MichaelCrawford: There are Mozilla 1.5 packages in unstable; a simple apt-cache policy mozilla-browser will show this. There's also mozilla-browser-snapshot, which as you found, is taken from CVS. Oh, and you'll probably want mozilla-xft, to enable pretty anti-aliased fonts. Personally, I run testing with certain things from unstable (Mozilla, Gnome) and I've never had a problem. I've never understood why some people claim testing is more 'unstable' than unstable - anyone care to explain this to me?

Someone is rating a lot of diaries at 1 - notable diaries include haruspex and id, but if you have a look through your rating list you'll probably notice quite a few other low rating diaries that don't deserve to be. Also, the ratings page has some oddities such as d/madv000642 2 4 d/jimw: 1.1 ±0.3 (confidence 9.5e-10) and 31.882 d/sdodji: 5.1 ±4.6 (confidence 4.e-323) (which is sdodji's second entry in the list) - it's possible the ratings database is corrupt or something - changes I've made to ratings haven't gone through in the past day. Hmm, it appears that tk of all people is who's been rating interesting (IMHO) diaries low. And it was tk who noticed the ratings were stuck a while ago although you'd never know it since he nukes his diary entries every now and again. Anyway. Enough random ranting about diary ratings.
