thanks for the note.

>> Being recognized at the same time by the Free Software Foundation (ok,
>> they rewarded the man, Fernando Perez who created and drives the free
>> software project and code) and by Microsoft, is quite an achievement !
> Thanks, but like everything in both IPython and the larger scientific

> you're modest. Having a group of people working efficiently, on the long
run as a team is not a small achievement. I recognize the team work fully.

I appreciate your other mail about «string attached» and the fact that
Microsoft gave the money for the best and without conditions.
