You know, we haven't heard about your product lately.  How it coming along?  Don't lose focus.  Before you know it, you'll have wasted all afternoon in a newtech flame war, political debate, analysis of some company's purchase (e.g. yahoo), or a myriad of other unfruitful discussions.

Andy, Instead of me actually replying back in kind, I would be more than willing to skype or talk to you via the phone. I welcome you to call bullshit on my knowledge.

There's a big difference in being unemployed by choice vs. by force. I'm not sure you'll grasp the following, but I selected to take time off of work to follow my passion of programming. Since I have the financial freedom, I choose to do so.

Like I said, you have the option of reaching out to me and calling bullshit on anything you believe is a lie. I welcome you to contact me.

Well, Betty, since you and Richard insist:

Richard, your recent newfound expertise in various areas is stunning. You went from not knowing what node.js was, to being an expert. You went from unemployed, to being a startup expert and mentor to all things and all people tech or startup.

Amazing, man, amazing. Glad you're improving yourself, but you sell yourself WAY too hard WAY too often. It's embarrassing to read, I can't understand how you bear to act this way and still respect yourself. Try to sell yourself a little more organically, not so much hard sell, that's all I'm saying.
