Hello everyone


This is Tony, the maker of ZiP: Zine in Progress 
<https://noisebridge.net/wiki/zine>, in another form. The one I'll be 
using from now on for most of my Noisebridge communications, since it's 
a secure, encrypted channel, just approved for our use by Riseup. So 
please....call me Glamortramp.....Glam for short.

There's been talk lately about people spamming the list and NB wiki with 
made-up accounts, so I just want to clarify that I have three identities 
- Tony, Glamortramp, and the WhimWiz (the Whimsical Wizard of ZiP) - not 
for criminal or spamming purposes, but for creative and artistic ones. 
Don't delete them, if you don't mind?

Also, I can afford $10/month if that's what it takes to continue to have 
access to NB. I've never had a key to the space, incidentally. And when 
I was recently evicted from my squat, I began spending considerably LESS 
time at NB, not more. I'm just sayin.....you know what kind of person I am.

The main reason I'm writing is because *we need to raise a little more 
money* in order to print enough copies of ZiP01 (issue one of ZiP) for 
the Zine Release Party @ NB next Tuesday. (You know about it 
<http://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2012/02/07/18706878.php>, right? Gavin 
mentioned it at the meeting last night, but I'm sure it got lost in all 
the shouting and controversy.) *We need about $250 to print a decent 
batch of copies, and we're about 1/3rd of the way there right now.*

If you wish to contribute, any amount is appreciated. I can collect from 
you in person (I'm coming to NB today - Thursday - will probably be 
there from later afternoon into the night - sometimes lately I seclude 
myself in the Church or Turing classrooms so as to avoid distractions & 
be able to work ), or you can PayPal it to Gavin - message me or him for 
the address.

Thanks so much, I hope some of you will be around next Tuesday to see 
the results of this labor of love which has nearly eaten my life for the 
past several months. Not even being thrown out of my house and losing 
*everything I own except my computer and toothbrush* stopped me from 
getting it done! So yeah, I'm a little proud of that.

Any correspondence relating to ZiP (submissions, letters to the editor, 
etc) can be sent either to this address or to *zipzine at riseup.net.*

A new friend of mine who is an entry-level hacker and stand-up comedian 
just brought me a *Chumby.* It's fucking adorable! It's like the Gizmo 
of computer-gadget Gremlins. I'm gonna hack the shit out of it. I think 
I'll join the Tiny Tux group so they can help me explore its 
potentialities? I'm very much entry-level myself with the tech/gadgetry 
stuff.
