New series: Today’s movie

In a preceding article (ChangeLog), I said that I might post more on different subjects than what I usually post. So as part of this perpetual opening initiative, I will soon start a new series called “Today’s movie“. In which I tell you about a movie I am about to watch, what I thought of it (for what it’s worth), why you should drop everything you are doing right now to see it, or not.

You may like this, or not.
And you may also flame in the comments if you don’t agree.
Well I hope you’ll like it though.

As for me it will be an opportunity to revisit movies I didn’t see in a while.

Small website and PluXml

I rewrote my personal website from scratch several months ago. My main goal was to avoid using any time consuming server-side scripts and database. I did this using a combination of XML and XSLT prepocessing along with a little bit Javascript. The original website was to contain a blog too that I finally did code two weeks ago. But then I took a step back and looked at my creation and ultimately decided that it wasn’t worth the change. 

Until I just found pluxml, it’s a nice little blog which use plain XML for its databases and although it still use PHP it’s good to see solutions that stand out from the eternal LAMP software bundle especially for embedded servers.
