As requested by Mauriat, I'm writing a blog entry to assess how well I've been able to version control "my life" (see original blog). The bottom line: I LOVE it. Subversion has really changed the way I work. Read the rest of this entry ...

Today I learned a bit about Microsoft's early attempt at a markup language for vector graphics: VML. I was surprised to find out that IE 5 and 6 both support it, yet (as far as I know) no one uses it on the web.

Well, I've decided it's high time to ramp down my coffee/caffeine habit until I've quit completely. It's something I decided to start doing in waves over the last couple years because my coffee habit usually gets out of control, I need to drink more and more to get the same perceived mental stimulation, and I start to feel discomfort/health side effects as a result of all that coffee. Anyway, the worst side effects of this ramping down period are caffeine headaches that I get mid-day. I tempered my headache today with a Coke at lunch. Already I'm starting to feel better overall though. Hopefully by end of week I'll be completely off the Brown Horse (not to be confused with the white horse!) and maybe by the fall/winter I'll kick the habit off again with a cup every day or three.
