I'm also very happy to announce that Jibz now has his own software section on the DonationCoder.com software hub:http://donationcoder.com/jibz
Please consider making a donation to jibz
to welcome him to the site.
Allow me to express some personal thoughts.
I met Jibz over 2 years ago on irc, talking about c++ and compression. We ended up collaborating on a fun open source project called Octane (Open Compression Toolkit: http://octane.sourceforge.net/
). Everyone who knows jibz seems to regard him with a kind of reverance. He's one of the most soft spoken, professional people you'll meet, with an endearing perfectionist streak.
He's also one of the most generous programmer's I know, and his help in getting DonationCoder.com off the ground has been invaluable. I'm not sure this site would have ever started if not for his encouragement and support.
