Google Summer of Code 2006: W00t~ (..I think.. @.O)
Congratulations! This email is being sent to inform you that your
application was accepted to take part in the Summer of Code. Please
check your student home page in the SoC web app at
http://code.google.com/soc/student_home.html to determine which of
your applications was accepted.

You know what's weird... I would have sworn I dreamt this morning that I went to a page that said out of all the applications accepted for that livejournal project, mine was the third best. ^^;; Damn realistic dreams. So I've been confuzzled the past... 15 so minutes, trying to figure out if this was some mistake or joke~

But it does say "Application accepted!" on my home page. So I'm assuming my application did make it through. Yay~!

Your mentoring organization will likely also set up similar lists for
you and your cohorts so that they may interact with you on your
project. You should not wait for them, please feel free to contact
them and let them know you are ready to start developing open source
software with them.

Right, must go hunt down... errr... people... I guess I should ask brad first? Eh, either way, it'll have to wait until I get back from my doctor's appointment.

http://www.livejournal.org/soc2006.html : LiveJournal Style Upload
Create a system to upload a style/theme as a zip file of template files/CSS/images/etc, and then convert/compile that into S2. Support MT/Blogger/Wordpress/Smarty templates? Something that's easy for users to open up (the zip), edit, and re-upload. Involves defining archive format, and implementing server-side code to parse and recompile to native formats.

Kickass Congrats man! You've got something fun! Btw... do they pay you?

Google does, yes.
How do payments work?
Google will provide a stipend of 5000 USD per accepted student developer, of which 4500 USD goes to the student and 500 USD goes to the mentoring organization. Youll be paid 500 USD upon acceptance of your application to the program, 2000 USD mid-program (assuming you've made sufficient progress on your project), and 2000 USD at close of program (assuming you've completed your project.) The mentoring organization will receive its share upon completion of the project.
(sorry, copying and pasting, 'cause I'm a tad bit lazy right now)

So I'll have enough money to uh.. pay the rent now. :D And maybe, if I find another job, buy a MacBook Pro. Or shiny toys~
