I'm pretty certain that we've had at least one 7-day period
without new Critical bugs -- the only probablem was that such
periods coincided with having old Critical bugs around.

I'll admit that our record so far is still less than 48 hours of
critical-bug-free-ness.  But once we *do* have some bugs in the
system, we can go for days and days without any new critical bugs
being reported.  If we'd been a bit faster in fixing some bugs, or
a bit luckier and having a Critical bug report a few days later...
or luckier in having critical bugs being reported earlier, and
then getting fixed earlier... then I think we could have had 2.14
by now.

Well, I'm definitely budgeting at least an hour of emails per day
(not necessarily at night).  The sucky part was the interactive
ssh over wireless, not the laptop in general.

My traveling companion is a long-time family friend, and is also a
workaholic, so she'll understand.  I think.

(is it wrong that I've started looking at https javascript ssh
sites, so that if I'm stuck waiting in a line-up or something, I
can whip out my kindle and log in to my desktop at university? :)
