I've decided to retire this blog — I don't really see myself updating it any time soon, and haven't for over two years anyway. I intend to leave the content on-line for the forseeable future, but have converted it to a static site. As a result, dynamic things like search and comments aren't really going to work.

You can find me on Twitter or on Google+ if you like. Alternatively, I'm usually on IRC as LawnGnome on Freenode.

Thanks for reading!

A Million Monkeys…

Note to everyone posting on Mozilla bug 18574 (restore support for MNG animation format and JNG image format): it’s time to get over it. The Mozilla/Firefox drivers have once again made their decision (which I’m convinced is the wrong one made for the wrong reasons, but hey, nobody’s perfect), and I for one could do without the endless, circular arguments that have been filling up my inbox today. Take it to the MozillaZine topic in the URL field, for crying out loud.

Still, I think this does highlight a major flaw in the Firefox development structure: the wishes of users are generally completely ignored. This isn’t the first time this has happened, and won’t be the last. I just hope it never gets to the point where I drop the browser again and switch back to Konqueror.

(And yes, I’ve removed myself from the CC list. No, I don’t have the motivation to maintain my own fork of Firefox. Yes, that makes me a whiner. No, I don’t care. :)
