ex machina

the mozilla blogger tool looks interesting. i installed the widget, but i can't figure out how to configure it. hi. ho.

as excuse to get my hands around xul, i've been working on a similar idea for awhile. i even got motivated enough to built a notepad application based on a tutorial from xulplanet, which doesn't appear to be online at the moment. using xul overlays provides a pretty powerful mechanism for 'ui reuse' - it's feasable to appropriate big chunks of the wysisyg composer that comes with mozilla. as with a bunch of my grand plans, it started to languish when i started having problems getting the xml-rpc interface to work correctly.

at some point i'll post a boatload of relevant links, but essential xul programming is a good place to start:

" A revolutionary new technology for the rapidly expanding world of e-commerce, XUL (XML User Interface Language) is an XML-based user interface language that gives Web developers control over all aspects of the Web interface. Featuring two tutorials on programming with XUL, this book shows developers how to use basic XUL elements to build a sample interface for an e-commerce site, then goes on to explore more sophisticated applications by creating an information portal inside an application. Readers will find expert tips and advice on how to get started writing XUL code as well as how to extend it into Java and other non-Netscape interfaces."

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
