Default Interview: Ask Theo de Raadt What You Will

From http://bsd.slashdot.org/story/14/03/...-what-you-will

Theo de Raadt was a founding member of NetBSD, and is the founder and leader of the OpenSSH and OpenBSD projects. He is currently working on OpenBSD 5.5 which would be the projects 35th release on CDROM. Even though he'd rather be hiking in the mountains or climbing rocks in his free time, Theo has agreed to answer any question you may have. As usual, ask as many as you'd like, but please, one question per post.
You don't need to be a genius to debug a pf.conf firewall ruleset, you just need the guts to run tcpdump

Not that I will be unblocking Slashdot anytime soon, but this is *exactly* the type of back to your roots interview they should be doing if they want to retain their "audience."

Damn, this slashdot thread just reminded me on why I never visit slashdot.

It is just full of kids commenting on Theo's mannerisms, though I doubt any of them actually know him through experience. This is embarrassing.

Frankly even if I asked a question on there it would just be drowned out by all the crap.

Perhaps we should have an "Ask Theo stuff" event on this forums? Also, disable new memberships while it is running so only people interested in BSD can actually contribute

Y'know, that might not be a bad idea for various other BSD figures as well.

Yeah, this is "I heard something on the internet once about Theo, so I'm going to continue to perpertuate it, although I have no direct knowledge or experience with said individual myself." Stupid.
