Encapsulate the complexity, and advance the state of the art.

the whole html thing

html needs to die.


when TBL was huddled around his vic 20 thinking up http (which ultimately, for you becomes the web--not the internet) and he thought, hey, it's 1908 we have ridiculously limited bandwidth.. what if i made it stateless, what he did was bind us all to what has become the web.

it makes no sense today, with the pipes we have to be running stateless. none at all. maybe cnn, but even they can fuck off and buy more pipe. cheap bastards.

ive had it entirely with html. ive had it with multipage sessions. ive had it with a general lack of creative thought on the web--though it could be argued one must be increasingly creative (see typepad) to make good apps in the current incarnation of the web.

more to the point, i'm tired of creative genius being wasted on workarounds instead of advancements. it mirrors the current world politic too closely. i got into programming to get away from humans and politics, not to get closer to them.

and what is there to replace this. .net sorta. J2EE probably. flex? could happen.

what i know is this... you want great apps, we want to give them to you. maybe its time for a change with that in mind.

crossing fingers and losing at fifa

whenever a developer unlocks the door and lets users into an app.. even a simple app.. there is a period of anguish. will something be missed? will something be broken? will the users understand how to use it?

and so we cross our fingers when we do it and hope for the gods of development to deliver unto us wise and calm end users.

and my fingers, they be crossed.
next on the todo list...

I talked about this a way back: but i've decommissioned a number of my sattillite sites today.

all the content from them is being moved into the wiki, as i have time --which i have none of right now-- so there will be nothing lost.

i'm the ibm of weblogs. i expand, then contract, then expand, then contract. it's terribly boring.

i keep searching for that one combination that will put this shit in context. it doesn't exist yet, because i haven't wrote it yet.

in other news, i have been tirelessly riding this stat bike everyday. 10-15k everday. the effects of which are increase energy, my sleep is normalizing, and i just generally feel like a better ruzz.

you should get off your duff more too.

i have a project to complete, and a defense to complete, and an embolism to experience.

i was going to bitch about a bunch of aggrivating stuff. but, i'm not in whining mode right now--more like pushing through the shit mode.

they say "problems are not solved, they are lived through"

true story.

uhm. no.

i think, when i just boot up longhorn and it needs 600MB of ram without a single app open, maybe its too beta for ruzz.

so i'm back to xp sp2 and yeah. rebuilding is the worst kinda fun.

but, school of rock is fun.
despite it's misdirected message.

only 800000 more apps to install and lifes normal again.

in what should become a long series of retarded periods where i go offline, im going offline tonight to rebuild this machine one more time. this time, for kicks i'm installing longhorn to play with it, because there will be a period in a week and a half where i am offline again (connection) and i can rebuild it to xp then if i dont like it.

life, shes just full of gimp opportunities.
