Canon EOS 300D finally arrived today. It’s a huge motherfucker, but it’s got all the bells and whistles I’ll ever need. One of the people I live with – I could mention names, add them all the Cast-section and tell you all about them, but I’ve not talked to them about it yet, so it’ll have to wait – has got a few lenses and some books on photography laying around, so tonight I’ve been reading a little about the basics. There are tons and tons of information about the art of photography on the web, but at the end of the day, nothing beats a book. I’m starting to get the hang of some basic theory, but it’ll take a while before I can use any of it properly in real life. Hopefully, I’ve not bought a $1,500 paper weight.
I’ve now implemented PHP Markdown with my CMS. Markdown is a text-to-HTML conversion tool for web writers. Markdown allows you to write using an easy-to-read, easy-to-write plain text format, then convert it to structurally valid XHTML. This means that I don’t have to use as much HTML when I write my entries.
This entry will be posted using PHP Markdown, and I’m a little curious to see if it works like it’s supposed to or not. If you see this and it doesn’t look like crap – more crap than it usually looks like, that is – it probably worked.
