Insert CFXMLParser rant here...

What the heck is the point of having a "kCFXMLParserReplacePhysicalEntities" flag if it's not supported? And what the heck is the point of having a freaking parser that isn't going to just convert the <'s to <'s? I don't get it. It's cdata! Just convert the damn thing. I'm trying to use Excelsior (see below) and it's not grabbing out the cdata correctly for some of my samples because of this "feature" of CFXMLParser. I know it's possible to work around, but for God's sake, why? It's supposed to just work.

For the most part Apple's APIs are just wonderful and magical to use (well, at least the api's I use), but this one has got me completely confused.

I got a suggestion from Byron to make my little rotating image to the right clickable, so you could see a bigger version of the image. So that's what I did. Then I went ahead and made a little script to pull out 25 random images and show thumbnails here. It's all fun.

Now I want to go take more pics.
