Linux Journal article - possible advocacy potential

At the risk of shattering any illusions about my modesty...

I have written an article for the Oct. 2001 issue of Linux Journal that some may find useful for advocacy purposes (it's not really a technical article). It's titled "Open Source Software at the Aerodynamics Laboratory".

    Hmm, Erudil, when I run this code I get the following message:

    % perl erudil-obfu No such class modesty at erudil-obfu line 1, near "illusions about my +modesty" syntax error at erudil-obfu line 1, near "my modesty..." Bareword found where operator expected at erudil-obfu line 3, near "20 +01 issue" (Missing operator before issue?) Execution of erudil-obfu aborted due to compilation errors.

    Oh wait -- you tricked us, you posted a non-obfu! Excellent article, even if I can't find the ++ on the page...

    Erudil very nice article. ++!

    2 questions:
      You mentioned your organization conducts wind testing on motorcycles...
    You wouldnt have happened to test a 2001 Suzuki GSX-R600, by chance?
    Do you conduct these tests with the rider on the machine? what positions? who gets to ride the wind tunnel? :)

    Again, respect += new found respect;

    <update> I E-Mailed Erudil with the above questions (as they were off topic), and he did get back to me. Proud be a fellow monk of this great guy!</update>
