We wish you well
Authored by: alset on Feb 22, '10 12:35:53PM

I used to look up info on how to use cron via this site from a CompUSA display iMac when my internet connection was down at home. I'd print instructions from a bondi Espon printer and go home to futz around with this crazy new under-the-hood CLI. When I interviewed for my first support job, one of my suggestions for troubleshooting a non-booting Mac was to check the loginwindow plist because I'd learned about it here. When I got into shell scripting, this was one of the many sources of information about how to manipulate the shell to give me exactly what I wanted.

Today, I work in an enviable position in software development, thanks largely to the wealth of knowledge gained here over the years. You are as much a part of my success in computing as anyone else who has taught me over the years (actually, more). I'll always be grateful and wish you much success!
