I do not know you personally but I benefited so much from your
contributions, in particular the filesystem library I adopted a long
time ago. Thanks to you and what you freely shared, I was able to
achieve great things without spending the time to reinvent the wheel.
Thank you also for having been even further in proposing filesystem to
the standard committee. It is an enormous amount of time to submit a
library to boost but I am sure it is even more involving to submit a
library to the standard.

Love from France!
