You were the only one who mentionned explicitely that you were able to
go to conferences "due to your new job" (which is very honnest from you
IMHO) and I asked myself : how can you be at the conference for Debian
while your are payed by HP for being there.
I know that having many "jobs" makes it hard not to confuse them, and
since I never met you, I was wondering how you were doing. Of course,
other candidates can express their point of view on the subject wrt
their own "real life" job(s).

Thank you for your very clear answer.
