  • Converting to PDF

Talked to elichak about the conversion between Wiki and PDF. She mentioned the fact that in order to convert Wikis into PDF, I would need to embed some code like PHP into the Wiki for the converting program to work. This theory of her's did make senes since due to the research I've done last week had the same results. If I were to automate the PDF conversion, I would have to talk to ACS since they own the code base for zenit. I don't think I'll be using that method. It's too much of a hassle. Since the document seems pretty short, I'm going to put it into the PDF manually.

  • I moved the November project news to an achieve.
  • Debugging XULRunner

I've went back to listen to the workshop Ben Smedberg gave about XULRunner. I jotted some notes about how he debugged XULRunner and plan to post that section up on the guide later in the week.
