wxPython Cross Platform XP/Web Style Interfaces
While I generally HATE the Windows XP operating system, there is one feature that I really do like (although it is generally implemented in an incomprehensible manner), and that is the web-styled interface. Not the implementation mind you, but the idea. While I have been a user for a long time, and am used to hierarchical style GUI interfaces, I have noticed that many users prefer the XP style web-look interfaces, with their somewhat looser context dependance. I was playing with wxPython and it's wxHtmlWindow widget in an attempt to mimic the XP interface, and succeeded almost immediately. It is now a simple manner to generate a web interface that can still call internal procedures with ease, and is easily skinnable through external HTML files.....

Peter Drayton is back to blogging!!!!
I finally got myself back in gear since the weather here in the Northeast is going back to crap. I starting going to the gym again, I'm catching up on my Windows Off Topic Group reading, and I just setup SharpReader again (which by the way I can no longer run as non-admin). Much to my surprise when I opened SharpReader, I noticed Peter Drayton's blog is live again!!! I never deleted Peter's awesome blog from my aggregator after it went silent when he went to MS and I'm glad I didn't. Welcome back, Peter!

Nearly Round-Tripping
Well, it's nearly there. The PHP implementation now supports the generation of elements given only the URI (as opposed to supplying the namespace and local parts separately) which was the major blocker on getting this working. I've extended the spec to allow NodePaths to be specified in the rt:name attribute ...

SSH : Stoooopid Sharp Hacker logo
I stumbled over this page, announcing that now, hackers have their own official logo. Funny, isn't it? Imagine the case of a Perl monger who is an FSF enthusiast and works on an OpenBSD box. What a load of logos the guy has to put on his homepage ;-) Well, I tought that the .NET hackers may be jalous and would have their own logo too, so I quickly made this "Stoopid Sharp hacker" logo ;-) After all, why wouldn't we do some dumb things too, from times to times? BTW, this GIF file was hacked with MSPaint ;-)
