They seem to have made me an honorary fellow, although in truth a little bit of this really belongs to everyone who I've worked with on patches, reporting bugs and making Linux great. Thats a lot of people!

(Fortunately all photos of me in the cap & gown have been suppressed so far !)

I still like the days where I downloaded kernel sources and patched them with your usb patches.

Congratulations! Free degrees are awesome, almost as awesome as free software!
+Mark Einon :) but jokes apart ...Alan is kind of person everyone involved in Linux  want to be like that...I meant to say the knowledge he holds..probably only Andrew Morton match with him..they both true alrounder and knows almost everything ..yep everything about linux kernel and their works reflect that.An inspiration to every other people in linux he greatly deserve that...may be more then that...I know you know all this..every one knows this..but still a reminder...he is a man to look for when the real crisis come...

This all said with my little understanding of him..not personally..correct me ...
