Mycroftiv helped guide me through my learning of the world of plan9. From helping me get wifi drivers installed on my first bare metal setup,
to encouraging me to take my first steps towards being an active member, to teaching me about the crazy magic he was up to with spawngrid.
His thoughts on namespaces have been integral to how I think and view the system. He was always looking for ways to use plan9 to better
understand the world around us, or as a medium for communicating his thoughts and feelings. He helped push not only myself but the community
and system as a whole. For these, I can not thank him enough.

To mycroftiv, a visionary, a friend, and a mentor, you will be missed.
