I hope the cease-fire seems like Sudan has been a mess for almost as long as I can remember.

Wow, here's hoping!

People tend to forget about all the people dying in the Sudan, especially with the other tragedies (i.e. the tsunamis) being so prominent on the news. I hope it all works out.

I'm so pleased about this news, even though the situation in Darfur continues to be a tragedy.
I worked in Sudan 1984/85. It was a challenging but rewarding experience, and I will never forget the kindness and hospitality shown to me by local people.
When I was there, there was a military coup (thankfully non-violent on that occasion), and I had to leave the country after the country was cut off from the rest of the world for some weeks. A rather trying time, especially for my parents.
Since I've been back in UK I have watched with distress how the situation over there has gone from bad to worse. I do hope this new peace accord will bring some stability.
