    You're welcome. A change is in the air though, as SitePoint have approached us about doing something different with this and taking things to a new level. Stay tuned, for we should see something different next week.

    You're being very mysterious!

    I suspect that I'll be seeing you writing for SP

    I've read a couple of the articles now. Loved the Magic Circles.

    Regarding the SoftXMLCart... you would expect that they would have paid a bit more of attention to the design of their selling page! An interesting choice for learning purposes.
