Somehow, blogger doesn't let me comment. I'm not sure why, and I'll fix it some time later, or export to Posterous.
Thanks trevor. I've subscribed to your weekly digest. I've been reading Hacker News all this time. However, it wasn't so much that I didn't have time to read, as I didn't have time to synthesize them.
And oh, thanks for the Perforce slides. They've been really helpful.
