Tribute

There was this one FreeBSD guy, who went by the nick nephrozym.

He rewrote the whole soundcard support for FreeBSD and salvaged me and countless other music lovers who happened to use FreeBSD as the primary desktop OS.

And I just found out that he passed away last Wednesday.

Little did I know that he suffered from rare neurological diseases.

Or that he has been paralyzed from neck and below since he was a college kid.

Or that he couldn't even speak because of the tracheostomy tube that his diseases forced him to use.

Or that he could only move fingers so he can barely use a small on-screen keyboard.

Or that he nevertheless graduated college, and has been an active and major contributor to open-source projects like FreeBSD.

Cameron Grant, rest in peace.  You were one of my biggest FreeBSD heroes.

와하하, 너 졸라 멋지구나. / Wahaha, you're so fucking awesome.

알지?  난 분명히 너한테 기회를 줬어.  그런데도 불구하고 대화 자체를 단절해 버린 것도 너고, 그 기회를 차 버린 것도 너야.  난 분명히 할 만큼 했어.  너의 문제였던 거야.

그러니까 말야… 너한테 줬었던 그 기회를 이젠 다른 사람한테 줘 볼라 그러니까, 그 면에 있어서는 내 인생에서 좀 꺼져 주라.  좋게 말할 때 물러나, 응?  나 이젠 너한테 아무런 감정 못 느끼니까, 그거 믿고 설쳐대는 일은 삼가줬으면 좋겠어.

충고 하나 하지.  저 먹자니 싫고 남 주자니 아깝다는 그 심술, 버려라.  응?

My mom's cool like this

(orz = me, hwaja = mom)

hwaja says:
Son, bring me the first volume of Red Moon already
orz says:
Kekekeke you got addicted -,.-;;;
orz says:
Kekeke
hwaja says:
I haven't even got a sniff yet
orz says:
Keke
orz says:
I'll drop by tomorrow morning.  Red Moon and the (laser) printer is ready;
hwaja says:
Why would I start if I don't have the first volume
hwaja says:
Okay.  BTW don't you have work tomorrow?
orz says:
I do.  I'm gonna drop by on the way to work.
hwaja says:
Okay
orz says:
I'm living a morning-oriented life these days;
orz says:
(Waking up automatically at 6 o'clock every morning -,.- very fascinating -,.-)
hwaja says:
You're like that again?  Good son
orz says:
(Think I'm losing sleep 'cause I'm past thirty1 now =3=333)
hwaja says:
Then go sleep.  I'm off to the movies for Phantom of Opera
orz says:
Yup
hwaja says:
What, are you saying that 'cause you think you're old
orz says:
Kekeke I'm joking of course (*runs away* =3=33)
hwaja says:
Bye
orz says:
Buhbye

A couple of points:

  • She uses MSN Messenger to chat with me, my sister, my cousins and so on.

  • The Red Moon that she's talking about -- it's a manhwa (Korean comic book) series.  My sis borrowed the entire set from me (minus the first volume which she had already read), then her husband dropped the set at my mom's place so I can pick it up.

  • She turned 60(!) last year.

I love my mom.  ^^
