And thanks for the great notes Igal!

Great job tonight Michelle and Adam, and thanks to WebTrends, Emma,
and the videographers!

A personal thanks to everyone who gave me cash at the bar afterward.
I know it wasn't our best beer experience, but the waitress told me
that she was having a bad night with some other customers and that we
were great.  The money turned out right on, so I won't be having to
break any thumbs.  ;-)

Thanks guys!  Looking forward to next month!

PS - Use nose over py.test IMHO.  I still haven't figured out running
doctests in py.test and it looked trivial in nose (might be in py.test
too, the docs aren't the greatest).  py.test may have fancy
distributed testing abilities, but I sure don't need them.  I would
think buildbot or some other tool could accomplish automated tests
just as well instead of expecting your test runner to do everything.
