It was never my intention to burn bridges. I was only reacting to his 
Steve's a liar post.

If you really want this public, here is what I said:


Email can be a very poor medium to exchange words. You took my "do you 
know who you're talking with" email the wrong way.

All I wanted to say is that Steve represents the ideas of this project. 
So if he says something, even if it's technically not the reality of 
codebase, you can't say he's lying. He knows the direction we're going. 
So maybe he's starting to talk about this more publicly. Which should be 
a good thing. Lying: That's a very strong accusation.

No personal disrespect was meant to you. I really like the work you did 
on TangoGPS.

My apologies. Peace?


This particular list, over last few days, has just been too 
emotionally-charged for my tastes. I'll be silent for a bit and catch up 
reading new messages over the weekend when I fly again. Hopefully things 
calm down by then.
