Dear Inmates,

our beloved lord mad scientist is celebrating quite a number of revelations
around the sun later this month.

He has affected many lives in this time, and I think we should collect a number
of stories, images, videos about how he touched ours to show him we appreciate him!

We have a tight deadline (2 weekish from now), and Malin is collaging the stories
into... well something.

I'm composing a piece right now how an off hand compliment of his has been guiding
me most of my adult life, american sap story right there.

So let's get to work,

17 years ago, I attended a wedding in Atlanta, and, with the boldness of youth, hit up DocOzone to see if I could extend my stay in the US and visit him for a couple of weeks.

At that time, he was already somewhat reclusive in posting to the online forum for web designers he had started a few years earlier, posting only a few times a year, but to my surprise, he said yes!
Might have had something to do with my (ultimately successful) attempt to rewrite the software for said forum from scratch, or it might have been his ingrained mid western hospitality,
but of I went to rent a ridiculous convertible in California - my grandma was about to go insane. I was meeting a man I met on the Internet on the other side of the world! How could I? I might get eaten by wolves! Well, not literal wolves - unlike her who had spent time in the finish tundra watching saunas burn down in drunk shenanigans - but still, strangers!

Pish posh, the biggest danger I faced on the whole trip where the dress shoes I wore on the flight trying to amputate my feet, and Malin and Kevin were most gracious hosts. Even the two adorable little evil fur balls called Jpeg and Adobe tolerated me.

I had wonderful two weeks, sipping overpriced star bucks coffee, learning about their enthusiastic view of the world and accumulated wisdom ('consider buying into the google IPO' the Doc said... should have...) and just enjoying the sun (see afore mentioned ridiculous convertible).

But the big thing that has followed me ever since
was an off hand compliment Kevin made me.
He said, 'you are a remarkable 21 year old, for you are not flaky".

And from this I learned that the trick to gaining respect is to bang the rocks together guys, if you've said you'd bang the darn rocks together.

Thank you Kevin - for my life is richer knowing you.

I never knew anyone here very well or personally but it felt as if I did.
Looking back I think ozoneasylum gave me a place to escape to when I needed it. As trivial as it may seem now it was invaluable to me at the time.
This place has also helped me develop skills that I was just discovering I have and have fun with them.
I say place but I really mean the wonderful people and Doc must be a very special kind of person to attract the people who have been here.
So what I'd really like to say is: "Thank you, from the bottom of my heart!"
