Why doesn't AppFuse use Maven?

My newest reply for why AppFuse doesn't use Maven is going to be this link. Ant rocks. I still need to update AppFuse's build.xml to use all the Ant 1.6 stuff - that's scheduled for next week's late nights.

Flights are booked!

I just booked our flights to California's wine country to spend our 5 year anniversary in April. I'm going to the MySQL Users Conference on Monday, and Julie is joining me on Friday. From there, we'll drive down to the Fog Catcher Inn for a romantic getaway and lots of wine tasting. We can't wait! Hard to believe it's been 5 years - Abbie and Jack are good reminders of how long it's been though. Kids rock.

DU Hockey #1 in the Nation

Yeah baby! Denver unbeaten in last nine games at 8-0-1. How good is DU? We've been to every Saturday game this year, and they've yet to lose when we're there. Must be Abbie, Jack and I's lucky shirts. Must be time to buy some playoff tickets!

The worst part of all this? DU's biggest rivalry is CC (Colorado College) and they play March 3rd and 4th - same time as TheServerSide Symposium. Damn, I guess I'll be watching (and betting if I can) from Vegas.
