We won't miss you.

And besides, you're running plenty of our code every day. It's probaby
in your pocket right now.

The use of CARP does not preclude the use of VRRP on the same network
either.

How about checking your facts before making wrong claims next time?
carp and vrrp work prefectly fine next to each other on the same
network.

I explained what lead to the mac addr at least twice right in this
