There’s nothing more discouraging than having systems go down and not knowing why. I still don’t. I started creating commercial websites in late 1994 and yet I’m still left with the bad feeling that it’s all run by mysterious spirits. No wonder UNIX has daemons running all the time.
Tomorrow is Thanksgiving in the United States, my home, and we’ll be celebrating here in the Christian house with friends and family. In the midst of the worst financial collapse since my parents were born, there’s still a lot to be thankful for. Including you.
For the RO experts, I want to thank you for reading this site, for discussing these ideas when I just started learning about them, for being so inviting. It’s been grand and hopefully I’ve added something to the field. Thanks for everything you’ve done. The whole experience has been transformative.
For all the rest of us, thank you for taking the time to learn more about these ideas. Hopefully I’ve provided you value for your time, and you’ve come away with more than you came with, even if you totally disagree with me. Thanks for being part of this community here. The discussions have been grand.
Happy Thanksgiving to you all across the globe!
