I'm happily playing with a nightly build of Mozilla right now (August 8, fresh off the presses). I've been banging on it a little, and I haven't gotten it to crash yet -- I've run into some bugs, but more of the quirky kind than anything else.

I can do just about everything in advogato, for example, except visit my account page -- it gives me the login screen again. Since this seems to be the only place that I can post diary entries or articles, of course, I had to fire up Netscape 4 to get here. I can reply to articles without any problem, though. :-)

A good night of Denemo hacking tonight -- tuplets are handled a lot more gracefully now. (In fact, as I tested it I realized that I'd introduced a bug a few days ago such that trying to insert tuplets at all would quickly lead to a segfault; quick to fix, though.) I'm gonna have to debug the x positioning code real soon, though; the results were pretty ugly when I put septuplets in one staff against sixteenth notes in another.

On a completely unrelated note, I actually put a new version of my home page together, so if you follow the link at the top of my account page you'll actually find something there.

On the presidential race... I'm liking that Gore's selected Liebermann as his running mate. I've been Jewish all my life and a Connecticut voter (in New Haven, no less) for the past 4 years, so I think I can credibly say that the man is a mensch. Besides that, it gets, like, a good-side-of-the-force Yalie on the ballot. One who I can pretty much guarantee wasn't some academic lightweight legacy... in fact, I wonder if Yale still had limits on the number of Jews it'd would admit back when Liebermann was there. That still might've been the case even that late.
