If he pays a visit to Kargasniemi or Karesuvanto, I'll probably be passing both towns during my vacation this summer. But I guess that if he is back in his homeland then, he will probably stay much further south in the country. I have never visited the south of Finland - I would like to spend a vacation there, but I guess I'd prefer it to be a vacation. Not for discussing OS design (and lack thereof).

I guess my need for fierce turf wars is fully satisified during my working day. If I should happen to meet one of the big gurus by accident, I would probably do as I use to when meeting people with strong opinions and egos: Act a lot less experienced than I am, but rather poke him with some far more thought out questions that they initially appear, to have him reveal more of his real thoughts and approaches to things, when he doesn't feel that he has to "defend" things, but rather "explain". You reveal a lot more when you explain. And the listener, me, can place "naive" questions at the right time to dig far deeper than what comes out of a turf war.

Sidetracking: One of my friends, on his way to becoming a top rate DBMS expert in the 1980s, had the database guru Jim Gray as his idol. At VLDB conferences, he was chasing Grey, hoping to one day get so close that he could say that he had been touching Jim Gray's coat Smile | :)

Then, one day at a VLDB conference, he saw Jim Gray coming right at him, cheering: "Hi, I hear that you guys are from Norway, is that right? Getting drunk with Norwegains is always great fun! Would you like to come along for a drinking night?" ... My friend went along, and the two became friends for live: When my friend married, Gray crossed the Atlantic to be his best man. I don't know if they ever were discussing database systems. Most likely they did, but that is not what formed a close friendship.
