Joel Bennett CCed me on an e-mail he sent to MSNBC regarding this story. I was kind of touched by the sentiments expressed by Joel and his friends and was also a bit amused because they were more mad about Scope being sidelined than I was <g> I guess you can’t really understand/see what I mean because you can’t see the contents of the e-mail but I wasn’t sure whether I wanted to post the whole e-mail here or not … Suffice it to say that Joel told off the people at MSNBC for being not really informed in their article and also told them that as far as he knew, Scope was the first browser to merge IE and Mozilla – thanks Joel 🙂

Sometimes I don’t pay attention to the documentation either :p I had read on Adam Lock’s Mozilla Control site that I had to register the Mozilla control (mozctl.dll) using the Mozctlx.dll but I forgot all about it! Or maybe that was an alternate way to register initially but they made it the default for Mozilla 0.9 since I see that he made the final update asking users to use Mozctlx.dll to register only on the 12th of April and that was after I had created the Mozilla lite distro for Mozilla 0.8 … I don’t really know anymore 🙂 Anyway, for all of the Mozilla 0.9 users out there, that’s the way to get Mozilla 0.9 to work with Scope – run regsvr32.exe and register Mozctlx.dll … as simple as that …

I did download Mozilla 0.9 source a couple of days ago but didn’t get around to compiling it till yesterday since I was working on something else which would also probably turn into an app that I will feature here though I probably won’t do anymore updating on it <g> This mystery app is simply a way for people to be able to print one or more HTML files from the command line 🙂 Somebody at work needed it for something they were doing and when I searched the web for a suitable utility, the only ones I was able to find were all shareware and so in my continuing quest to put all shareware authors out of business <vbg> I decided to write my own. Plus, the ones I found on the web wouldn’t handle CSS and the files that my colleague wanted to print contained style sheets – so I did need to write it 🙂 Anyway, I call the app WebPrint and will probably put it up sometime this weekend … if I don’t get run out of my home that is …

I live in a mobile home community (yeah, that’s a fancy way to say trailer park <vbg>) and they sent me a letter telling me to fix certain things around the place AND to pain my double-wide under penalty of legal action! I pay them rent for the land and I own the double-wide, who the heck are they to tell me what to do with my own home!! Sometimes, I just wanna dump all of this and go back to Sri Lanka where things are so much less hassle :p
