🍺 Buy me a beer 🍺

I like beer and hacking on software - sometimes at the same time - and I’ll be sure to toast you and your generosity at the pub once a month.

🍸 Buy me a cocktail 🍸

Much nicer than just a pedestrian beer, this is a classy level of support. I’ll think of you and appreciate your generosity from behind a fine martini, manhattan or other drink that starts with the letter ‘m’.

🥃 Buy me a whisky 🥃

I can see that you’re a purveyor of the finer things in life. I’ll raise a glass to you monthly; whether it’s a fine rye, a carefully blended Irish or a single malt scotch, your support will help both the development of open source software and the relaxation from it. You’ll also get a shout-out on my website. Thanks for your support!
