Vim has been nominated in the "First-Annual Slashdot Open Source Community
Awards", also known as the "Slashdot Beanie Awards". There is a total of
$100.000 prize cash, this is something!

You need to create an account for this, but that's easy and free.
Vim is in the category "Best Open Source Text Editor".
Voting closes January 31.
This is the first time Vim has been nominated for an award that actually has a
cash prize. In the event that Vim wins, I will pass on the money to ICCF
Holland, to help the orhpans in Uganda. More info: http://www.vim.org/iccf
(This is just to avoid having to organize a "Vimmy award" to split the prize
up and divide it over the many people that have helped make Vim a winner!)
The award ceremony (well, since they announced there will be plenty of food
and beer, it's more a party really) is on Thursday February 3 in New York city.

ARTHUR: So be it!

ARTHUR: Now stand aside, worthy adversary.
BLACK KNIGHT: 'Tis but a scratch.
