Indeed, my chiropractor worked miracles. Unfortunately, it means i've slept way more than i should have since my last entry.

Answered lots of emails about ``why is zip required for the windows mozilla build now?'' and ``shouldn't there have been mail sent about this?''... to which i answered, ``jar packaging of the chrome'' and ``yeah, sorry.''

Next time a netscape "principle engineer" has a carpool scheduled, i'm going to have my dartgun ready.

Today, i visited my miracle working chiropractor... and will have, i hope, the first night of non-one-hour interval sleep in three days.

I came up with a fix for the ``remove core directories in the source tree when clobbering''... unfortunately, it led me to discover a dist directory in the source, as a side effect of my patch neglecting to remove the generated dist directory. So... do i enforce dist as a reserved word in the mozilla tree? or do i spend more time to remove only the toplevel-generated dist directory? shaver doesn't seem to like reserved words (he didn't like core as a reserved word, for instance)... and damnit, i've always been shaver's bitch.

Also, jst and vidur landed their huge dom string api changes. Whee fun. Luckily we got the landing started early, and they did pretty good due diligence... we'll find out tomorrow for real if there's more to shake out of their landing.

Looked at housing with Lisa today... middle of nowhere. Looked pretty nice after the day's spinning of bits.

I still haven't figured out what made the mac automation misfire... regxpcom is the culprit, but it hasn't acted up since.

Gave brief talk about ``Contributing to Mozilla'' at the second mozilla developer's day (http://www.alphanumerica.com/events/mozilla-meeting-2.0/).

Luckily, scc arrived as i was running out of things to say (how many different ways can i say ``write code, test code, discuss design''?), and gave us all a lesson about C++, and clarified his role as developer relations person (along with blizzard, shaver, and brendan).

170 people showed up. We're starting to have momentum. I am pleased.

And now, it's off to find housing (something i must do in the next week).

Woke up. Rode down 101 to work, mostly splitting lanes (you have to love congestion).

Stumped so far today by 1.) mac build automation misfiring and 2.) getting an xpcom component to register successfully.

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.
