Journal: Success!

Journal by ErisCalmsme

I am learning about XML Schemas and XSLT... and I finally got an xml document that can be validated by a (valid) schema that I wrote, and is transformed into xhtml by an xslt stylesheet I wrote. But why? ahhh...the big question. In time..... In time.....

(**note to self: this is a journal entry, the whole thing is a "note to self" isn't it? well basically?)
(***Note to self: sleep. right now. trust me, you need it.)

Journal: My first article submission

Journal by ErisCalmsme

Haha believe it or not I've never submitted a story to slashdot until about 10 minutes ago! I wonder if it will get posted? How cool would that be?! I wonder if my comment is gonna get modded down today? (I dont comment a lot, so it's somethin I wonder about) Or will I be lucky enough to have it left alone? Only time till tell! Hahaha I'm glad I can turn the comments off on my journal! Well it could be worse... I could be waiting to get the first post on a story? ;)

Journal: Why not?

Journal by ErisCalmsme

Well I've been reading slashdot for a few years now and I figure it's about time I take part in the community. I've been meta-moderating and taking the time to read people's comments, and have thus been granted the occasional 5 points to moderate here and there. This is a learning process for me... I got modded redundant yesterday for something I said in response to some SCO article... I didn't realize that what I said was bad... I even got a flame LOL some guy thinks I was lookin for a medal haha. Hey it's all good I guess if I had read the comments for all the SCO stories thus far I might have known better than to say what I did.

In any event... Lately I've had an hour or two of free time every day that I didn't know how to use. Don't want to waste it completely (although gxmame is great for that), but don't want to do anything *too* productive either;) alas I have this journal, which may or may not get much use... But hey it's here, so why not? =)

No amount of genius can overcome a preoccupation with detail.
