Gabber is #16 for most active projects this week, and #60 for most downloads this week on sourceforge. Pretty cool. :)
I fixed a few bugs, and talked with DizzyD, and it seems we will release 0.5.1 within a week.
I heard that they finally found the dark matter in the universe.... superheated hydrogen... it's almost hard to believe that that mystery was solved so soon. Most of my cosmology books talk about not knowing how many decades it will be before we solve that problem. It's very nice to know that now the big bang theory doesn't have that gaping hole against it, and that all of the mass of the universe is accounted for. :)
I'm tempted to take some college-level cosmology course, but I don't know if it would be way over my head or not. Cosmology/Astronomy was my original interest as a young child, and still interests me to this day, it's just that computers jumped in, and they're something I can easily do now. It's not quite so easy for me to teach myself (astro)physics and such, but I guess I never really tried. ;)
