Bill Joy of Sun Spreads Little Joy

And he managed to plug Jini and Java quite a bit as well, I see. I wish there was a transcript or audio file of the event.

By the way, Adam...

Excellent job on the npmozctl!

A few people in my neck of the woods have been whining about the UI wrapper included with Mozilla builds so I've been working on a little 'Communicator' style win32 wrapper for your control... it's coming along nicely... none of which would have been possible without the work you have done.
