  -Summary: Lots of documentation, modules, mod_perl 2. Co-authoring Practical mod_perl.
  +Summary: Documentation, modules, mod_perl 2.0, book, articles
  -Stas's work on the mod_perl Guide (now integrated into the
  -documentation) gave birth to a <i>great</i> piece of documentation,
  -recommended to all aspiring mod_perl programmers.  He has also
  -contributed a great deal to the mod_perl documentation and was the
  -project leader for the creation of this site.
  +Stas has started contributing to mod_perl in 1998 by creating the mini
  +mod_perl guide, simply to reduce the rate of broken record questions
  +on the mod_perl list. After a few years, some people still referred to
  +the guide as mini, while it contained more than 600 pages at that
  +time. As of today more than 200 users and developers helped Stas to
  +write, review, improve and polish the guide.
  -On the coding side, Stas has written the
  -<code>Apache::VMonitor</code>, <code>Apache::GTopLimit</code> and
  -<code>Apache::Watchdog::RunAway</code> modules. He has contributed a
  -great deal of work to mod_perl 1.x, and is now also working on
  -mod_perl 2, most notably the <code>ModPerl::Registry</code> family.
  +While not working on the documentation, at the remaining spare time,
  +Stas has written a few Apache modules available from <a
  +CPAN directory</a> and did some work on mod_perl 1.0 series.
  +In autumn 2001 <a href="">Ticket Master</a>
  +has kindly sponsored Stas for one year to help with mod_perl. Stas
  +used this time to help with the development of mod_perl 2.0, to lead
  +the creation of the new site, to advocate mod_perl via
  +articles in popular online zines and conferences, to help with the
  +mod_perl list and as usual to write a lot of documentation, mainly for
  +mod_perl 2.0.
   He is also co-authoring <a href="">Practical
  -mod_perl</a> with Eric Cholet, to be published soon by O'Reilly.
  +mod_perl</a> with Eric Cholet, to be published soon by O'Reilly and
  +And of course, since 1998, when Stas discovered for himself mod_perl,
  +he was finding ways to use it at work, even while doing x86 hardware
  +development and verification at Intel. He is now thinking about
  +mod_perl 3.0's architecture, hopefully to be implemented solely with
  +AND and OR gates, driven by the Perl 6.0 chipset for the best
  +performance. Don't be surprised when you get offered a shiny Bluetooth
  +mod_perl 3.0 PCI card when you shop for your new server machine.
