Missing Cosmogotchi

So, the sabdfl doesn’t have a hackergotchi on Planet Ubuntu. This is a travesty, and we’re going to need the community’s might to fix it. Indeed, we should create a collection of sabdfl hackergotchis for every occasion. So, find a good shot of Mark – there are plenty around – make it into a sweet, sweet hackergotchi (like the ones in the Planet GNOME hackergotchi collection), and post your cosmogotchis in the comments of this post.

(This is the first time I’ve turned on comments for a post, so this is a bit of a trial run for whether I turn them on indefinitely…)

  1. This one is obviously the best candidate. (There’s another really good astronaut one which unfortunately has the top inch of his head cropped off.)

    Must be nice to be famous; you can get other people to make hackergotchis for you…

    (Says the guy who made a Paul Graham hackergotchi and a DHH hackergotchi yesterday.)

    Both are quick and dirty gimping. If you like one of them, I can try to make it cleaner and better.

    I’m just here to heckle, not to contribute: I like Ploum’s ‘gotchi, two comments above.

    Waha !

    I must post this screenshot. It’s where the randmoness of nautilus putted my hackergotchis on my desktop :

    I feel this so poetic…

    This is the most recent photo I could find. It was taken at LCA06.
    Not bad for my first hackergotchi.


  10. MotherLUG says:

    Second attempt and a correction. The first one was not from LCA06, but this one definately is.

    I really like cosmogotchi1b.png, although it reminds me always that i might not go to space in my lifetime with my current work ๐Ÿ™‚

    I made two possible hackergotchies for Mark.

    Folks from space deserve preferential treatment for an upside down cosmogotchi. ๐Ÿ˜€
