Working at ActiveState was a lot of fun. It was interesting working on Komodo, and learning about the Mozilla code base.
I got to feed the useful mozilla fixes back upstream that was good. I got bug 107651 - Handle multiple file drops on mozilla (gtk build) using the text/uri-list target into the 0.9.6 release (which is not as useful as it could be, due to many mozilla dnd observers not being set up for multiple item drops).
I have a few other useful patches pending:
- bug 109798 - support multi item text/x-moz-url drags as text/uri-list on mozilla/gtk
- bug 69528 - support attaching multiple files at once via dnd
- bug 37685 - get postscript printing to use more than just Times
Hopefully some of these will get into 0.9.7.
The weather was great on the weekend. Went out kneeboarding with some friends. We put together a two metre tower high on the back of the boat built from two spars lashed together. It looked a bit dodgy, but it worked pretty well. It made getting up on the board a lot easier (it was my first time kneeboarding in over a year, and I was expecting to fall off almost immediately).
