Heh, you don't know half of half of half of half ;-). But thanks for the 
comment and the sweet words.

Haha, no the irony is exactly in reverse. The irony is that Ralph (and 
others) think I am wasting his time, while from my perspective and the 
actual truth of what I do, I would not be doing it if it was a time 
waster. I generally don't run into "doing a lot of stuff for no reason 
just because I don't take the time to stop and stare" these days.

Just because someone doesn't see the value of what I do doesn't mean it 
is not there. If that was the case I could stop doing everything I've 
ever done, because mostly other people, whomever they are, generally 
don't agree with my endeavours -- whether it is a father who wants me to 
have a 'real' job or an OSS person who thinks his time is better spent 
burgeoning on in the same direction without ever stopping to see if it 
is still the right direction to go.

Most people in OSS (of FOSS) I would say, are /stuck in a MOVEMENT/.
