Despite being more than three years since posting my last diary entry here, I'm contributing more to Free Software than ever before. Cream is better than ever, and open source has grown bigger than I could have imagined.

Reflecting back, I realize now that even small skills can add quite a bit to projects. I've become proficient in building Nullsoft installers, and can now offer them to various projects that can use one.

I've been 100 percent Free Software for several years now. This has meant the suspension of genealogical research waiting for GRAMPS to mature, but that time is quickly approaching. It has also meant I've been able to do no CAD at home, but I hope that in the next three years this, too, could change. Hopefully, it won't be 3 years until the next posting, but we'll see.
