I will miss you, dude.

I still remember the first time I meet Chema, at the first GUADEC. There was not a lot of people there, and the spanish speakers where a little bit packed together. I got thus specially tied with Rodrigo, alo, and Chema.

I still remember when Chema and me where alone together in the underground at Paris. Chema said me how exciting was to meet people that shared a common passion. He said me that he had not yet done anything in GNOME, but he wanted to help with gnome-print. He was almost a linux newbee.

A linux newbee, a future gnome hacker, that just wanted to help with gnome-print, just travelled half the planet to meet other gnome hackers. Man, *THAT* was passion. He not only helped with gnome-print, but it became its maintainer, along with gedit, glade3, gst, ...

As I write this, I'm seeing Chema giving away Ximian t-shirts at a Copenhagen's pub, or just explaining frenetically its ideas about GST.

I will miss you, dude.
