Acquiring a good habit and breaking a bad habit

Have you ever made a New Year's Resolution to drop a bad habit, maybe to stop snacking on junk food or to stop biting your nails? Have you every made a similar resolution to pick up a good habit - flossing anyone? They're both hard to make stick. For some reason, blogging is the same way. I know it's the right thing to do, but it's hard for me to stick to a routine. Anyway, my apologies for taking a couple weeks off. I was totally burnt out after the PASS Summit in late September. So now I'm ready to get back into the habit. So here's a quick tip: If you just need a nice UI for editing XML, try the free new XML Notepad 2006 by Chris Lovett of Microsoft available at It's been improved over previous releases and I like it better than XMLSpy. Enjoy, -Ke
