I can't write hello werld (see), but I give where I can. I "redesigned" the Openwall site a few years back, I try to contribute test files to the wiki, documentation ask or answer questions. It's nice to be part of something, even if it goes unnoticed/unseen. I feel good about the project and what I've given, and I feel I need to do more here and abroad in that manner. FOSS is why for me. -rich Content of type "text/html" skipped
