I haven’t blogged for a while. Things have been… well, busy. Between having the flu twice over the fall (which I did blog about), then pneumonia, then the crazy amount of writing I’m trying to get done for Firefox 3.6 (which may be a relatively small release, but given the compressed timeline is actually a lot of writing work to do very fast), things have been quite complicated.

On top of all that, right after Thanksgiving, my wife’s sister was diagnosed with inoperable brain cancer, and things have been upended around here while we try to help out with various things. That situation will continue to develop and be complicated for the foreseeable future.

Then last week, a close family friend (a very nice lady who was like a grandmother to me when we lived overseas) became seriously ill, and while that hasn’t resulted in any changes to what I need to do, it’s certainly been a distraction.

I’m doing my best to keep up under the circumstances; my apologies for any unanswered emails (I have plenty) or delayed documentation. Everything will get done… eventually.

All that said, we’re starting to get to the point where I’m reasonably happy with the state of the Firefox 3.6 documentation. Yes, there’s stuff left to write, but it’s getting to the point where it’s mostly relatively small (or obscure) stuff, and some “bonus” material that will help smooth out some rough spots.

Please do let me know if you see any issues in the documentation that need to be addressed, and I’ll see what I can do!

  1. Inoperable brain cancer? Yikes. I’ll make sure to keep her in my prayers.

  2. I hope both your wife’s sister and friend get better. Stay well yourself since it would be terrible if their illnesses took you out as well. Merry Christmas and may you have a much better New Year.
