Many thanks to the organizers, volunteers and Gnomers who helped make GUADEC 2008 possible! There were a few glitches (please open up SSL and VPN ports next time!), but overall it was a success. I also appreciate being able to present my talk on measuring the GNOME footprint. If I'd anticipated the interest, I would have gone into more detail regarding the extensive use of dtrace in this study, but John Rice covered that well in his talk. I'll try to post the details here as soon as possible. I also appreciate the fact that my friend Andrei, a Google Summer of Code student, is eager to use some of my techniques in his memory profile study. It was great to see my friends again and I look forward to seeing them again at a future GUADEC!
