At last. The string stuff is all turned on. I activated it Monday night (24 hours ago). Bloat went down by 4M. That's 16%. :-) I think most of this is from the fact that nsPromiseConcatenation is a lot more space efficient than the old nsSubsumeString. The tree was busy today, but not a hiccup for strings. That's good. I'm happy. Now we have to start deploying the alternate implementations.

Today was my first day as a full-time employee of mozilla.org. Life is good; but I've been in Mountain View too long. It's time to head back home to Michigan for a little rest. Getting to M16 has been a lot of effort for everybody. There's plenty of bug-fixing to do, but I need a little rest after more than 3 months on-site.

I was surprised today to find that my father just opened an Advogato account. Cool!
