TechTip: Parse XML Data Using jQuery, Part 2

Get data from external servers and Web services easily.

jan_jorgensenWritten by Jan Jorgensen

It's been a long time since I wrote Part 1 of this TechTip. I hope you've been eagerly looking forward to learning a bit more about jQuery and how to parse XML data using it.


Meanwhile, Rafael Victória-Pereira has done a marvelous job of covering the GeoNames Web services, so I encourage you to read his great tips (you can start here and work your way backward).

QuickLook: Rocket Software Servergraph Professional V6.2

For anyone whose backed up data couldn't be restored when needed, Servergraph Professional offers assurance that you will not suffer that experience—ever again.

Written by Rocket Software, Inc.

Servergraph Professional is an agentless Web-based backup reporting, alerting, and monitoring tool that identifies—and even prevents—missed backups while it finds wasted space, boosts performance, and improves the reliability of backup servers. It also can create compliance reports and, optionally, charge-back reports showing the relative costs of storage and data protection services. Servergraph identifies storage and backup problems before they affect operations.

One great thing about my job is that I get to speak to thousands of customers each year and discuss the issues they encounter automating, monitoring, and managing their servers. Often people are unaware they even have an issue because they don't know that anything better is available.
