The Alamo Beard Club is holding a beard contest on April 13th to benefit CASA (http://www.casa-satx.org). They do a lot of really good work, and we hope to raise a lot of money to help them do even more good.
I’ve seen a lot of great beards and staches around here, and I think it would be great to have a large contingent of Rackers competing.
Best groomed full Beard
Full Beard under 3”
Full Beard styled Mustache
Women’s Beard/ Mustache (Fake beards only; everyone can compete in the other categories.)
Full Beard over 3”

Years ago I was a RedHat (KRUD) systems and network administrator. My Linux legacy is having once erased an entire, not-backed-up external Macintish drive with “rm ./* -RF” because I forgot how “recursive” worked and I still do image editing with GIMP (though I use it on Win7 now).
I like to think that a BSD beard, camo pants, and Doc Martens is the OpenBSD Look, although this is obviously more of an IRIX photo…
This was taken a couple months ago, but is indicative of my current beard as I have since trimmed it and let it grow out to a little more than this length again.
I’m still hoping it gets more full as I grow it. I’ll be 26 the end of November and my longest mustache whiskers are just barely starting to touch the tops of my chin hair. I also hope the baldish spot in the middle of my chin fills in.
If you’re religious, please keep me in your prayers to the ghost of Dennis Ritchie that my beard may erupt into Unixy glory!
And if you’re interested, here’s what I use on my Thinkpad X220 Tablet. (Debian, Openbox)
Took several years to grow… Wife is still not happy as I refuse to declaw my beard.
Boys shave, men burn their fucking beards off.
In the sad event that one must part with his beard, this is the only acceptable method.
