Confusing technologies

I've spent the last few weeks working on php, xml, xslt and ubuntu. I have got sick of ubuntu and not being able to install anything so I am working on my dell mini at the moment which is a lifesaver.

I've not been able to get xslt and php working anywhere except my live server so I have to be online to work on it, which is a pain.

I've been working on a letting site for a friend of mine in Norway and if I ever get it up and running I will put up the link.

I have learned some useful stuff though, like you need iso-8859-9 encoing on your xml to display norwegian characters.

I'm out of here before the battery goes

Hoop la like this blows my mind

I just read that Entropia the online game has been granted a licence to be a bank. Does that make any sense to you?

At first it made me feel unusual, but when I read there was over $400 million dollars worth of tansactions going on then I though that ain't a bad idea.

I think I should set up an online wold like that. Maybe Virtual I wonder would it work?

Some Action

The US law makers ar trying to put right what once went wrong by putting a tax of 90% on the bonuses of companies they have bailed out.

Now those bonuses should never have been paid in the first place, the ball was dropped but it is good to see them fixing it now.

The Irish government should take a leaf out of their book.

If the government bail you out you should have to play by their rules, or at leqst play by the rules. As for private companies not bailed out by the government, they should be allowed pay their staff and directors what they please.

Dwain Chambers is not evil

Dwain Chambers has been invited to run at the Golden League meeting in Berlin.

He broke the rules, but he has served his time and should be allowed back in the sport. They should make new rules going forward if they have such a problem with him.

I don't condone drug use or cheating, but I do promote second chances.

Good luck Dwain.

What I've been doing?

I've been very quiet lately and that is down to a few things. Lot's of work and I have been working on a few websites. I'm finishing up Magicman which is for a magician.

I'm also finishing up Neptune Outdoor Adventure Centre.

I have 2 or 3 more sites to work on over the next few weeks, it's good to have a few jobs coming in.
