Sounds great to me!

And this is a very nice approach to learning and getting to know 
fellow hackers i suppose.

What is a good time e.g. weatherwise to come to Seattle?  

Btw, it seems that in January we are going to attempt some 
longer term planning regarding sprints ... 

cheers & thanks, 


P.S.: side note: one thing i really dislike about coming to the 
      states is this fingerprint/iris scan thingie and i know i am not 
      alone with this.  OTOH, the german government is even planning 
      to introduce similar requirements in our passports, anyway. 
      So i presume it gets more difficult everywhere to escape 
      more or less total government surveillance possibilities ... 
      only that germany should know better.
