Acknowledgments

Acknowledgments

From Jeff Peters

I usually read acknowledgments in the books I buy, and many of them seem to be quite similar, thanking all kinds of folks who helped get the book together. Having finished this, my first book, I understand why that is the case. This book would not be in your hands without the great work of a whole bunch of people. I’d like to thank Nat for his ability to hang with me and see this project through; Michael Smith at TeraTech, for believing it would happen; Steve Nelson, for being the biggest Fusebox cheerleader in the world; Elise Walter and Fred Speers at New Riders, for having the vision to drive us into producing a much better book (without making us crazy!); Hal Helms, for daring me to start writing about Fusebox—I may never forgive you; the members of the Fusebox community, whose ideas challenge the status quo every day; and my wife Kathryn, for the forbearance to learn what it means to be married to someone who not only gets lost in computers, but then spends more time to write about them. Finally, I would be remiss in not thanking Jesus Christ, whose example of an orderly universe is the inspiration for much of how I see orderly systems like Fusebox. Thank you all for being part of the adventure!

From Nat Papovich

One of the more pleasurable tasks of being an author is to thank the people who contributed to the success of the book. My greatest thanks goes to Jeff for his amazing productivity. I would like to thank my family and friends, particularly Hood Frazier, for really believing in me; Corey Snow, for giving me a chance; my partner Erik Voldengen, for inciting a much-needed change; and my parents, for leading by example.

Many Fuseboxers had a hand in this book, especially Michael Smith for directing us toward New Riders; Hal Helms & Paul Mone, for the laughs; Steve Nelson and Gabe Roffman, for sharing their creation; and Craig Girard, for the original, much-needed effort.

Most of all, my love, appreciation, and thanks to my wife and editor, Sarah. No words can describe my gratitude in having her beside me.
