(from Matt Campbell)

Thanks all for the appreciation and memories. But I'm afraid that, at 
the risk of getting philosophical, the person who created ZipSpeak and 
trplayer no longer exists. I remember being him, and I still have his 
name and email address, but I'm no longer him. I've changed so much over 
the two decades since then. Nothing makes that clearer than Chris's and 
Karen's concerns about my attitude toward Linux console users and, more 
generally, people who don't follow the whims of mainstream technology 
for whatever reason. And those responses have given me something to 
think about, but I don't yet know what I'll do about it. I said what I 
wanted to say on the Fedora accessibility article, and maybe I shouldn't 
have even let myself get pulled into that thread. But I think I'm now 
philosophically far enough away from many, or even most, in this 
community that I will probably retreat again from this list and other 
related lists.
