The OSU Open Source Lab has been good for open source. In my time there I learned about what makes open source tick, and that it’s not some mysterious cloud of elitist developers, but rather a group of people just like you and me who work hard everyday to keep things going and end up doing extraordinary things. Kind of reminds me of where I work now…
So it wasn’t hard to join the Rackathon and donate some bucks to help support all of the projects they host. It’s the least I can do. If you enjoy the projects they host, send some money their way and help support them.
Every little bit counts.
Interestingly enough, the issue I talked about in my post about how the Pac-10 Refs Blew It in the Oregon vs. Oklahoma contest came to its conclusion today ending up in a suspension for the entire officiating and instant replay crew.
I understand these guys were under a lot of pressure, but there is no excuse when you have instant replay. It becomes less of a judgment call and more of a controversy at that point.
Maybe we should investigate further? Maybe congress will hold an emergency session! They did it for steroids… idiots.
Games shouldn’t come down to this. Period.
addons.mozilla.org code will be frozen for both the public v2 pages and the developer control panel code, aka v1 while we work on our planned rewrite of both tools over the next month and a half.
Security or major, major bugs, of course, will be worked on, but for the most part we would like to focus on knocking this next version out of the park. Join us in #amo at irc.mozilla.org if you have questions about any outstanding bugs you think are of high importance, or if you want to discuss the next version.
Sometimes moving forward is the same thing as learning better habits.
