^ that kind of comedy is a rare treat.
I just want to say happy birthday to my best pal, Aq, who turns 33 today.
If my memory serves me right, I first met Aq when he was 24. We became good friends right away: I really enjoyed his cantankerous, opinionated and shouty personality. Many an evening we spend discussing every Open Source and wider social topic under the sun. Since then, he has become a brother to me. He has always been there as a friend, as a fierce debating companion (that many of you will have experienced on LugRadio, but he has also become someone who has always inspired me with his enthusiasm and his happy-go-lucky approach to life. I do miss you, my friend.
Unfortunately, I can’t be there to take you to the vodka bar and buy you a cheese and onion pasty, so you will have to settle with an evening with your daughter. Do send on my apologies to her.
