Mozilla Foundation Looking for Volunteers

This will may entail a few phone conversations, and we will assist where possible (especially in those cases where we have contacts). If you're interested, please send mail to blake AT cs DOT stanford DOT edu telling me a little bit about yourself and your background (if relevant). If you're fluent in languages other than English, please also mention that, as we definitely want a few non-English speakers on the team to help us capture international magazines. Thanks everyone!"

no, seriously. the printing is actually personally embarrassing.

i put firefox on some of our desktops, and the users liked it - until they tried to print something. then i get the "what an out-of-touch geek" look, and they go back to IE. if the basic features of the replacement don't work, they don't give a shit about the security aspects.

fix it. (cue the peanut gallery).

no, i can't fix it. but bug ibm or red hat or someone else who gets some market value out of this thing to fix this fundamental flaw, for chrissakes.
