opensource is good

Posted 12-06-2009 at 05:45 PM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])

it is always good to know someone is interested in your opensource product, someone is using it.
have this great feeling when viewing access logs on one of mine, which was first i created and published @ sf.net(was in april/may 2009, when sf.net had more eye-friendly design).
