I've been swamped lately with my Bar Mitzvah and school. I was finally allowed into linuxworld thanks to the kind people of oeone (who I will give a plug here since they do some really cool work with mozilla embedding http://www.oeone.com). It was a lot of fun and I met some good people and saw some great things including the Sun Accessibility Toolkit which got me thinking about Mozilla ccessibility. I also got a chance to poke at what ximian is cooking which was pretty cool. Best of all, I saw timeless who I have done a whole bunch of work with online with Mozilla but never met in person.

I've been pretty busy with school. It was camping the first week, so no hacking from there (the perl-by-pencil idea doesn't appeal to me). Just getting back to normal, but I'll be at Rosh Hashana services on Tuesday and Wednesday to break the cycle again.

I didn't do much today, listened to the radio and heard Bush's morning address and the news on the airport. Still trying to figure out if I am going to LA at the end of the week or if staying in town is safer at the moment.

I did try out the new automated smoketests for Mozilla which are very cool! It's going to take some work to get them to be as good as the human run ones, and we _will_ have to run them manually at least once a week at least for a week for a while to make sure that things are semi-sane.

Tinderbox is also working well. Bugzilla is now being tested with 0.9 and abisource should be upgrading soon as the perl scripts are now released on the web. Email zlipton@cpan.org if you are interested in using them as a tinderbox client.
