Glutton for punishment...
I've just converted my home page to XHTML 1.0
Strict, and after getting myself accustomed to a few of the
simple, yet oh-so-annoying standards changes (lowercase
manditory for all tags? ye ghods), discovered that I was
getting a very colorfully-rendered XML source version of my
webpages displayed in the Internet
Explorer document window (the website renders as
expected in Mozilla).
Removing the <?xml ...?> opening tag seemed to fix the
problem, and it still renders correctly in Mozilla, but I
don't believe that's the correct fix. (Still, the W3C Validator seems to
think that's just fine, despite what the XHTML 1.0
specification says about it.) Overall, I'm happy with
the conversion, but I need to dig up a copy of Netscape 4.x
to see if it's still readable there too. ;-)
Another day, another interview. Interesting
company, very clear about what they're doing and where their
place in the market is, with apparently competant leadership
at the helm. I'm just not sure if this is the right place
for me right now; besides the fairly heavy travel component
to the job (it's a consulting company, so I could literally
end up working just about anywhere in the Chicagoland area),
they're really not doing anything I haven't done before. The
opportunity for gaining certifications is there, but that's
not really what I'm after.
Despite anyone's differences with the man, and
the desire to start an alternative IRC network to Open Projects, is it
really necessary to demonstrate the same level of maturity
that one is accusing lilo of (validity of
all arguments aside)? *sigh* Maybe I'm just getting old, but
it seems like even bastions of sanity like Advogato are being overrun
by the pre-teen "i wanna be a geek cuz itz c00l" crowd. I'm
seeing arguments like this springing up all over the
place lately. Is this an inevitable outcome of the
growth of a particular group of people?

Cool, I got the Bernie
spam too. I feel special.
