As you may or may not know, WinterMute is the developer behind devkitPro - the home of libnds, libogc and many other libraries used in the great majority of homebrew we use on a daily basis. Without him, there's no telling how homebrew on our beloved devices would look like, and he continues to update the toolchain free-of-charge for all the avid programmers and homebrew lovers to enjoy. He's also the author of DSi Savegame Exploits without which flashcart-based DSi Mode homebrew would've never seen the light of day. Thing is, he's looking for employment.
WinterMute is disabled, diagnosed with Dysthymic Disorder - this automatically makes the task more difficult for him. For quite some time, he was wondering whether or not he could turn devkitPro into his dream job, and now it would seem that this dream is close to becoming a reality. The kit will always remain free - that much is certain, but with a little help from the community, WinterMute will be able to become self-employed and receive additional grants from the government.
If you wish to know more, follow this link and if possible, help the guy out by dropping a few coins into his ChipIn embedded into this post or available on the devkitPro's homepage - the goal isn't all that large, and a token of appreciation for all his hard work is more than well-deserved.
