3:35 PM Silly IE users

Some silly IE users nearby. They are complaining about pages that are appearing rendered in IE, instead of displaying in text form. Of course, this is because the files aren't actually HTML but just happen to have similar content and IE does incorrect things in this case.

Of course, I was using a browser that handles everything correctly so I never noticed a problem. I was wondering why I was working so much efficiently.

1:06 PM XBL Fixing

I have some ideas for the Unnamed Semantic Web Client involving XBL that require various low-level changes in order to work.

So, I've been looking at some of the XBL code in Mozilla lately. There's a few bugs I'd want to see fixed and it would probably be simple enough to fix them myself. I think I understand the general architecture now to at least be able to say I know what I'm talking about. And Hyatt is offering a free dinner for helping him. (No link as all non-Safari related content seems to have disappeared from his Mozillazine-hosted site.)

If I could only get Mozilla to build properly, I might be able to do something.

9:12 PM Offical Name

I have decided not to call them "French Fries" or "Freedom Fries". I declare that the offical name of strips of fried potato is "Chips".

9:06 PM I'm back

My weblog is no longer looking quite so blank. Need to watch the size of those logs now that XULPlanet is getting more traffic, I guess.

2:59 PM Peace and war

So, if a man can be arrested for wearing a peace shirt, what would happen if a prisoner in jail put on a pro-war shirt?

11:30 PM 99 things

Hmmm. It seems that in Russia, there are only 99 things Mozilla can do that IE cannot. Wonder what the 2 other things are, since I can't understand the text (despite apparently owning the copyright).
