Thank you!

And I'd like to take the time to thank all of you who helped me reach
this goal, but that ranges to about everyone here who I talked to at any
conference those last two or three years (I still remember talking about
that at PGDay 2008 in Prato, but the ball was already rolling if only in
my head).

You might also be interested to know that the research leading to these
results has received funding from the European Union's Seventh Framework
Programme (FP7/2007-2013) under grant agreement 258862.

Wise move. Again :)
