Log of Developer Chat Online

Friday October 22nd, 1999

The Developer Chat with Rick Gessner is now online.

It's an interesting read, so be sure to check it out. Our next chat is with Mike Pinkerton on Friday, October 29th at 3:00pm PST (PST is GMT-0800). We'll be talking about "Mozilla and Mac - News, issues, and the 'Mozilla in the Mac' user-experience".

And that's before we even mention following the setings defined by the Appearance Manager ...

I'm starting to wish I had IRC. :-)
