Being thanked gives me the warm fuzzies

So I just got this email and I thought I would share it verbatim:

I just wanted to thank you for such a great piece of software (dhcpcd)…

I often forget the people that make all this cool stuff that make linux. bsd and all the other unixes work… so rather sending a bug report, I’d just though i’d send you a hello! and thanks for giving my machines ip addresses!!!!!

I was diagnosing a race condition between gnome network manager, wireless, wpa_supplicant and dhcpcd…

but that for further research… (your software is doing exactly what is should do). :-).



THIS is one of the main reasons I enjoy this hobby of mine …. random thoughts of happiness that come in from total strangers that appreciate that I made something for free that in turn made them happy :)
