Getting to Know: Owdy

By Bryan

1. What got you involved with SMF?
I was starting my first community back in 2001 (or was it 2002?) and i was looking good forum software. I found YabbSE, and journey began. It was natural to continue with SMF, so i have used it since first beta. First i was Finnish translator, then i asked Jeff to give us Finnish childboard at SM. First he and some team members were against it, but i didnt gave up, Jeff did. :D So, then i was Finnish moderator, later team looked new Support Specialist, i got choosed and later i was voted to be Lead Support with Ben. Oh, it was good times.

2. What feature of SMF do you like the most?
Unread messages

3. From what you see what do you feel SMF is missing?
New gold release.

4. How do you feel about the transition from LLC to NPO?
Its just awesome. I really hope it happend soon and all old ghosts left too.

5. Since you have left SMF what have you been up too?
Building up websites, running my communitys, taking care of people at work, whining at SM, growing up my family, getting my ass kicked at gym, ran couple of marathons etc.

Biggest open source project in my life currently is openSUSE linux, im sysop in finnish openSUSE team, webmaster at our site etc. I got my own internet related business (Osku Interactive), + i’m R.N at local E.R, so i got real job too.
