Spent sunday on the Pomona Historic home tour with my wife. We saw a number of homes in the neighborhood. They were all built anywhere between the late 1800's to the 1930's. It's depressing how well some of the homes were built then compared to how they're built now. (although there's a natural filtering effect -- many of the houses built badly simply haven't survived.

Today I'm working on my db normalization utilites a little more. I've gotten the ruby NQXML parser reading my userform xml docs. Next I need some way of rationally comparing field names to collect common fields. Eventually, I hope to be able to automagically translate these docs into html forms code, gtk gui code, command-line interface code. (which fits nicely with my chalice notes.)

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.
