haven't written because i have been insanely busy, and bad shit has been happening in my personal life. i am pretty excited about the PHP compiler.. i can't wait to try it out! i wonder if there will be any speed increases. also, mozilla seems to be coming along really nicely - it's certainly changed a bit since M3 8^) i'm looking forward to being able to finally develop for a single browser. HTML4 + CSS1 may not be perfect, but it's a start. btw, if you have not yet experienced the wonders of XML + XSLT, you don't know what you're missing out on. it makes life with PHP so much easier!
i got an e-mail back from Michael Hirsh (exec producer of The Dish) thanking me on behalf of Working Dog for my kind words of support. of course, it's going straight to the pool room. 8^)
if you actually bothered to read this, why not drop me an e-mail to say "hi"? i'm always interested to chat to other advogatans.
oh, and one last thing. there is nothing more aggravating than ordering the 5 disc set of redhat (2 x binary, 1 x powertools, 1 x docs) and being shipped a dud disc. now, taking good old murphy into account, which disc would be the broken one? of course, it was the first binary disc - the one you actually need to do anything remotely useful - like, say, installing the damn thing!. cough. i feel better now.
