Quite some time ago now, we started switching our projects from Subversion to Mercurial. Why you may ask?

On friday, we received the best Christmas present ever – the Nintendo Wii (thanks Hasi!). On monday, you could already feel the eagerness of people (well, not really people, developers) coming to the office. But as of today, the eagerness went through the roof – we bought a projector!
