Gmail backup

I use to email myself a lot of assignments so that I would have a backup of them. Today I decided that I’m going to use gmail for all my school work backup. I have a second gmail that I really only ever used for pokerroom.com. Since I’m not using that anymore, its now my backup space.

I email myself everything I do, and use it almost as a word processor, since it auto-saves everything. We’ll see how it goes. I don’t see why it won’t work at this point.

XML conversion

I need a way to convert a batch of XML files into one table, either into excel or something excel cam read (csv, tab delineated, etc). The XML files I have are from TI calculators and don’t seem to be in a standard format. I’m looking for any help. Here’s the XML in plain text:

<?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”UTF-8″?>
