I should really second the motion. There are a so many people in the OS
world (especially Ubuntu, of course) who are busying themselves making
other people's lives better. I do a fair amount of volunteer email
counselling so I know how rare it is to get any thanks in this kind of
work. But all the tireless hours - not to mention repetitive stress
injuries etc. - are deeply appreciated.
It's having a very big impact on the world and making the Internet a far
better place to live.
