Thanks for the plug. :)

I plan on making it to the Gnome meeting, even though I don't use it for a desktop, but for just the GUI framework stuff.

I look forward to your presentation on Linux Photography, hopefully I can make it to BARcamp by then. You just had to pick the first time slot ;). I also look forward to seeing you at the Gnome User Group meeting.
