It's so easy to be annoying

I seem to have really ticked off John Munsch. He seems to have misconstrued my weekend of pleasant hacking as some great anti-open-source conspiracy and a direct attack on his own project - which is also an RSS feed reader. I have to admit that I was completely unaware of his efforts, and I'm sure that his is a most excellent piece of work, unlike the quick hack I slapped together. Just because others have done RSS feed readers (or any other kind of software), does not mean that suddenly no one else has the right to do the same. I hack because it's fun. I picked that topic because it was interesting. It's sad that the good Mr Munsch feels stepped on. I did not intend that. He does need to lighten up and get a sense of humour. Life's to short to spend it wound up in a knot of needless fury.
