Three days! How rad is that?

Translation for the non-software-developers out there: I found a bug in the g3d library, and reported it by filing a bug in the project's bug tracker. A developer named Corey -- not at Brown, not someone I've ever met -- identified the source of the bug, fixed it, and committed a fix, within three days of when I filed the bug.

This is an everyday thing in the land of open source, sure, but it's the first time that it's happened to me.

Try that with a fucking Microsoft library.

Thank you, Corey! Thank you, Morgan!
