A long and interesting account from Henning on his time spent in Canada, traveling, hacking and more. A worthwhile read!

      Yes agree :-)

      I wonder how I missed this in misc@

      Thanks a lot Henning for all your accounts on things happening.
      I enjoy a lot reading them and moreover it helps satisfy my curiosity with out asking questions and upsetting Theo in misc@ hahaha!!!

      I saw the coverage of hackathon on TV. Nice to see the setup :-)

      Good luck ahead

      warm regards

    I absolutely love these kind of posts. Even though I don't want the OpenBSD guys to detail their personal lives, I'm always eager to read about how they are spending their time. What I certainly enjoy the most is that the core group of programmers dedicated on OpenBSD have an excellent relationship with each other. Of course other projects/companies/whatever will have the same things organized/happening but yet I think it's kind of different. If I read these messages, you feel that there's a true friendship with mutual interests aside from the OpenBSD project. I know I know, it's kind of wussy to write this down but it simply gives me a very good feeling to know that the OpenBSD project is continuing on a rapid base with excellent security, features and code quality, combined with an excellent team spirit and who know how to spend their time well together. This is a rare thing in the UNIX world of today. (I don't know whether other projects have a similar way of spending time but frankly, I couldn't care less.)

      oh please, id rather have the developers genereraly happy and content. since i have a funny felling that will produce overall better code. than having them locked to their computers 18 hours a day, asmuch as i like to think otherwise, theyr just human.

      or in other words; all work and no play makes jack a dull boy.

        i think henning now understands the great appeal of living and coding in the land of the maple leaf:) it sounds as though hacking, hiking and grand, sublime views (both of nature and coded c) were shared by almost all of the development team. glad to hear of their joy; i am sure this will make OpenBSD all the better for schmucks like me.
