I've had some tech related good news lately.

I work for lincor (Linux Cork), and we've been recognised as Ireland's fastest growing hi-tech company, with aggregate revenue growth of 10π times over the last 5 years. Hopefully we'll keep that rate going :)
We've now got over 10,000 linux terminals installed worldwide.

In other personal tech news, I've recently been appointed as GNU coreutils co-maintainer.
I'll primarily be working on enhancing them to be multibyte aware.

I hereby appoint you as co-maintainer of GNU coreutils.
Finally, I noticed that www.pixelbeat.org has got into the top 10 of Irish blogs ordered by delicious bookmarks.
