Kathleen Fent is, according to slashdot.org, CmdrTaco's sweetheart. Taking advantage of Valentine's Day, he proposed to her on February 14, 2002. In a story entitled Kathleen Fent Read This Story from the typed-with-one-pair-of-sweating-palms department, he wrote:
Kathleen, I wanted to do this in this most potentially embarassing way possible, and I figured doing it here and now, in front of a quarter of a million strangers was as good a way as any. I love you more then [sic] I can describe within the limits of this tiny little story. We've been together for many years now, and I've known for most of that time that I wanted to spend my life with you. Enough rambling. Will you marry me?
She responded, within 15 minutes, 30 seconds, in an email message similar to the following:
Dork. You made me cry. :)
The article was open to comments; the page is available at http://slashdot.org/comments.pl?sid=27966. Combining marriage and open-source talk, posters came up with witty responses like, "If you two get married, will you be all propritary [sic] towards her, or will she be open source?"
Kathleen Fent has slashdot UID 570, and a homepage at sarcasta.net (also available by fent.net). The site is entitled, "Sarcasta.net - Your Randomest Source for Misinformation."
