Minutes of End of 2003 Online Chat.

The 2003 End of Year Online Chat did go on successfully, although no decision were made regarding rules in the forums, new SillyDog701 and new section - MozInfo701 were born.

Not many people joined. We have Mandrake, Profman, DJGM, Ramona, Edward, Wellander, Josh, Andrew T., WolfeDen3 and myself were there. Plus Al who showed up in the wrong channel that made the total of 11 people, our record high.

We started with Antony telling the history of SillyDog701. Then mentioned on what has happened this year, a lot of things, then the future plans. (I think I should write an article titled, SillyDog701 - Past, Present, and Future.) SillyDog701 did grow over those years, as well as the evolution of Netscape Browser Archive.

Then Antony revealed the future plan for SillyDog701, which is a whole new section now called MozInfo701, we discussed a bit then I show them this blog. Also, AntBlog701 - Antony's personal weblog. Of course I mentioned following slogan

Shortly, Antony's backdated entry - TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN - became a new topic. I told them exactly what happened.

Then we moved on to Wellander's 27 computers and the design of MozInfo701. We finially came out the name MozInfo701.

Thanks to those who joined our online chat. The new SillyDog701 was born at end of the chat.
Presenting the new SillyDog701. Not just another makeover, but more informative and easier to navigate, plus new structure.
Also, introducing MozInfo701, Mozilla Info Centre from SillyDog701.

AOL axes remaining Netscapers

MozillaZine and Ben Goodger reported that AOL laid off a few hundred people in California (Mountain View, San Francisco, San Diego) on Tuesday. Some of them were former Netscape engineers who had been reassigned to work elsewhere within AOL.

July this year, AOL dismissed Netscape developing department, and pulled the help to Mozilla Organisation.

Well, what a sad news.

Lord of the Rings, Part III premiere tonight

The Lord of the Rings - The Return of The King premiere tonight in Wellington, New Zealand.

The Lord of the Rings was filmed on location in New Zealand, the Return of the King is a multi-layered tale of the Hobbit Frodo and his bid to save the world by destroying a golden ring with magical powers.

Devotees of the film trilogy, based on J.R.R Tolkien's series of novels completed in 1955, spent thousands of dollars getting to New Zealand for the premiere and the opportunity to see the film before it opens elsewhere in the world.

Today is 1st of December, the first day of the last month of the year. Time goes by too fast. 2003 is about to end.
Okay, back to tpic, I have a few things to do.
1. write up an End of Year Review for SillyDog701
2. organise the End of Year Online Chat.
(Okay, the date has been decided, but need to send out emails to remind everybody)
3. Get this Blog system up.
4. Finish the Streamline 7.1 Japanese.
5. Put up the traffic, I know someone will remind me.
6. A whole new look for SillyDog701.

About this Movable Type, so far it is working fine for me.
But what am I going to use it for?
Start my blogging? or make it as a news system for SillyDog701?

And how am I going to integrate with rest of SillyDog701? Put it into front door ( )

The Netscape 7.1 Streamline Japanese. Yes, I promised Joji to get together the reminding English for translation. I've been lazy. My fault.
Currently, the Streamline 7.1 Japanese is working, but the installation dialogue and the downloading/information page are mixed with English and Japanese. It was because I wanted to add some more information, but I don't speak English.
