Freelance web design/development for a newbie - is this feasible?

I am planning to leave my current job in about a year, and hope to be able to make some money (I don't need a lot) by doing freelance web development/programming. While I have a bit of experience with programming and very basic web design ((X)HTML/CSS), this would pretty much be a new field for me. I guess I'm wondering - is this a realistic goal? And if so, what steps should I take to help me get there? [more inside]

Resources for creating a good, extensible file format

My team and I are writing a computer application for which aspects of the file format are very likely to change in future releases. The format is in XML. Does anyone know any resources on the web that lays down general principles about how to make a file format that is as extensible as possible for the future (and minimizes the possibility of cross-version breakage)?

Ummm, just curious

My two-year-old has begun to say "Ummm" when pausing and thinking about her next word. I find it very interesting (and cute), this little conversational tick. She has very few words overall, maybe a couple of hundred, and though often she just babbles, sometimes she really seems to be sorting out in her mind what she is going to say ("What do you want for breakfast?" leads to "Ummm - pause - banana!") So, ummm, I'm curious--did this arise naturally from her developing brain, or is she imitating something she heard? Do people speaking other languages say "Ummm?"
