Blog?

hartsock BLOG - I hate that stupid word. (331 comments)

I don't have a Bean Log, or a Bare Log, Bone Log, Big Log, Bleary Log, Bunny Log, Bonny Log, nor a Birdie Log. I might have an Online Journal, Personal Web Site, Home Page, Personal Page, Web Page, or even a Web Log. I do not, do not, do not have a we-Blog. It is a Web not a weB or a Bew and it's a Journal not a Log.

BLog is a term invented by an internet startup to sell software. I hate the word Blog just like I hate the words Kleenex, Whopper, Gordita, and Dorito.

Keep repeating to yourself: "Microsoft is guilty."

Remember, MicroSoft has been found GUILTY. Don't forget it. The issue is just the punishment. Personally I don't see why the court doesn't just opensource the whole MS Operating System Code base. Let them keep their applications on every level (including MS IE) and just Open Source an agreed upon "Operating System".

We could even compromise and make it Windows 95 that was open sourced or maybe Windows NT 4? Pick one, Windows CE maybe? Just one MS OS open sourced... no applications included (not even notepad) and that would be plenty good.

Wouldn't even hurt them that bad really, they'd still have MS Office, MS IE, MSN, Windows XP ect.

Private Contracts

hartsock hartsock writes  |  more than 11 years ago

Tuesday I'll find out if my proposal goes through. If I get it I'll have three weeks worth of work on a product I will be allowed to keep lic. rights for. I will be able to resell the product to other companies for reuse use on their own internet and intranet sites.

I would like to opensource the project to try and get more exposure. I don't see how to do this without essentially shooting myself in the foot. I read the article on "SleepyCat" and I would love to have a business model just like that. I can't see how to do it with essentially end-user-products which is what I make.

What's a poor PERL 5 programmer to do?

Today my Karma went up 4 points because I made an inane remark about a cue cat. But I also tried to make an insightful comment about software engineering practices. Did anyone notice the serious comment about software engineering? no... they loved the comment about using the cue cat for a door stop! Such is life.
