Hey, former Chesapeake Conservation Corps fellow here. I had heard that there was a lot of sediment behind the Conowingo Dam back in the early 2010s.

So does that mean you like emacs? That is a remarkable journey, especially starting from punch cards all the way through network security. What was it like phishing staff? I've heard it's a lot easier to fall for than most people predict.
That makes sense about the uncertainty, knowing what you have time for, and how you'll feel. I hope you have plenty more 'feeling fine' days to come.
That is a lot to transfer. I am looking forward to the videos, and from Day 0 appreciated how you and Livia were both involved, friendly, and knowledgeable.
Either way you slice that number, it's pretty cool and it's only going to grow. Thank you!

Hey, you're right about the format of this course being something completely new. The "deletes after 4 days" was the hook I needed to dive in after years of passing up free linux courses. And the interaction with other classmates via reddit is honestly brilliant. Thank you so much for making this.
Whoo, this is a heavy topic. Reading these other comments, what stands out is how open you've been about it, and that is something.
How did you get into computers and linux in general?
What has helped you the most, in processing that you have a terminal illness? And what have been the 'least helpful' parts of it, if that's even possible to ask.
I don't think I've encountered before the transfer of a project from one person to another because of a terminal illness. Especially not someone you've never met before. How do you begin doing that? How does it feel to pass on the responsibilities?
One 'fun' one: do you have a number, or an estimate for how many people you've taught so far?
Thanks, and cheers.
