pigiron Nonsense (391 comments)

HTML5 has all sorts of client side processing and XML is sent back and forth between servers and clients in a blizzard of unnecessary tags.

If REST is so fucking obvious why were so many web apps written that weren't RESTful?

pigiron Re:If you make this a proof of God... (590 comments)

These guys certainly have a strange definition of the word "nothing." How pray tell does nothing fluctuate?

pigiron Re:You think programming's bad? (391 comments)

On the contrary, sometimes a bottom up approach to a problem is the best method to discover all of the little nooks and crannies of incompleteness inherent in the specification. And believe me, ALL specifications are incomplete.

You critics are nothing but idiot rookies.

Vint Cerf: CS Programs Must Change To Adapt To Internet of Things

pigiron Re:Please correct me! (163 comments)

XML is based on the SGML printer control tag markup "language."

No $170,000 for you (which is low anyways if you are any good.)

Vint Cerf: CS Programs Must Change To Adapt To Internet of Things

pigiron Re:Please correct me! (163 comments)

Use of stored procedures should be enforced at all times. Nothing is worse than letting web hackers to attempt to use SQL. That they were stupid enough to use some overly complex klidge based in an old printer control codes is proof enough of they and their managements unsuitability for building systems.

Vint Cerf: CS Programs Must Change To Adapt To Internet of Things

pigiron Re:But why do we need the internet of things (163 comments)

None. and having your oven or stove turned on while you are not at home is downright dangerous.

I expect a wave of neo-Luddism to occur (at least as far as the internet is concerned) in response to these stupid idea that my alarm clock needs to be hooked into the internet. It may make adjusting clocks for daylight savings automatic (although this could be implemented with a ROM chip that included a future calendar although that could become obsolete if they change the dates yet again for daylight savings and is anyway not geared to individual jurisdictions that have unique or absent daylight savings calculations) but to be perfectly honest most folks on the heat when I am cold and turn it off when it gets warm enough.

Who wants a car that can be tracked by the insurance companies and authorities and also will have a heads up display with no spare parts and ability to be fixed in ten years time,

This brave new world of universal connectivity is going to be rejected by consumers who just want basic functionality at a cheap price.

How would you know? There has never been a programmer in all of history that never had a program fail to compile or never had a logic error in one of his modules.

That makes you a liar and a moron.

I'll agree to 100 as long as that includes DBA's, sysadmins, code librarians, QA testers, and project managers in addition to the actual system architects and/or programmers.

pigiron Re:Select vs Choose vs Create (391 comments)

"If you create a programming language through which to solve the needs of your scenario, then the article simply makes no sense at all any more."

Which you can do most easily in LISP.
