status: week ending 11/27/2007

Note: This is an old post in a blog with a lot of posts. The world has changed, technologies have changed, and I've changed. It's likely this is out of date and not representative. Let me know if you think this is something that needs updating.

Short status this week....

I took Wednesday through Saturday off.

On Monday, I fiddled with my Windows build environment and finally got it working (again) on Tuesday. I was having problems getting fasttypes to compile. I was getting all kinds of errors when going through the boost stuff. After some skulking through Google results regarding boost compilation problems, I decided to try installing Visual Studio 7.1 without installing the service pack. That worked super--though I'm not entirely sure why. I updated the WindowsBuildDocs page with new urls and tried to break up the instructions into something that's more digestible.

I also continued to work on the Firefox patch.
