There's a lot of stuff I can say in response to it, but I won't. Instead, I
would admit defeat. I apologise for criticising Dov in public, and offer him a
complementary beverage of his choice during the next time we meet (and I'm
afraid I have yet to associate his name with a face.). Since he's working for
FreeScale and has the telephone of +972-9 (which is the Sharon) he is likely
to be located in Herzeliyah Pituakh, which is pretty convenient from me. I'll
call him about scheduling a meeting.
In any case: $shlomi_fish-- $uri_bruck++ (compromising for brevity over good
practices - varvarname. - ;-)).
