    Totally forgot to mention that Krissa got a new job yesterday! Still with BU, and not in biology, but will be challenging and rewarding, sounds like. And sounds like her new boss is a very cool guy- apparently he was deeply involved with site selection for the Apollo landings. We celebrated by hitting chez henri.…

    Thanks to Paul, Marco, JP, and jrb for commenting on the mozilla stuff. I wrote code last night based on jrb’s suggested solution that would do what paul says garnome says, grossly copying things around post-install. But as you can see from the logs, I did something wrong, and it looks like jhbuild is tracebacking.…

    For the various wacky Spaniards who read p.g.o., creative commons is officially launching in Spain. If you’re lucky enough to be in Barcelona, there will apparently be a launch event there. GOGOGO. :)

    As a followup to my last post, I finally found, downloaded, and ran the newest OOo builds, and I have to say I’m impressed- OOo now seems to launch nearly as fast as gnumeric does, and it actually seems to be doing some theme-matching magic by default. Icons still look like they were drawn in…

    Mixed day today; made some progress on some things (and had a good talk with Nat) but in other places little progress was made. That kind of a day, I guess. Didn’t get any time to hack on tinderbox-y bits today, or even think about it much. Did see neither yelp nor evo are picking…

    Turns out moz is only about 1/2 hour to check out and build, at least last night, so mozilla will stay in the build for right now. Unfortunately, evolution doesn’t build against a jhbuilt mozilla for some reason, still. Would be nice to figure out why, but on the other hand, evolution is the only…

    Weekend was good; good to get away- gave me the energy to deal with mail and play with tinderbox until a very late hour once I got back. Surprisingly, despite only being in Miami for around 33 hours, it still felt like a very good, full weekend- not rushed at all. I also accomplished some…
