> > The same applies to IRC, too much time spent in helping others (I was
> > also HelpOp in #irchelp) forced me to away even from IRC.
> > My job coincided with my favorite hobby so, apart my personal projects
> > (see GitHub) I love reading heavy books (technical, development,
> > sysadmin, networking but also theater or classic novels) and watching
> > films when the TV is not owned by my gf.
> > Thank you for reading up to here.
> > Best regards
> > Fabio Castelli / Muflone
> I'm confirming my sponsorship. I think that Fabio has great experience,
> and has excellent packages in AUR.
> A discussion period of 5 days has been started now.
