I’ve started work on Firefox 2 documentation. There’s a central “Firefox 2.0 for developers” page as well as the first more in-depth article, “Creating OpenSearch plugins“. I’d appreciate any feedback on either of these — you can either edit the articles, or just email me your suggestions if you’re not the kind of person that likes to write stuff that, you know, people read.
In other news, after Charter came yesterday morning, I started up my network connection test program, and in the past 26 1/2 hours have lost only 155 packets, which places my packet loss at just about 0.9%. We’ve also had exactly zero total dropoffs. Packet loss has never been more than one per ping batch.
This is by far the best our connection has been in two months. I’m not ready yet to call it “fixed” but my hopes are starting to get up there.
They ran us a new line from the tap direct to the cable modem, and grounded that line to the cold water pipe, which is closer to the modem than the power box was, which is where code says it’s supposed to be grounded if at all possible. Unfortunately, the power box is on the far side of the house, which meant a long, roundabout route for the cable to run, resulting in a huge amount of signal loss.
I’ve got my fingers crossed…
