This page is here in honor of Rusty Russell, one of the funniest Linux kernel developers EVER

Here are some Rusty Russell quotes:

Well, you don't get to be a kernel hacker simply by looking good in Speedos. (source: http://lwn.net/Articles/67165/)

Rusty has had this in his e-mail signature:

Anyone who quotes me in their sig is an idiot. -- Rusty Russell


Rusty has also had this in his e-mail signature:

There are those who do and those who hang on and you don't see
too many doers quoting their contemporaries. -- Larry McVoy


Rusty often has problems with his last name being mispelled:

In looking through dev.c, I noticed that someone had misspelled my name at the top
of the file, so I sent a quick patch off to Alan and Linus: 

From: Rusty Russell <rusty@linuxcare.com.au>
To: torvalds@transmeta.com, alan@lxorguk.ukuu.org.uk
Subject: [PATCH] Trivial name typo.
Date: Thu, 23 Dec 1999 15:24:07 +1100

Just noticed this... 2.2 and 2.3.  This Russel disease must be stamped
out before it becomes widespread.

Rust.
