Food for Thought

Topik - Disposable S/W
the konklusivepart is kiindoff wierd, sortoff breaks the flow.
and imm not really sure about this
In reality, a good software developer should be able to do just that — deliver a disposable, short lived product that addresses only the pressing needs of the moment, and then simply disappears. No maintenance, no enhancements, no song-and-dance, nothing. Similar to how my one-time business presentation required nothing more but to simply be consumed, and then thrown away. No fuss, no muss

no enhancements???

Moikrosoft Stratergy Again

Mikrosoft`s lookin for a new name for RSS n this is just another example of the kindoff business stratergy they use.
What many inventors, developers, and geekly thinkers in general don’t realize is that a name can really get in the way of consumer adoption.


For teh inexperienced Indians

WDFs - the new In thing

i just treated my eyes to about half a dozen web development frameworks, right from the raging RoR to its lesser known kompanions like Django n trails n even lesser known ones like seaSide n snails
first impressions would make me vote for Trails.
Update - another one spotted. Catalyst

Komments on Ruby - 2

It's worth noting here a major difference between Ruby and most other languages. In (say) Java, you'd find the absolute value of some number by calling a separate function and passing in that number. You might write

number = Math.abs(number) // Java code

In Ruby, the ability to determine an absolute value is built into numbers---they take care of the details internally. You simply send the message abs to a number object and let it do the work.

number = number.abs
this is intresting. the point here is that one cannot exklusively define all operations possible on the class number. what if tomm theres a new formatting option out. i think that the java filosofy was to have methods for funktionalities on the number klass that number should not be aware of. this is a design issue. it is always safer to have objekts handle operations on self on their own. on the other hand, having a kommon klass for simple operations as deskribed above might lead to a smaller memory map.

Komments on Ruby - 1

Ruby is a genuine Object Oriented Language
some years ago i remmember asking someone why C++ is not a fully OO lang n he said, 'coz in C++ yew kan do stuff without using objekts. ideally OO languages arent allowed to do that'. well, isnt that applikable to ruby too???

the Plain Truth

Frustrated By Apple

Cory Doctorow flushes out his frustration on Apple after news about the probability of future makintoshes using trusted komputing. here are some excerpts that give yew an idea about the level of frustration.
have a Mac tattooed on my right bicep, but this is a deal-breaker......... I've been an Apple user since 1979. I've owned dozens -- probably more than a hundred -- Macintoshes. When I worked in the private sector, I used to write purchase orders for about a quarter-million dollars' worth of Apple hardware every year. I've stuck with the machines over the years because the fit-and-finish of the OS and the generally kick-ass hardware made them the best choice for me. I've converted innumerable people to the Mac (most recently I got my grandmother's octogenarian boyfriend to pick up a Mac Mini, which he loves). Hell, I even bought half a dozen Newtons over the years.

n then
So that means that if Apple carries on down this path, I'm going to exercise my market power and switch away, and, for the first time since 1979, I won't use an Apple product as my main computer. I may even have my tattoo removed.

Ruby is promoting Meth


One of my fav topix very aptly summarized in this narration
It has stuck with me as an excellent illustration of the power of simplicity and the devil that is the human tendency toward complexity.
