Slashdot editor proposes on front page

Valentine's Day special

Here's a romantic story for Valentine's Day and there's an IT angle (sort of).

Commander Taco, the legendary founder of Slashdot, the town hall of the opensource community, proposed to his girlfriend today - by way of a posting on the front page.

Here it is in full.

Kathleen, I wanted to do this in this most potentially embarassing way possible, and I figured doing it here and now, in front of a quarter of a million strangers was as good a way as any. I love you more then I can describe within the limits of this tiny little story. We've been together for many years now, and I've known for most of that time that I wanted to spend my life with you. Enough rambling. Will you marry me? Update 15 minutes 30 seconds later: Subj: "Yes", message body: "Dork. You made me cry. :)" Hazah! I'm getting married! :)

Isn't that nice?

You may leave your congratulations here. ®
