Full Article Attached Mozilla Bug Week

Monday October 22nd, 2001

Many of you are familiar with the Bug Day's that we started a few years ago. Well, with the number of people wanting to help out skyrocketing these last few months, gerv@mozilla.org and others have decided that a bug week was in order. They'll be running it from Saturday October 27th to Sunday November 4th, and they'll have plenty of smart people on hand to help folks learn the bug system, learn how to use the various other web tools, and of course, learn some tips on how to contribute code to the Mozilla effort.

Arrrrr, yes ... Many years ago, it was, aye, a whole 1.8 years ago in fact. <http://mozillazine.org/talkback.html?article=954> When men were men, and bugs were plentiful ...

(Now they're even more plentiful!)

(Shush, you!)

... When it was really hard to find reported bugs, because the `world-class' Bugzilla interface was truly hideous to use ...

(It's still hideous to use!)

(Shut up!)

... Those good old days, when Mozilla's front end was written in XUL, JS, and CSS, instead of being written in `web technlogies' ...

(Sophist!)

(Gobbledygook-peddler!)

... When the standard response to any Mozilla problem was to create a new IRC channel for it (#jihad, #focus-hell, #goat) ...

(That's *still* the standard response! We have a perfectly good #qa channel for things like this, no need for a separate #bugweek channel!)

(Look, I've told you to shut up several times now, you really leave me with no alternative ... Now, what shall be my weapon of choice today? A cattle prod, a flamethrower, or a Netscape 6.0 CD?)
