    The XML Conspiracy

    • 14 Comments
    I really shouldn't be telling you this. It will probably get me into a lot of trouble. Still, its not like a lot of people are reading this, so I might as well open up for once and tell you the straight scoop. XML was a hoax. This is real. Not many people...

    Reality Check

    • 8 Comments
    No Stargate tonight. They were all repeats of ones we had seen so Betsy and I played a hour of Neverwinter Nights instead. If you can't watch soldiers beating up on aliens on TV, the next best thing is to beat up on goblins yourself. We play cooperatively...

    Static Variables

    • 1 Comments
    I was feeling rather static today. Maybe its a cold coming on. Colds sometimes give me tunnel vision, or at least it feels that way, like I'm trapped inside my own head, my body controlled by remote. Somehow I'm both the controller and the controlled...

    The XML Pull

    • 7 Comments
    What's all the hubbub about Microsoft's XML patents? It's not as if the company is trying to patent XML itself. You'd think by all the noise being stirred up over it that Microsoft was trying to steal milk from babies. And believe me, they are not. In...

    I stopped by the post office this morning to mail out a small package. It was a few small collectible items that were being sent out as part of a trade with another person I had only met over the internet. There was no line to wait in, so that was lucky...

    Terminal Atrocity

    I'm sitting at home using VPN to connect into work. I'm downloading one of the later builds of whidbey and all of our source tree. It's going to take a long time. At least I'm not doing it manually, my home computer is talking to my work machine using...

    The Couch Trip

    Have you ever had one of those days where everything seemed to just go wrong? I have, but that day was not yesterday. It was one of the other kind. Not that everything went well, it just sorted of all worked out in spite of itself. AND it had nothing...

    Dragon Stank

    Dragon Storm, Saturday, SCI-FI channel: I want my two hours back. I sat through that rubish tonight. I had it recorded on TiVo. TiVo is great and all, and someday I'll write a glowing review and share all my wonderful experiences, but tonight the whole...

    Chaos Trees Reloaded

    • 1 Comments
    A reader pointed me to a bunch of reviews of Wolfram's book A New Kind of Science, that I was alluding to in my last post. Here it is in case anyone else is interested in checking out how tiny computer programs actually created the universe. http:...

    Chaos Trees

    • 1 Comments
    Have you ever done a lot of work writing code over tree based structures? I've been doing that a lot lately. It's kind of a habit now. It started years ago working on the .Net XML library, and it has progressed through various language development projects...
