Here’s a question based on a recent PHP bug report which shows why DOM is fun.

I’m using this example from the Skype Forum, but I get a COM exception of “Skype client is not installed.”
However, I do have Skype on my machine and I’m not the only one with this problem, so I don’t think I’m completely crazy.
Unfortunately, I don’t normally develop on Windows or Skype, so it’s very hard for me to debug the COM extension. If anyone has some pointers on where I should start, it would be very useful. Thanks!
I just found out we have a category called “Exonumia.” That was news to me, as I didn’t even know there was a word called exonumia.
You probably use exonumia on a regular basis, without even knowing. What is it? To quote Wikipedia:
Items such as bus tokens (transportation tokens), bar or pub tokens, and casino tokens or chips are some of the more common forms of exonumia.
We have a number of Exonumia subcategories. I think my favorite is “Transit Tokens”.
But “So-Called Dollars” is not a bad one, either.
I love eBay.
