Calvin is a photography student at NYU's Tisch School and so I knew he would put the device to some creative use... and indeed he just posted a "How to" video on YouTube:

This video explains the most important XQuery Update Facility commands and demonstrates how easy it is to put the power of XQuery Update Facility to work for you:
The new XQuery Update Facility support is one of the many new features introduced in the new Altova version 2015 product line last week, which includes new versions of XMLSpy, MapForce, all the other MissionKit tools, and all Altova server products.

There are, of course, many ways to develop mobile solutions, and for external customer-facing apps the native platform approach or other multi-platform SDKs may make sense. But for in-house solutions the math just doesn't work. You need to be able to build these in a few days rather than weeks or months in order to stay on budget.

However, XBRL Table Linkbase is a fairly young specification, so not many published XBRL taxonomies include Table Linkbase definitions yet. Please see my previous blog post, where I have demonstrated how to add a Table Linkbase to an existing XBRL extension taxonomy.
Once we have a taxonomy with a Table Linkbase attached to it, we can then proceed to create some assertions or calculations using XBRL Formula Editor. In this video, I will demonstrate how to do this using a recent SEC filing as an example instance:

One of the cool new features in XMLSpy 2015 is the real-time XBRL Table Linkbase layout preview. The XBRL Table Linkbase specification provides a mechanism for taxonomy authors to define a tabular layout of facts. The resulting tables can be used for both presentation and data entry.
However, XBRL Table Linkbase is a fairly young specification, so not many published XBRL taxonomies include Table Linkbase definitions yet. This is where XMLSpy can greatly help: in this video I will give you a quick demonstration of how to add a Table Linkbase to an existing XBRL extension taxonomy, using an XBLR filing that was submitted to the SEC as an example:
Learn how the graphical XBRL Table Linkbase editor in XMLSpy makes it easy to define XBRL tables for the presentation of multi-dimensional XBRL data. You can determine whether your table produces the desired results in the real-time XBRL Table layout preview, which is new starting in XMLSpy 2015.

Since then I've occasionally received requests for the slides used in that webinar, and the slides are available on SlideShare now.
In addition, several people wanted to see and reuse the complete Python scripts that I demonstrated in the webinar, so I have now uploaded those and published them in a new GitHub repository:
These scripts are available under an Apache 2 license and require Python 3 as well as RaptorXML+XBRL Server installed on your machine. For more details, please see the README file published on GitHub.

At least in theory it should be. Back when I bought the machine I thought it would be a good idea to get the Apple RAID card and 4 drives with 2TB each and set them up in a RAID 5 array for data protection, giving me a total usable 5TB of disk space, which I set up as a 2TB boot drive and a 3TB drive for data.

That RAID card, however has been giving me nothing but trouble in those four years, and it got so bad this summer that it was time for a radical move: RAIDectomy!

This week the Moto 360 became available and sold out in record time. Next week Apple is rumored to introduce their iWatch along with the next generation iPhone. And Samsung just announced their next generation Gear watch last week that is expected to ship at the same time as the Galaxy Note Edge.
It is clear that Wearables hold a lot of excitement and a lot of promise, and obviously capture people’s imagination. But let’s pause for a moment first, and talk about past experiences with Wearables:
