Phillip Pearson - web + electronics notes

tech notes and web hackery from a new zealander who was vaguely useful on the web back in 2002 (see: python community server, the blogging ecosystem, the new zealand coffee review, the internet topic exchange).

Once you've typed in your details and clicked 'Send TrackBack ping', you'll get a bit of XML showing up in your browser. If it says <error>0</error>, it worked fine and you can now visit Rayners's site and see what you just typed. Enjoy!
