New to IRC? Never tried it?

Do you shy away from IRC because it seems daunting, complicated, or completely foreign to you? A pretty large chunk of the Mozilla online community lives and breathes in IRC so I encourage you to come give it a(nother) try. I recently updated to help get you started. Hit me up with any questions here or find me as lsblakk in IRC :)

I'll re-visit the instructions soon to write about screen & irssi to keep a perpetual connection going in an attempt to make that option more accessible to folks who might feel it's too technical.

Where Are My $project-branch Nightly Builds?

Did you know that we don't build a fresh nightly on a branch unless there's fresh code?  Well, now you do!  In the interest of saving even _more_ resources and network bandwidth so that we can accommodate even  _more_ project branches we have added this little bit of logic to our nightly build scheduler.  It makes sense, right?  I mean, why have a nightly that is just like last night's nightly?

In other news, Ben just added 4 more twigs (aka Disposable Project Branches) for side project work and one of them is still available for booking.
