I have any number of things that I ought
to be doing, many of which are fairly pressing, but what my brain really wants me to do is spend the rest of the afternoon learning to write XSLT stylesheets. This would solve no urgent need, but it would:
- Eliminate the need for me to trawl through an ugly XML file for certain necessary pieces of information that I'm referring to fairly frequently.
- Impress the hell out of my coworkers.
This is a nearly unbeatable combination of incentives, but I'm going to try to resist it on the grounds that being Useful is more important than being Really Clever.
