Weekly Update for 17/05/2010

Enjoyed the long weekend in New York, which was my big goal for this week. I was out Friday and Monday—which also happened to be the first day for Ricky, a new Mozillian, and Josh, an intern.

Being in New York with my family was wonderful, and more than made up for the odious travel. Wandering around Prospect Park on a beautiful Sunday afternoon made me think of Seurat: if only it had been a little more pointillist. The only part of the trip that worked well in both directions, though, was Caltrain. On the way to the airport, I just happened to get on the same car as an old high school friend I hadn’t seen in 4 or 5 years (I went to high school 2200 miles from here). Bizarre.

On to the business part:

Last week

  • Put a lot of time into getting ready for Ricky and Josh. - Filing 2.1 and 2.2 bugs.
