I just had pretty much the worst week ever at work, which accounts for my not posting anything this week. How bad? I just finally noticed today that I didn't post my Monday Iron Lute post.

I can only hope this week is better. Unfortunately, it doesn't show any particular signs of improving, so posts may be slowed up this week too.

This week instead of continuing on with my outline series of posts, I think I may jump ahead and discuss the file format for my outline model, which is what I'm working on right now. Designing a file format to hold the data hasn't been too hard, but it's been a bit of a brain bender trying to figure out the best way to implement it. There are a few interesting things you can do with an outline structure you can't do with a conventional flat file, and I want to make sure that those things are possible. What day this will get posted, I don't know, since I still have to write it.
