This is a very incomplete list of credits regarding software,
tools, and people who have helped systhread and it's
Three media spots in particular have always showscased most (not
all) of the material here:
- LXer.com and its predecessor
LinuxToday (before LT was bought by Internet.com).
- Rootprompt.org used to
feed off of my site directly - not anymore for some reason.
- Slashdot twice but never the
main page - so not
In no particular order - people who have helped in one way or
- For their unending patience with me and my late night
- Scott Smith

- Gabor Z. Papp
- My best
net friend, Gabor and I have been working on
BSD, Linux and UNIX systems together since - well I don't remember.
Gabor runs his own consulting shop out of Budapest, Hungary and he
is the best in town.
- Tim Malis
- For giving great ideas to the site, encouraging it and helping
from time to time. Tim also has a credit to his name in the
NetBSD source tree for helping me
fix a libnet issue. Tim is the oldest friend and net friend I am in
- Brett Lymn
- He encouraged me, taught me and at times - drove me to hack the
kernel. I owe, quite literally all I know regarding BSD kernels
(and a smack of Linux too) to Brett.
- Christos Zoulas
- Who just plain taught me, in general. How to fix: utils, kernel
bugs, libraries, scripts, shells... well you get the idea.
- Steve Dickinson
- Superb perl hacker and *NIX addict, Steve and I worked together
and somehow became great friends. We still work together from time
to time as well as swill beer. Steve also created the neat little
favico decorating your favico supporting web browser.
- aka Gleicon da Silveira Moraes, a great guy and one of the
fastest thinking C hackers I know. Have a C question? Ask
- Hubert Feyrer
- The man, the myth, the legend. Another all hats hacker, Hubert
was the one who invited me to join the NetBSD Foundation and
told me to continue to do my own things (such as systhread).
- Jack Jennings
- An old navy pal, Jack has contributed content to this site and
helped steer the general direction in the early days.
- Dave Whitinger and friends
- Dave, Paul Ferris and Marty Pitts started LinuxToday, a good
site in the late 90s and then faded away . . . only to resurface.
In any case, I owe Dave and Paul because LinuxToday aired my work,
which got me a lot of paid gigs.
- Terry Sullivan
- The authorative web designer. I don't care what anyone else
- Carsten Haitzler
- A C guru, Carsten taught me that there is more to life than
- Jeff Rowan
- Jeff Rowan was my UNIX mentor. He also wrote an article for
this site that as of this writing, I am still trying to
The list of software ... oi. Well, at least where systhread is
- nvi and vim. Best two editors, ever ... nuff said.
- apache (of course)
- FreeBSD, Linux kernel and NetBSD.
- ispell . . .
- the GiMP
- scrot for those great screenshots
- e17 Libs for thumbnailing.
Believe it or not, thats it. That is all I use to run this site
(well so far).
Of course, I use a multitude of other software for coding and
- gcc collection
- bash, csh and sh-posix
- The SDL Collection.
- Anything at Linux
Games I can get to run.
