This is a bit atypical for OMG! Ubuntu! but this morning Bryen Yuko Yunashko, also known as suseROCKS, reported that he was robbed for many valuable gadgets during his travels in Europe. As a user Bryan has dedicated much of his life to raising awareness of accessibility in technology, and this theft has robbed him not only of valuable data but of the tools he uses to increase his quality of life given his disability.

So Stephen Shaw has started a pledge campaign to cover his losses, and if any OMG! Ubuntu! readers need a good deed of the day, I urge you to consider pitching in.

As a fellow disabled Linux user I am and have been very grateful for Bryens continued work and send him my sympathies and thanks for all his hard work in what can only be a trying time.
