I've been cheated

BSD 1

I'm sure everyone saw the recent article here on Slashdot about the FreeBSD Core Team election fraud. I was cheated of victory, despite the fact that I have done more to contribute to the *BSD codebase than many of the other people on the ballot. I suppose this is just what people have come to expect from a software team that can't even port their OS beyond 2 minor platforms, though...I'm sure everyone saw the recent article here on Slashdot about the FreeBSD Core Team election fraud.

Anyway, getting past the bitterness, I do feel more fulfilled as this weekend draws to a close. While I don't have a lot of time to take out of my busy schedule of securing OpenBSD and riding mountain bikes, I did find the time this weekend to go volunteer at the local homeless shelter, on the advice of my girlfriend. I've put a picture I took while there up here on the OpenBSD site to set an example, as I think that OpenBSD developers are morally obligated to give back to their community free of charge. Please join me in this crusade against poverty.

The trolls have already latched onto that picture.

:(

Nice to know the real story behind it though.
