Anybody remember that logo I made for Parabola and was put by Wikipedia as a work that don't qualify as a
protected work?

Guys, if the thing is about money and poisoning everything, well, I have good news: you can choice to not act
on the feeling of envy for the success of other developers that are very useful for the Parabola project and
its development, and that the community choose to employ full time. The Dragon sickness is something that you
can escape from.

That said, I'm skeptical too that we could get the enough donations to do such thing. But still, Parabola
wouldn't remain unknown forever.

Pax et bonum.
