    Unfortunately, you are right in that one way of coping with problems is to look the
    other way. And, frankly, just speaking for myself, when I imagine the skills
    required to do the thing you do just as a spare-time contribution to society
    (giving time and energy to Gimp, Gphoto, Gnome, OpenVerse, and
    PageCast, and hosting a Boy Scout troop's web site, and
    then I flap.

    I guess what bootstrapping is about is utilizing every last bit of every last
    resource to optimize feedback for mankind's improvement processes.
