Catching up

My New Year's resolution was to write more, and specifically to blog more, but so far all of my writing has been internally focussed at my job.  So I shall have another go...

Speaking of New Year's, I spent a chunk of New Year's Eve getting The Colonial and State Records of North Carolina off the ground.  It's driven by the eXist XML database, of which I've grown rather fond.  XQuery has a lot of promise as a tool for digital humanists with large collections of XML.
