    You probably get a number of messages like this, but here is mine... 
    My name is Erik Johnson, and I work in Albuquerque, NM for a small
company called WellKeeper, Inc. We do remote oil & gas well
monitoring, and I am using Python as a replacement for Perl & PHP,
both for supporting dynamic web pages as well as driving a number of
non-web-based servers and data processors.
    I just wanted to take a moment and say "Thank you!" to you, Guido,
and your team for developing Python and then so generously sharing it
with the world. I know it must be a pretty thankless job sometimes. I
am still a neophyte Python hacker (Pythonista?), but I have been
pretty impressed with Python so far, and am looking forward to
learning Python better and accomplishing more with it in near near and
not too distant future.
    So... thanks again, Happy New Year, and best wishes to you, your
family, and your Python team for 2005!  (I hope you will pass these
good wishes along to your team.)
Erik Johnson
