Why Overlays are Cool

I recently discovered a very cool feature in winamp, that exploits overlays in the Win API. Winamp allows you to overlay a visualization to any color in your system. If you set the overlay color to the color of your desktop, you get the winamp visualization on your desktop! Try it out, its super cool, gives you a nice soothing animated desktop that jumps to your music.

XML to the rescue!

It seems that XML technology is developing quite well. I have been tracking the development of the Apache XML projects and MS's XML modules, and it seems like everyone is actually following standards. *shock* I believe in the standard so much, I have actually moved my entire webpage to XML. Btw, slashdot supports xml and rdf formats.
