I don't know what's with so many people saying 2006 sucked; it was fine for me. I suppose my one-word summary of 2006 would be "stable". Not particularly exciting, but sometimes you need years like that. On the other hand, I've started out 2007 with two successive colds; the one on Thursday/Friday made me half-wake up at 1AM on Friday, semi-delirious, shivering uncontrollably. Not so fun. After sleeping something like a total of 18 hours on Friday, though, I feel much better.
If any of y'all know about H.264 videoconferencing goo, and in particular which (free) clients tend to play nicely with others, I'd be keen to know.
