Oh I've given back many times over the years to several projects, but i'm
not a chest beater so dont feel the need to add them all to things like my
sig or advertise it, i've always been and will be, a "quiet achiever"

I do, what do you think im using now? :) what do you think I use on all
list/newsgroups under this account hehe. Of course I use Evolution and ff
in gnome a lot for work, afterall, some of these programmers dont
understand anything exits outside of GUI, and trying to use portals in
lynx is a pain, but its awesome loading pages if i'm away on laptop using
dialup, 150k pages load in 2 seconds ... some webmasters think its cool to
concentrate on "eye candy" rather than factual content or usability, one
day I hope they will wake up to reality.

I'm here now coz works very quiet this morning, enjoying a coffee, some
Pink Floyd, and ssh-to-home for your entertainment on usenet/mailing
lists, what more could I ask for :)
