All that went rather quickly. I think in less than an hour, with time differences and all, it was all set.

One "bug" though. For some groups, I received a notification that I was added again. For some, there was none, although I was indeed added again. A bit of confusion there. Unsure why.

One advantage of doing this over christmas, was to send "best wishes" at the same time and getting in touch with all my friends.

Would recommend :)

AWS joins the Blender Development Fund —

I'm glad gets money for development and improvements. But I don't understand this move from AWS. Makes little sense to me.

"This boat-shaped particle is 30 micrometres long and can propel itself using a chemical reaction. Researchers 3D-printed the particle and coated it with metal. This catalyses a reaction in the hydrogen peroxide solution in which the particle sits, to produce gas that pushes it along."
