That's great news! :) Always happy to see that there is more than just
a few of us here having a play with it.

Ooh excellent. It's always good to have people running things in
anger. I figure the first few months we'll all be learning off each
other and then learning more specific things as time goes on.

On a different note, I did 6 months at Weta in a dim and distant past
so it's quite interesting to hear how things are changing over there.
Let's face it, with that many machines communication and concurrency
are what it's all about and we all know that Go does both of these
things quite easily. :) Sounds like a perfect match.

Not a problem, in fact I'm really enjoying it and we haven't even had
our first meeting yet.
