Open Source Projects ...

I really enjoy helping out with open source projects. And an email this morning did a good job of reminding me why. I sent in a bug about 11:30 on Monday night that had been bugging me for a while and I noticed was still present in the latest development snapshot I am running. Last night, someone from the QA group marked it for the next release. This morning, I get an update to the bug that the developer found a subtle error in the way things were being calculated and its now fixed. So, 36 hours after submitting a bug (which annoys me greatly) it has been fixed and next time I grab a development snapshot, it will be fixed. That just rocks. Just proves to me that running betas and development snapshots of software and reporting bugs really helps a project.
