Working at ActiveState was a lot of fun. It was interesting working on Komodo, and learning about the Mozilla code base.

I got to feed the useful mozilla fixes back upstream that was good. I got bug 107651 - Handle multiple file drops on mozilla (gtk build) using the text/uri-list target into the 0.9.6 release (which is not as useful as it could be, due to many mozilla dnd observers not being set up for multiple item drops).

I have a few other useful patches pending:

Hopefully some of these will get into 0.9.7.

The weather was great on the weekend. Went out kneeboarding with some friends. We put together a two metre tower high on the back of the boat built from two spars lashed together. It looked a bit dodgy, but it worked pretty well. It made getting up on the board a lot easier (it was my first time kneeboarding in over a year, and I was expecting to fall off almost immediately).
