me, 2.0: jose nazario
beauty and the street
meijer flowers (8)
what i think is an orange tree at the meijer gardens.
slashdot posted my review of Aggressive Network Self-Defense. in a nutshell, i'm
still opposed to the idea, substantially. read my review for some
about a year ago brandon and i saw our book on openbsd, secure architectures with openbsd, published.
the culmination of a few years of work that brandon started, we were
proud. this was a few days afer jim and i announced we're
done, and we quit doing the openbsd journal. theo was livid
because we didn't bother to clarify it anymore, despite jim's
really clear post (which i also approved and agreed with). we were simply
tired, doing something like that every day is a very draining place to be.
you have theo bitching you out from time to time, and you have readers
who complain, and no one seems happy. ever. theo was pissed and killed
my openbsd commit access.
well, this past year has been nice, i'm more or less openbsd free. i still
use it, but i don't deal with the project any more. its been stress free,
no more random hate mail from theo, and no more worries about stuff. while
i like that theo doesn't believe in "a for effort", his approach of
pissing on people who actually do support his efforts got to me. the joke
was on him, anyhow, i was gonna quit right about then. i simply lacked the
time and energy to devote to the project.
so what's this mean? go do everyone a favor and write a nice note to someone
who wrote some free software or who maintains a website resource you
count on, be it larkware, slashdot, joel on software, or whatever. thank
them, because it's all too often a thankless job. in fact, thank someone
once a week for their work. they deserve it.
