Code and Work
Started playing again with some XML tools. There have been a lot of cool ones coming out, since I last checked, to validate DTD/schemas and allow you to edit with a DTD restricting you. Tools such as Xeena, DDbE and some of David Megginson's additions to PSGML for XPointer. Also looks like PSGML is being shelved onto source forge with hopes others will contribute. I hope this doesn't mean I need to give up my trusty emacs.
Sablotron latest versions do not ./configure anymore on my FreeBSD 4.2-STABLE system because of the lack of ANSI C Wide Character support. Lots of talk on FreeBSD mailing lists, so I guess this will be done soon. There have been lots of code flying around including talks of integrating code from the CITRUS project or xpg4dl which got imported by NetBSD. I had some code off the list that I played with for a while, but figured I should probably downgrade for now to 0.44 of Sablotron till the wchar stuff gets integrated into FreeBSD 5.0-CURRENT.
Hit up just about every record shop that I know of in Downtown Berkeley over the weekend from Amoeba, Rasputin to Skills DJ Workshop. It was a pretty good run (read bad for my wallet.) and I got some Tilt, Christian West, Squaremeter, Clicks and Cuts and other stuff. Still kinda bummed I didn't pick up the new Cass: Cerebral Noodles EP (Really need to watch for is Fire Recordings stuff. Should be good.) Oh well, I got more chances to get things. My girlfriend got her Chicane fix from the Xtravaganza tab at Skills. It was pretty interesting to see her face light up with the fact they actually had a tab for one of her favorite labels.
I need to check out some the places in the Haight Area such as Frequency-8, BPM and others. I will doing some traveling between San Diego and San Francisco on a semi-regular basis (not like I haven't been), so it will be interesting to what the differences will be between Off the Record, CSL, Equinox and the Bay Area shops.
Anyways.. till next time.
