I'm going into the last day of a week long XML course at work. The class has been great, despite being completely Microsoft-centric. Despite this, the instructor has done a good job of covering the topics and inspiring many possible projects in my head. Most of these projects are for the day job and will focus mainly on XSL transformations of training manuals. So, my challenge was to get an XSL parser that works with PHP. A buddy at work informed me that I'd need Sablotron to do XSL with PHP.
I just finished poking around in the blogging client ecto and liked it so much that I purchased a license. It's interface is uncluttered, relatively intuitive, and the clincher was the price--just $17.95 vs. MarsEdit's price tag of $24.95. Those windows users reading this can consider Ecto as your blogging client too.
Okay, when I first started this blogging thing, I really only had a toe in the water. I don't post very often and have kept the posts to family-related announcements. Well, in an effort to add more useless stuff to the world-wide web I'm going to try using a couple of blog clients on my desktop in an effort to write more often. I know, it's not the tool, it's he who wields it.
