Comment: Re:Happy to let someone else test it (Score 1) 101

by dibos (#47436161) Attached to: First Release of LibreSSL Portable Is Available

So donate to the OpenBSD Foundation, and in your donation leave a note that you want LibreSSL to work on Windows. If enough people do that, guess what... it is pretty likely. Or find out who is on the porting team, and pay them DIRECTLY to put a little extra effort in to make it run on Windows. Put your money where your mouth is.

Comment: 5 of them for a virtual keyboard (Score 1) 65

Now, put one on each finger, and we can make virtual keyboards, and have all sorts of fun with the UI. 8 fingers.... 8 bits per byte... we could have each finger represent a bit, on or off. Then without moving the hands or stretching the fingers, each key on the keyboard is represented by which the fingers being lowered or not. Saves the thumbs, one for mouse positioning, the other for enabling mouse mode. In mouse mode, the rest of the fingers would do things like Ctrl-Alt-Shift-Super-Meta on one hand, and left click, right click, middle click on the other hand.

Comment: Appreciation for the VA Research IPO (Score 2) 48

by dibos (#46456699) Attached to: Interviews: Ask Larry Augustin What You Will

Larry, I just want to express my appreciation for the way you handled the IPO. I've never made much money from doing software. Your gift of VA shares to many open source developers paid off my student loans, got me out of debt, and there was enough left over to buy a bunch of O'Reilly books. Very classy. Hope you've done well in all your endeavors over the past years since then.

It is much easier to suggest solutions when you know nothing about the problem.
