Hi Folks,

this is quite OT for a firewall users/devel list, but probably you like this 

Around 2 month ago Tom helped me with a - at least for me - mythical problem 
in my company's network. With his patience, knowledge and some "network 
magic" he could solve my problems within minutes. (Erghh, I was searching for 
a solution a full day long. And this wasn't the first time he helped me 
personally. I asked him if he likes beer and the answer was a short and 
clear: Yep!

So I decided to send him some variants of German beer. I think he liked it, so 
he send me this link today: 


So I think he would like the idea of extending his collection of international 
beers with the help of his users.
Guys, I think it would be a nice (and practical - you all know, beer is 
healthy :-) ) way to thank him for the last years of Shorewall development, 
all the high quality documentation and support. I guess it made live easier 
for many of us.

Those of you who think that this is a nice idea can contact me privately by 
mail and I will give you Tom's snail mail address. 
Those who prefer the networkers style: "whois shorewall.net" :-)

I hope many of you will contribute to pay a bit back to him what he gave to 

Thank you,
Alexander Wilms
