GUADEC, Flickr and holidays

This is a friendly warning for all GNOME hackers, check twice if you ever want to invite Mikael for a drink (Hopefully, I wasn't paying the drinks :)
I had a very interesting GUADEC but as always, I missed interesting talks because they were at the same time other interesting talks. Hopefully Fluendo streams allowed me to catch those talks.
For people interested, my GUADEC photos are available here.
For those who checked the photos, you probably noticed they are now hosted on Flickr. Last Sunday, after about 6 months testing Flickr, I've decided to subscribe to their services (1 year for $24.95, unlimited photo storage, 2GB upload quota per month). I was a little afraid when Flickr announced Yahoo bought them but since, they have demonstrated their are still a great company (lowering price, increasing quota and getting rid of Flash for the standard/notes photo views). I've only put my GUADEC6 photos there yet but I'll migrate my old gallery progressively.
Holidays are approching : on Monday, I'll be flying to the USA for a 12 day tour in West USA, mainly in National Parks. I hope I'll take nice photos there :)
