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.
