A new book for the wishlist

Ian Graham's forthcoming A Pattern Language for Web Usability looks like it will be an outstanding read.

I've found his XHTML 1.0 Language and Design Sourcebook to be one of best (X)HTML books ever written.

Thinking about Linux?

If you're thinking about giving Linux a try CNET has recently reviewed and compared Red Hat 8.0 and SuSE 8.1, giving the latter the slight edge in terms of ease of use.

Great XML resource

The latest issue of XML Journal include a CD with the content of every issue of XML-J ever published (30 issues worth -- 450 articles).

I usually find this mag too expensive to buy ($6.99 an issue), but getting the CD makes the current issue a steal.

If you're interested in XML pick it up!

Yahoo acquires Inktomi

In case you've been asleep today :)

Yahoo acquires Inktomi

You can read more about it here, here, here, here, here, and here.

One has to wonder is MSN will continue to use Inktomi results for its search.

This will certainly be an interesting story to follow.

Phoenix 0.5 is out

The 0.5 release of Phoenix came out this past week and I've found myself using it more and more.

If you've found yourself switching from Netscape to Mozilla for a less cluttered browser only to find that you'd like even less clutter, then I'd recommend checking this browser out.

Now if only I could magically convert all of my old table-based pages that break in Gecko-based browsers when certain DOCTYPES are used :) .
