Journal skadus's Journal: XML Wishlist... Thingy...

Had an idea recently... Basically, I'd make a simple XML database to replace wishlists online.

Instead of having like 15 wishlists on 15 different sites, some of which die after awhile or are linked to a specific computer, the XML file would have a few simple classifications, and a URL to the item online. The XML would be hosted online... well... somewhere... and I could format it so it's not too ugly.


  • PHP or ASP or some kind of web code to append the XML file with new entries.
  • Code like at the List of Linux Live CDs to filter/sort the list. Like, say I want to only show the Gamecube games listed. Click. Boom. Done.

Now if only I knew how to implement such a thing. :p
