Nice interview! Actually learned some new things about SDF (been a member since June 2001). It's amazing Stephen has kept SDF going so long - and he sounds so young! ;)

I have been a member of SDF since early 2003. At a time when everything was going to web based mail SDF provided me with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 shell account I was looking for and has provided me with great and extremely cheap service ever since.

Thanks Stephen!

Been with SDF for a long time now and it's great to hear cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 story and history behind SDF. Hell I didn't even know what cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 SDF stood for. Great to hear Stephens words though always had great admiration for him and his love of UNIX and Severed Heads.

Hi Stephen

Thanks for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 great interview! And I don't think you are a boring storyteller (as you mentioned in your email). Nice to hear about cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 history of SDF and how you took on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 challenges. Keep it up!

So great to hear cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 history behind this amazing service! I actually just signed up last week due to my nostalgia for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 gopher system; I'm very much still in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 process of "learning cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 ropes" as it were. I especially appreciate Stephen's anti-establishment, anti-corporate idealism; it is that sort of attitude which I personally feel helps to fuel cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 "true spirit" of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Internet. Wonderful interview, and I'm so happy to be a part of this!

Why not just install Linux or NetBSD on your own computer?

What would I get out of joining this system? Wouldn't I learn more by "rolling my own" shell account at home?

I'm sure Stephen is a nice guy, but why would I want to trust him (or anyone cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re) to keep my files safe?

It might be a good way for newbies to get cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir feet wet before cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y graduate to setting up cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir own home system.

I like SDF because it's Lisp-friendly. They have a ready to use ISLISP (OpenLisp) and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y also run some stuff on Symbolics Genera (although I have no idea as to what).

Stephen Jones is a true hacker, a true system administrator!

An exciting bit of SDF history. I've been an sdf member since early 2001. Why couldn't I have joined up earlier? When will cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 "More from Stephen Jones" interview be out?

Jesus smj can talk. I hope it was cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 edit but cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 first reply went on for about 10 minutes. Also I imagined when smj spoke it would be like a voice from Olympus, instead he sounds like some UNIX sys-admin.

Still a great interview, at least for SDF users. I listened at a friends house when he had gone out, when most normal people would be looking at porn.

No mention of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 international facets of SDF though.

Cool interview, and for auditive people like me, nice to have a voice now in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 head when reading stuff from smj! (Even if English is not my native language.)
It's interesting to hear about cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 history - cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 only thing I'm regretting is that I haven't come to SDF earlier than 2004.
Definitely a cool place for trying things out, for getting into touch with a lot of interesting people (not to mention cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 knowledge and idea base), and to have a "base in cyberspace" where one feels at home. I'll continue to do advertisement for it, hoping that SDF will continue!

Stephen:

'Devon' said it for me: "I especially appreciate Stephen's anti-establishment, anti-corporate idealism; [...] attitude which I personally feel helps to fuel cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 "true spirit" of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Internet. Wonderful interview, and I'm so happy to be a part of this!

I'm also very pleased [more at: relieved] to note somebody else is a fan of "THX-1138"; when I've tried describing its seminal influence and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 filmmaking/literary excellence [also clearly anti-estab, anti-corp] I seem always to engender The 1000 Millimeter Stare.

N.B.: Not to evaluate anyone at your level of expertise, but [re. your almost palpable focus, thought organization, etc.] I notice you low-ball your [public] speaking skill set (in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 email announcement)! This is one absorbing interview from where I sit [now higher-up, straighter and taller-in-saddle after exp. to this information]. Thank you! --Wordy Wally --- 'lunarvol' admin@gobi-igloo.com

Hi! I'm hearing-impaired (deaf) so unfortunately I couldn't listen to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 interview. However, I am a member of SDF for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 past few years. One of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 commentors wanted to know why cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y should trust Stephen/SDF. Well, I felt very wary cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 first time I joined, but as time went by, SDF has gained my trust. Never had a single problem or felt suspicious. Free shell account and a lot of goodies, to boot - what more could you ask for! ;-)

Give SDF a try! If you don't like it for whatever reason, you could always leave. You've got not much to lose.

Great job, Stephen/SMJ and SDF! Keep it up. You've got a lot of loyal and satisfied SDF users backing you up.

Been a member of SDF since cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 mid 90's. There's not a better value out cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re. I have no worry about trust with Stephen. The number of times he has personally busted his *ss, spent his own funds, and wasted untold hours to keep that system running and ensure cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 safety of our files so that we can do what we do has convinced me of his integrity.

Thanks Stephen for all you do for us!!!

SMJ does a great job at SDF.

For those who've asked .. SDF is more cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n a shell account, it's a community of people who communicate with one anocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r via cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 various methods that SDF provides (BBS, WEB, Email, IRC, to name a few).

Its not corporate at all. Its simply a place for people who like computing.

@Anonymous I have installed free and paid operating systems on more computers and devices than I can remember. Yes, "rolling your own" is a satisfying learning opportunity if you have cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 skills, patience, money, space (resources) to make that happen. I would guess, however, that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 community cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y have isn't a part of your I-am-an-island approach.
