IYCC is a company started by Linux guy Loye Young. Loye manufactured and sold his own brand of computer. It was a beauty...I am facing it right now as I type this. The crashing economy all but crushed this small business. Everything was in place to succeed when the whole thing hit the crapper for him. While he re-groups, he is doing the little things to try to recover until he is in position to tackle the big things.
We can help him by making his simple portal our home page. It is a simple google search portal with some shopping and unobtrusive ads. We ask that when you do any searches, take the time to use his page to do so and from time to time, click an ad there. If you should have the need to do business at Amazon, purchase computer accessories or buy music, Loye makes a pfenning or two from using his portal.
Loye is one of the Good Guys that got kicked in the teeth by the nasty US economy...many of us suffered. Loye has suffered on levels I don't want to go into...suffice it to say, he's lost more than anyone ever deserves to lose.
This isn't really "news" so it cannot be submitted to any of the Linux wires. Please pass it along to your friends if you would. We want to circulate it as much as possible.
Give Loye a hand by doing the simple things above. It's doing most things we do anyway in our day to day computing. If enough of us do it, it could make a difference.
