Well, I'm back at it ... working on a XUL front end for a web-based MPOG
Devedge - XML Central; "Transforming XML: Netscape and XSLT"
Of interest: Xopus.org - "Xopus is a browser based in-place wysiwyg XML editor. ... Xopus uses XSLT stylesheets to transform the XML to user presentable HTML."
A little bird tells me the commercial version will be available quite soon.
The boys at blogspot have their hands full tonight, apparently! When I went to blog this, I got that hideous "system cannot find requested file".
Here's a new one, though (I don't assume you know weblogs.com's ping service, but do check it out): dig what I got when I tried the ping form: "Weblog that has been updated. Can't open named stream because TCP/IP error code 11001 - Host not found. (DNS error)."
Not ready for primetime ... *I wonder if I'll be able to publish!*
Accessing http://blogspot.blogger.com/ yields the following:
"Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a0005'
Invalid procedure call or argument: 'mid'
//functions/doAutoLogin.inc, line 15"
Oh! Well, scuze me! I thought I might be able to edit my blog! Sihly me!
*BTW, maybe one of you google-salaried wiz-dikz can figure out how to restore the two blocks of archives your system blew away?Oh-wooops, right ... it's free, so I should eat shit. Right. Sorry. I forgot."
Update: How lame is this: last month I couldn't blog or edit from NS4.8 *don't go there ... I have my reasons, and they're very good* Tonight, I cannot get past auto-login on Phoenix, but any other browser is fine.
The dweebs can't test before rolling out?! buncha lamers.
I almost got in touch with some of the folks I was working with back in '73 ... the sort of folks who are called upon to fake stuff about weapons of mass destruction and suchlike. Of course, back then, it was creating a case for knocking over Chile ... standard operation, involving the promotion of that fascist, Pinochet, and pumping him up til he found the balls to overthrow the Allende government. (Allende's government was elected, quite properly, but that sort of inconvenient detail can be overlooked by the likes of Kissinger and Nixon, just like with Rumsfeld and Bush. After all, we can't let actualities determine policy, can we ... that's for faggots, pansies, and transies, and commies, right?!!)
Anyhow, searching for Veteran Information Professionals for Sanity brought lotsa joy, but no contact. *big sigh ... somebody out there is going to understand my PTSD, someday ... I wonder if that'll happen before I'm fucking dead.*. But the assorted results from the permuted search phrase included this ... a nice big (I mean big) slab of quotes: Cool Quotes, compiled from Ex Libris
A question: if good and intelligent folks like yourself wilfully believe the crappy arguments put forward to substantiate the Bush / Rumsfeld / Horowitz cabal's claim that Iraq had WMD, doesn't that indicate that fascism is already in control of the USofA? No? No, of course not ... 2+2=3, 2+2=5, 2+2=17 ... whatever neo-con / neo-liberal / neo-realist greed requires it to be. And fuck the constitution. And fuck democracy. And fuck "the people". You've got mortgages and car-payments, right?
Ain't it funny ... coming up to 30 years since my brain shattered, and my insights on that fateful day have panned out to the finest stroke: I have needed to live in the company of cretinous cowards with whom honest and difficult discourse is strictly verboten.
Quick! Tell me something... I have $CDN45 to last me to the end of June ... tell me tell me do, why shouldn't I go buy a couple of bottles of scotch, just to relieve the pain for 2 or 3 days? (It's not that hard to answer, really it isn't; I've answered that a dozen times a month, every month of every year since 1973 ... but then I'm not a cretinous coward, so I have the advantage.
