all that have donated so far. We hope that this donation drive lives up to the expectations set by the previous events!

    -- Rod

    So, with Open webOS just around the corner, and our hopes and dreams certainly NOT resting on HP... we put out the call to the incredible members of webOS Nation to once again step up and show WebOS Internals how much we not only appreciate all they have done for us in the past, but how excited we are to see what they can accomplish for us in the future!


    OK... OK... I hear you yelling "Shut up and tell us how to donate already!!"


    No WAIT! Put that checkbook away there's MORE!

    There is a rumor floating around that WebOS Internals may have some well-used second-hand Unicorn development hardware that they might be putting up for member with the largest donation total (multiple donations OK). We'll have more details and confirmation to follow at a later time. But for now... keep it under your hat! Sshhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

    UPDATE: Rod has unveiled the special prizes to be given to the highest donors! You can see the info in THIS POST (#141)



    Let's show them how much we love 'em!!

    HelloNNNewman approached us a while ago about this, and I asked him to hold off until we had something publicly released to show for all the effort that has gone into the WebOS Community Edition over the past months. We always prefer that people donate in response to tangible items they can use today, rather than for intangible promises about the future that may or may not be possible to achieve.

    Now that LunaCE (formerly known as UberLunah) is in the alpha testing feeds, I've given him the nod to go ahead.

    Thanks for officially running it again HelloNNNewman!

    While I really love my Pre 3 and TouchPad, I know that 2 years for devices to stay current with the ever changing landscape of mobile technology is really pushing it and since HP will no longer be making any new hardware, it makes sense to support webOS Internals so we can still enjoy webOS on future devices.

    Happy to donate $75 to a good cause 1WH63357W72748238

    It's good to know that there is webOS-Internals we can rely on!
    I just sent 15$ your way.

    I have donated before.
    I bought the Preware documentation for my Touchpad as well as for my Pre3
    I just donated 30$ again.
    Best money spent.

    If anyone in the WebOS Community are true heroes, it is the WebOS Internals crew.
    Go for it, guys!

    Thanks guys for more webOS love and I'm looking forward to LunaCE in the short term. Great stuff!

    Thanks webOS-internals for all the hours you spent on this. Hope it all inspires HP to do more with webOS.
