Seems like everyone else at GUADEC is doing diary entries, so I decided to follow the fashion.

It's been utterly cool seeing all these hordes of Gnome hackers in person. In general, all the people are really cool, though some cultural differences are a bit more easily noticeable IRL than just via electronic communication. Nothing major, though, everyone is coming along just fine.

I am just a bit disappointed by the presence, or rather the lack thereof, of some key Gimp people here. Thankfully, tigert is more than making up for it by hacking icons all the time. He's attracting lots of spectators and one couldn't really hope for a better promoter of Gimp.

Along with tigert, the most popular person around here has probably been raph. Everybody wants to talk with him about all kinds of cool stuff, so it's been pretty much impossible trying to just have a little chat with him. Ahwell.

Hmm. The organizers just came here and said they're going to shut down these machines. Got to quit for now.
