Working with plain ugly HTML

I’m currently doing some webdesign for the Shisha distributor we get our Al Fakher Shisha Tobacco for Agrabah. It started as a clone of the Al Fakher homepage. It’s just plain ugly HTML!!! I realy hate this copy’n’paste code after doing a good while of Ruby On Rails work… Even PHP is nicer…

The promised HL7 update

Well, I’m multitasking heavily between project. I told you about my HL7 explorations. That project is on hold for a few weeks (due to my oscommerce setup for Agrabah and other projects). But here’s the link to some interesting opensource medical software: Elexis. It contains some HL7 importers and helps me a lot to see an actual implementation. Another helpfull source is the ruby-hl7 library. More later…

osCommerce Tools available

I’m setting up an online store for oriental lifestyle products for Agrabah.

osCommerce is an opensource online store implementation. It’s implemented using PHP and there is a tonload of contributions available.

Most contributions are simple zip files containing additional or modified files. There’s a big problem when using multiple contributions modifying the same files. I’m using a distributed revision tool to merge those contributions. Here is the first release of some of the osc-tools

I’ll publish branches of those osCommerce contributions I’m using at the Agrabah Online Store.
