Love your work Rusty…
You and a few others are those inspiring us in the “so-called” under-developed countries in this digital world.
Love the work on netfilter/iptables (just looked at it a bit, not gone through the code yet though)…;-)

Hello sir, I came to know about you through a research paper I was reading about Linux and it mentioned about your research work on hypervisor. I’m an MS-CS student currently in search of a research topic for my master’s thesis and future PhD dissertation. Through a search over on web, I found hypervisor topic to be very interesting. As your research is currently going on in this area can your tell me something more about it and possibly suggest a thesis title? I would be very greatfull to you. Looking forward for your assistance. Please mail me your valuable suggestion on the following email address –

Is it deliberate that I cannot comment on old posts?

I was wanting to comment on (“Lightning Networks Part I: Revocable Transactions”) requesting that you mention that using disposable private keys to get revocable transactions has been replaced by using disposable hash preimages instead, as described in for example.

It would be useful to include a note to that effect in your older post, because it had me confused for a while.

Hi Chris! Thanks, I’ll put a note in the post.

I ended up timing out comments simply because after a few weeks it’s been 100% spam. However, I’m easy to email :)
