Wow 10 years that is incredible!! Your blog post was awesome.  You are an inspiration to me as I just started contributing this past October.  I can honestly see how you have spent 10 years of "spare hours" night time engineering.  I find contributing a bit addictive myself.  Here is what happens to me at night, on my right shoulder a little Guido appears out of thin air and says "go to bed" but then on my left shoulder another Guido appears and says "all you have to do is test this last patch".  Next thing you know it is 2 am and I have to get up at 5 am for work so I convince myself to stay up all night.  Indeed contributing to Python is very rewarding.
