n yew thought all browsers supported JavaScript

brain.delete[:JavaScript] if brain.has_key? :JavaScript
brain.delete[:javaScript] if brain.has_key? :javaScript
brain.delete[:java_script] if brain.has_key? :java_script
brain.delete[:javascript] if brain.has_key? :javascript
brain.delete[:JS] if brain.has_key? :JS
brain.delete[:js] if brain.has_key? :js

k. now we start afresh. first sun n netskape released something called JavaScript. n coz mikrosoft is an expert at kloning it introduced a 'roughly' compatible language kalled JScript. later JavaScript was submitted for standardization n thus it bekame ECMAScript. n now browsers are trying to bring in diversity in supporting different versions of ECMAScript either fully or partially.
  • Gekko n KHTML based browsers use JavaScript (ECMAScript-262 rev3) (mozilla n firefox klaim to partially support JavaScript 1.6)
  • IE uses JScript (ECMAScript-262 rev3)
  • Opera allows for ECMAScript-262 rev3 with both JavaScript n Jscript extensions
  • ASP.Net allows for JScript.Net (ECMAScript-262 rev3)
  • Flash uses ActionScript (ECMAScript-262 rev3). (ActionScript klaims to support spex that are still in early draft phases of ECMAScript; hence it is yet to be seen if they kan remain in synk)

LazloMail - Stumbling Blok

as i pointed out in one of my prev posts, lazlomail is fast n pretty easy to use. there seems to be one major stumbling blok though. the klient neither renders html by default nor provides for an option to do so. kummon growUp. most of the eMails i reccieve are html based. at first i thought this was a flash problem. mabbe html rendering was a no-no as that would require flash to replikate part of wht the browser also does. but a quik search lead me to this which left me wondering as in why they have not implemented html rendering ??

Monkey Do

now, this has been lying in m pending folder for way too long.
MonkeyDo by koncept is way too klassy. though it does disappointment one a lil after using it a lil. it doesnt do as much as it sounds as if it kan do. kumin bak to the koncept in general, an intresting question pops up. kan a skript or some kindoff psuedo-orakle pre-empt what someone would want to post on n what tags the user might wanna use based on his/ her webHabbits. and if that were possible, wouldnt the whole koncept of taggin bekome superfluous??

Lazlo goes a step ahead

Rich UI webApps are of 2 kinds -- AJAX based or flash based. or atleast that was what i thought. with lazlo going ahead n adding XMLHttpReq support, the line has bekome thinner.
btw, if yew look at lazlomail; its pretty good konsidering that its flash based. atleast far better than goowy

GroovY vs RubY {Closures} - II

Surprisingly while tryin to implement a simple closure example in ruby i overlooked a kouple of immensely helpful methods. with the excitement kooled down now, i present a simpler variant of the same.
class Array

def apply
collect! { |number| yield number }

a.apply { |i| i * i }
p a.to_s

Ruby's postulate
The accuracy of metadata is inversely proportional to the square of the distance between the data and the metadata.

HTTP's dictum
Thou shalt have no other gods before Me. Thou shalt not make unto thee a graven image, nor any manner of likeness, of any thing that is in heaven above.

To paraphrase the Matrix, XML guys don't even see the angle brackets anymore
they just see blonde, brunette, redhead

GroovY vs RubY {Closures}

I was looking at Groovy closures and i was just wondering how easy it would be to implement the same example in ruby. and this is what i came up with
class Array
def apply
each_index { |i| self.[]=(i, yield(self.[](i))) }
a.apply { |i| i*i }
p a.to_s

Unfortunately, it turned out to be a lot more skarier than i thought it would be.
make no mistake though, klosures ARE implemented equally, if not more, gracefully in ruby. the problem in this partikular kase is the fakt that [] and []= are methods in ruby. also note, i kant use each instead of each_index, as each does not synk the values of each individual array element bak to the original kopies. i think there should be an each! method. so now, since []= is a method i kannot kall [i]= direktly. i have to use the indirekt route of treating it as a setMethod(index, setValue)

RSS is Web 2.0 ??

Need to connect any service to another service on the Web (or anywhere else)? Trying to mash together data? Building supply chains? There is generally no need to ever ask anyone to stand up a new web service. Pull everything you need via its RSS feed. Some software developers will disagree with this and say there are better methods, but to this I point out: 1) RSS is robust enough that it's all you'll ever need nine times out of ten and 2) it's what you're going to offered automatically anyway, take it and get something done.

RSS creates the Web 2.0 information ecosystem by enabling interconnectedness, network effects, emergent behavior, and much more as well. And RSS doesn't demand control of the other end of the conversation. This is a big enabler all by itself and is a classic Web 2.0 force. By letting consumers of RSS use any tool or service they want on their side, barriers are eliminated and connectivity is encouraged.

i think this is stretchin RSS a lil bit too much. btw, a survey on what is web 2.0 based on RSS fares pretty low at 2.5%
