 yes - that and being part of something bigger than they are.

 ... trouble with that is that both Wine and Samba are small
 parts of a much larger picture that not many people understand
 or appreciate.
 i've endeavoured to give you a glimpse of that picture.

 dear ge,

 it is not my intent to annoy.

 i spent nearly four years working on samba: it _was_ fun
 (up until 2000), and there was enough incentive in the work i
 was doing for security companies (ISS) and other interested
 parties (people who needed samba to be a PDC) to employ me
 to continue to research the area i was interested in.

 that time is now over: so i am therefore focussing on other
 areas where there may be interest in funding such development.

 i thank you for your time: when i have enough spare time and money
 or if someone comes forward to provide sponsorship i will provide
 you with all the patches in the world.
