I’m digging into some XML research tonight after a long day of usability sessions at the conference.
Microsoft’s XML resource center is quite extensive. You can also download their XML Notepad from there. It’s a very useful, but obstinate tool for working with and viewing the structure of XMLized files. I’m going to use it to edit Bump’s RSS files for the next few days.
There is an annotated version of the XML 1.0 spec at XML.Com
Builder.com has a good tip article on Dreamweaver. I am becoming increasingly impressed with Macromedia as they integrate their tools to work together. It presents quite a challenge to Adobe to produce. It’s the kind of competition that I always wanted to see in the page layout market.(I guess that may be finally happening now.)
I really have grown to like my Gateway FireAnt. Very light and fully functional. Now that I have Frontier 6.0 up and running on it too, I imagine that I will be using it more and more.
The Hamster Blast does exactly what I wanted the Hamster Dance to do. There are other alternatives(including a Pokemon page) at http://newgrounds.com/assassin/index.html
The Brain is cool.
I went to see the Matrix over the weekend. I thoroughly enjoyed this movie and highly recommend it. It’s the first cyberpunk movie since Bladerunner that I really liked. Great effects, but the key was a really good story.
I absorbed a lot of interesting links over the last few days, and I’ll be sure to report them as I work my way through them.
