Did you like Npgsql? Send us a postcard!

Hi all!

Some time ago, a friend of mine, Horita, told me about a project whose owner asked people who liked his software to send him a postcard. I liked the idea and yesterday, while cooking the 2.0.2 release with Josh Cooley, I told him about this idea and he also liked it.

So, if you like Npgsql you can send us a postcard. Here are the addresses:


Josh Cooley
102 Boston Harbour Way
Madison, AL 35758

Francisco Figueiredo Jr.
QMSW 05 Lote 02 Bloco C Apto 116
Sudoeste - Brasilia - DF - Brazil
Zip Code: 70680-500

Thank you very much!
