I object ;)

I think that even when Daniel would stop, the project wouldn't die.

And isn't this the main problem with all (starting) open-source projects?

If I make it to LAC this year, I'll bring along a setup that might even 
impress you more ;)

Freebob works, it works lot better than last year. and it has a lot of
