Oh my God...

I just...  It's so beautiful.  I don't even know what to say.

If you can help it, please don't ever stop making iPXE the absolute
pinnacle of F/OSS awesomeness that it has been since I first
discovered it.

Thank you so much. Really and truly. This absolutely makes my day.

Please keep up the *very* excellent work!

Best Regards,
Andrew Bobulsky
