I slept in my own bed last night, yay.
Whipped up a quick page to document various tools for GNOME Power Users. If you know of such things, add them- the page has already pointed me at BrightSide, which I’d never heard of before. In 2.12, we’re going to remove the ‘open terminal’ option from nautilus, so we’re going to have to have this list organized, fleshed out, and publicizable by then. (I wouldn’t object to it becoming collected into ‘gnome-powertools’ and installable as one package, either, though I’m not sure if that is the right thing overall or not.)
I have a ton of mail to catch up on, so if I’m not responding to you, you’re in very good company.
