I'm writing this quick entry as a desparate plea out there: Anyone who has an hour or two and knows some XUL-fu skills, can you please take a look at my FXPointer extension? This thing worked fine in Firefox 3.0, but unfortunately some change in Firefox 3.5 causes FXPointer to completely break the location bar. Every time I've tried to debug this problem, I've failed and I don't have a lot of time these days to work it out. Read the rest of this entry ...

This was my first experience as a conference organizer. It was fun. It was scary. It was too much work. Don't know if I'll do it again, but I certainly learned a lot.

I met a lot of people, almost all for the first time face-to-face. I listened to a lot of amazing talks. I missed too many talks because of the parallel tracks 🙁

Didn't connect with Webkit guys the way I would have liked, but did have some good meals with Opera and Mozilla folk. Great times. Wish there had been more time for shmoozing and geeking out.

I came away feeling pretty good about Microsoft and SVG. I felt even better about Google and SVG. Brad really came through for us in a lot of ways.

Apple who?

I also felt pretty good about the reception to some of my pet projects that I'm working on as part of my SVG Interest Group efforts: Scour and SVG-edit. Both of which were mentioned in several other talks before I even got a chance to talk about them. Hoping to have lots of progress to talk about next year...
