Wow.  I'm sad and excited and blown away by the graceful words in 
closing the m0n0wall project.

Back in 2006, anyone remember the 'm0n0wall and PFSense' NYC*BUG talk 
back when we were welcome guests at the soho apple store?  Wow a lot has 
changed since then :)  (For one thing, nearly every serious piece of 
commercial network gear has moved to http as the common form of 
appliance UI.)

My hat's off to Manuel Kasper for his work, approach, and broad impact 
to UNIX-based appliance projects.  Regardless of what folks feel about 
the fundamental tech, it's truly remarkable to see a *BSD project start, 
live, and end, so clean and honest.

A bit of nostalgia, I just powered on a small, forgotten m0n0wall / 
soekris box on my shelf, still ready to route the same small subnet it 
used to for me- though I stripped the wireless card from that box years 

Now, I grope to find my words as I grok the news of opnsense.org...
