Ugh, it would seem I need to lie off the dry/self-deprecating humour
as it seems to get lost on email. My apologies to Mr Jensen and others
who took it as me insulting him (or the mentally ill). I really meant
it as something else.

I am an employee of Red Hat, and have been called insane by many
people who said "Why the samhills would you go back there? Did the
medications wear off?" or various other things. So to me it was funny,
however without a :) or similar thing it is lost.

Again my apologies for this and other slights.
