some kind of weird to selfnominate...

What have I done so far?

I started with "Brainstorm" not even having a device. Trying to keep track,
getting things right and encourage people to participate in "Brainstorm".
Becoming a Mod on t.m.o. With Quim leaving off to meego I started getting 
more involved with other tmo sections and became supermod.

With getting my hands on my own device (n900) 2 years ago I gave extras-devel
and extras-testing a shot. Started to report bugs, help developers with dbus
requests and to help out users with bricked devices or moaning in any other
disciplin in #maemo (IRC-freenode). Altered some wiki entries as there were
warnings missing. (people followed links placed as for beginners fwded to
advanced stuff.)

I never became an official extras-testing tester but started testing anything
looking worth to be tested and reported back, sometimes directly to developers
who were/are in #maemo.

I came across nitdroid testing and even first stage meego-for-n900.

Somehow I got aware of alpha- and beta-stage testing of Nokia Ovi Suite looking
out for n900 owners to help testing, so I did.

As my reallife became more offline I reduced my tmo-time to close to 1h a month
while if online trying to clean up at least one page of mal threads.
I am still active on #maemo helping people getting everything from maemo devices
they need, even if it is just a clean boot again. 

I do not mind which device I'd get. More than pleased getting one at all.

Thank you for reading.
