There's the Richard we all know and love!
That was just my way of saying I missed you!

I'm happy to hear you're doing well. Thanks for the update.

I'll be on the lookout for netserva.

| Dave thanks for the support - appreciated - talk is cheap - one
| thing I've learnt and thats just the remit of the community - there
| always will be someone who takes a shot. Luckily I'm big enough and
| ugly enough to eat most for breakfast without breaking into a
| sweat.
| Thanks but the reason I'm quiet people is I spend my life now
| working with the suits (but I still rebel from the inside). I am
| pretty maxed out working on the security needs of a few million of
| my employers customers which sharpens and continually hones the
| awareness radar. I still am involved in the community pushing
| projects and also working with vendors on GPL'ing technology which
| then funnily enough benefits you guys.... funny that.
| There is a reason why I recommend, sponsor and help promote M0n0 -
| in fact there are 3
| 1) Lawrence and I started the first drive towards webdriven
| "appliances" built from GPL/BSD licenced code and thats started a
| wealth of cool stuff, M0n0 deservedly - if it continues to grasp
| features - should some point in the summer of 2005 grab SW's crown.
| For the record I put at least a years salary which I never got back
| into SW GPL and it was the gutsiest and best thing I ever did -
| look at the good it did.
| 2) The author of M0n0 just happens to be an inspirational guy who
| one day will realise he has an ability to make changes in the way
| people adopt technology and make "change acceptance" simple.
| 3) Because I am committed to funding OpenSource and BSD projects -
| which is why I sponsor to the tune of several thousand dollars a
| quarter out my pocket at least eight projects out there in the
| community.
| Regardless of comments (which are cheap by the way) I am proud of
| having 6m+ firewalls out there with my name on it. It's certainly
| nice when people say hi in the street and want to talk
| Linux/OpenSource. It's given me a good living, a comfortable
| retirement and the ability to help direct, focus and hone the use
| of alternative technologies.
| Read more about M0n0 in an upcoming article in the UK's Computer
| Shopper magazine this month. Due out in next few weeks. I'm also
| working on new distro - netserva - can't say any more just that it
| makes SW look crap.
