Subject Re: [PROPOSAL] CeltiXfire Project
Date Thu, 22 Jun 2006 15:10:50 GMT
Hani is a good guy.  He really understands technology, he's honest, he's
open and he has a utterly wicked and warped sense of humor.

I count him as a friend of mine, and I certainly have no problem with
him becoming a committer for CeltixFire.

BileBlog is satire with almost always a grain of truth.  He just pushes
the point far beyond sanity, and that's what makes it such a fun read.

I see no downside, and the upside is that he started to understand what
we're really about.

Sincerely

Geir "Asshat" Magnusson
