So long and thanks for all the fish, Sam. Best of luck in the future (you won't need it, you've got talent and passion).

BTW, I think you're about to hit the front page of Slashdot. Now might be a good time to make sure your backup server is working :)

Channy Yun

Sam, it's very surprising news for me. You made a great job in Microsoft for open source. Good luck in your new challenge! See you again.

Matthew Case

Yep, it's on Slashdot and the haters are out in full force. Either way, I personally wish you the best and thank you for your years of hard work, regardless of how the vitriolic comments on Slashdot read.

Sam Ramji

Scott, Channy, and Matthew - thank you very much!

Tim Guleri

Good luck and thanks for guiding us through and around MSFT
Look forward to staying in touch

When we win it's with small things,
and the triumph itself makes us small.
What is extraordinary and eternal
does not want to be bent by us.
I mean the Angel who appeared
to the wrestlers of the Old Testament:
when the wrestler's sinews
grew long like metal strings,
he felt them under his fingers
like chords of deep music.

Whoever was beaten by this Angel
(who often simply declined the fight)
went away proud and strengthened
and great from that harsh hand,
that kneaded him as if to change his shape.
Winning does not tempt that man.
This is how he grows: by being defeated, decisively,
by constantly greater beings.
