For transparency, I'll disclose that I've been financially compensated (through GSoC as well as my current employer) for my contributions to free software. It would be great if more folk could be compensated, but my point still stands: if you're not doing this for your own enjoyment, you're doing it for the wrong reason.

I don't drink often. But when I do, it's a pint at 11 in the morning.

DHL managed to get me a tube of urushi from Tokyo in three days. I've never been this impressed by something as mundane as international shipping.

New Limp Bizkit album slaps. I feel like I'm reliving life when I was 13.
