I've moved into a new house for the summer. SBC has awful DSL & phone service. Speed and such is fine, but thinks keep breaking and when they fix it, they break something else.
Started internship at Gordon Food Service. Have learnt XSLT which is nice and useful, but quite verbose. Have also been using Apache Forrest which is a decent implementation of Cocoon (a very cool concept), but rough around the edges. Might just be because I was using the CVS version. No matter what though, their website needs some serious updating and little details and FAQs added to make the whole thing much more user-friendly. If only I didn't have so many ideas of my own, I might devote some time to giving it a facelift.
I've also been introduced into J2EE, JSP, and Struts. I'll have to look into the latter 2 as an improvement over my current cgi language of choice: PHP.
