Wait, a Haiku developer lives in Indianapolis? When do you want your free beer? Moe & Johnny's, Pawn Shop, Mouse Trap, etc. South Broad Ripple ftw. You can redeem on most nights of the week. Seriously.

Yeah. I live and work in Indy. I've got a small contingent of people interested in Haiku, but they're all fence-sitters when it comes to cutting code.

I could go on about how folks who work for consulting firms generally don't enjoy their work, and so get burnt out very quickly, but I won't. Not here anyhow.

Between Indy and Columbus, OH there's a lot of interest.

As for the beer, I'd love to take you up on that. :-)

I used to live in Ohio too till about a year ago. Now I live in AZ where as far as I know, there are no Be users but myself. ;)

I'm hoping some of the fed up Amiga users will take interest in this as well.
