Although not development related, this is not OT IMHO.

Living almost at the other side of the world, I would like to express
my heartfelt and deepest sympathy for the victims and their relatives
of the cowardly terroristic acts against innocent people in NYC and
Washington DC. I sincerely hope that most people were able to escape
the towers of the WTC and the Pentagon before they collapsed and I
also hope that our fellow KDE folks in NYC, Bernd and Andreas, are
alive, unharmed and uninjured.

This has been a dark day. An apparently well planned series of crimes
of hate and inhumanity certainly claimed a high number of lives. Let's
hope that the death toll is not skyrocketing.

I would also like to express my hope that the international community
of KDE folks will remain the community of reason it always has been.
Let's continue to stay and work together, regardless of nationality,
sex, skincolour, religion (or non of it), cultur, sexual orientation,
political believes, language or age. Let's be a voice of reason and
hope - in a situation of tragedy and grief like today as we have been
regarding the comuter desktop.

Our hearts and souls are with you over there on the other side of the
Atlantic hit by the deadly deeds of criminals.
