A fortnight between diary entries isn't too bad. I've uh... been busy.

A lot has happened in the last two weeks: I found out I was going to Paris for GUADEC, a GNOME conference. I went to New York for that LinuxWorld thingy, I chilled with my homey phil and I worked like a dog.

Phil's assertion that garlic bread and pants are the same led me to thinking... If this Helix Code thing doesn't take off, that there is a completely untouched market for garlic pants. Google comes up almost empty in that department, as does a quick patent search. I'm going to be so rich.

Speaking of travelling abroad, apparently due to some legislation, all government forms must now have state the "Estimated burden" of filling it out. My passport application has an estimated burden of 20 minutes, so I'll just chalk that up in my time wasted column. At least they know what a pain in the ass this is.

On the work front: Yes, we did ship GNOME packages to LinuxPPC for their new release. We built the packages because of our expertise in the area, since we have several maintainers of the packages.
As for spidermonkey, your wait will be over at GUADEC in mid-March if not sooner. And no, I won't tell you what it is quite yet.
