I stayed up to watch the U.S.'s first game and so far, it's incredible.. 3-1 at the half..
Now, I just hope I can stay up to watch the Germany/Ireland match.
I've been working on some 'next-generation' stuff lately. Most of it has been in Python. It's really cool to have someone like gstein to review your code and ideas..
I've been using GNOME2 for the past month or so and it is really rocking. I've been able to put a couple of patches into Bugzilla, hopefully I can help more as I get more comfortable re-learning C and figuring out the various libs.
