      [ ] Debian developer, or otherwise involved in contributing to Debian

 - Q: Could you please provide one or two typical episodes (whatever you feel
      like) of your life with Debian?

 - Q: Could you please provide one or two fantasy episodes of your life with
      Debian, if you were to make a movie or a comic strip about yourself as a
      Debian protagonist?
   A: I'm a bit old for that, my rabble-rousing days are long past, but I am trying to teach my grandchildren about controlling their computers, and not letting M$ control them.

   A: Updating a working system, and knowing there will be no problems.
