Back in Austin.

It's fun to to see the Evolution hackers getting excited and making good progress on 2.0. Ettore has finally gotten the 2.0 schedule in reasonable shape. The schedule combined with the reality of actually getting to write new code seems to have given everyone a little boost of motivation.

I went ahead and scanned some of the quick sketches that I did while in Boston. Sketching directly in pen can be challenging for me because I end up having to live with any errors in line or proportion. I'm fairly happy with the results but I can still see a huge amount of room for improvement.

The actual act of scanning is still a lot more painful than it should be. Every time I use xsane I'm reminded by how much of a pain it was to do image drawing back in the gtk-1.x days.
