I certainly did not. I just scratched an itch. Then people starting appearing
from everywhere using it, and helping me out with code and providing good
advice and then... it turned out to this. You guys tricked me into this!! =)

curl is kind of my life mission. I was 27 years old back then when I started
this and I'm turning 43 this year. While I've been caring for curl all these
years I've married, moved into a house, gotten two kids, changed employer
twice and started my own company... but I've stayed with curl as my life has

Some 10,000 hours later, I still spend an average of more than one hour per
day working on curl...

Now, back to our regular programming. I'm doing this rather larger HTTP test
server CONNECT handling overhaul and it makes my head spin...
