I am swamped now. I will try to write here daily, but who knows... My Bar Mitzvah is Saturday and I read Torah at the minyan today. Going to LinuxWorld tomorrow with a bunch of Mozilla People which will be fun and a much needed break.
I don't know what the wiki tag here does, but here goes <wiki>this is in a wiki!</wiki> I'll have to see how that comes out.
I took over BiDi qa the other day, which means I have lots of bugs to verify. Got tinderbox scripts under control for abisource and perl though, so things are looking good over there. Thanks to hwaara for pointing us together.
I really don't have too much more to say. I hope to get some docs stuff under control next week, though I have the layer slayer to work on and school, ugh, which starts Tuesday.

I have been so busy. Life is wrecking my life! I am junking some of my ideas. No time. If someone else with time wants to do them, go ahead! More entries to come later.

Oh, I hate my life in opensource :) If only SOMEONE at Netscape would remember to pay me once and a while:)

Well, I am getting involved with the mozoffice project. See http:// mozoffice.mozdev.org for more information about the project. We are still in the planing phase of the project, but rcassin (hurricane) is working on the task launcher phase of the program.

Hello everyone. I am Zach Lipton and a newbie to the opensource world. I have been involved in QA with the mozilla project and am starting to get involved with openoffice. I am going to be the mirror site cordinator for open office and I will also be in charge of the status reports once that gets off the ground.
