"Kevin Kofler" != "Kevin Funk" ...

!= "Kevin Ottens"

This remind me at work, we're 3 Chris within 3 meters of each other, in the
same team! Everytime someone comes around and say "hey Chris" loud enough,
3 heads turn around.... funny at first but it gets annoying with time...

Anyway I knew I was not talking to Kevin Ottens, glad to hear from you
Kevin O.! You've put a big smile on my face!
Back at the time when I worked with Kevin O (hope you don't mind) I was an
electronic engineer, saying stuff like "I love Gnome, Gnome is the only
way, you're all wrong".

And then I tried GTK... ;) I had to wash my hands for 3 hours! ;)

I'm glad to have opened up, strengthen my C++ and discovered Qt and KDE.
Although I love QtC, I still think that emacs is way superior... Lol!
Seriously, can you do VHDL with QtC? ;)

Things change, and I feel good.


Whatever you're smoking, I want some too ;-) !
