There are 4 guys who are the luckiest in the world right now. First, the three guys who wrote RadRails:

In addition to winning the award for best Open Source Eclipse developer tool, the last time I talked to them they had no less than *5* job offers while at the conference.

So who's the fourth? Me of course, because I have a wife who loves me very much and is dealing with the kids back home while I'm enjoying myself here at the conference. Look at what she sent me last night:

To my wife Lisa and my sons Christopher and Michael, I love you and miss you very much. I'll see you soon.
