ex machina

everybody doing it, so why i:
"K-Meleon is the Windows answer to Galeon. Thus, K-Meleon is a lite Web browser based on gecko (the mozilla rendering engine). It's fast, it has a light interface, and it is fully standards-compliant. To make it simple, K-Meleon could be considered as the unbloated Mozilla version for Windows."
snarky comments aside, kmeleon is interesting considering i was going to originally use this space to pass on a bit on why we might want to stop beating the lizard:
"There's more to the Lizard then meets the eye, but you have to take a look beyond the box -- or should I say browser?

Because much of the Mozilla effort's project management has been in the open, we can learn from this effort, and even apply many of the management techniques to our own efforts.

As just one example, if you work for a large shop, consider using internal newsgroups as a way for your own architecture teams to communicate with other developers -- this approach does work.

If nothing else, you can download and use Bugzilla, a sophisticated, free, bug tracking and reporting system.

As for the Mozilla platform: Take a moment to appreciate that the Mozilla development team has only been following the programming practices we've all been pushing for the last decade, and that the reusable component-based architecture is one we can all benefit from.

It's a better use of your time than beating the Lizard."

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
