Pill Popper

I didn't go to Starbucks this morning, instead I'm sitting on my couch at home and this only works half as well. I would like to have gone, but my current medicine for my tooth infection is such that I have to take a pill every 6 hours and I can't lie down for at least 30 minutes after that. This means I get, at most, 5.5 hours of sleep at a time.

This morning I finished off the blog entry I started yesterday on dealing with binary in JavaScript using standard components.

It was sad to find that the core XML HTTP component in both browsers will be unable to even download a binary file ... that would have made for a kick-ass PNG demo. Thus, another aspect of my deflate work is taken down a notch. I plan only to document the algorithm now, nothing more.
