Stupid marketing flyer of the week comes from The Source by Circuit City, which used to be Raido Shack. On the laptop with the smallest screen and least memory they say Increased memory and larger screen is ideal for gaming and graphics; on a mouse, fel the precision with an optical mouse (all their mice shown are optical)... there's a memory stick shown with the caption SONY 512MB Memory Stick PRO is smaller than a stick of gum -- possibly, but the stick shown clearly says 256MB on it. Two adjacent cameras have captions, (1) 6MP digitcal camera has everything you need to capture your best shots and (2) Everything you need in 6MP digital camera. I'm not sure how those captions are supposed to help differentiate the products. Looks like maybe The Source isn't long for this world.

On a more positive note, some of my calligraphy was used on the front cover of an American current affairs magazine called Time, which is cool.

rmathew, I'm not sure I'd take Ian Hixie's rant quite as strongly as you seem to've done. With only a little care you can serve XHTML documents as text/html and use XML tools with them just fine; I suspect Ian Hixie doesn't use XML tools very much. Opera (where he worked until recently) was very much dragged kicking and screaming into a world in which XML support was a given, and they have only recently added client-side XSLT to their browser.

On the subject of renaming folders, it's worth putting a redirect into your .htaccess or apache.conf so that you don't break the Web. Well, so that you don't break your bit of it :-)
