M.O.Z.I.L.L.A. (Don't any of you remember M.U.S.C.L.E.?)
Remember way way back, when the Communicator source was first released, didn't we all download the source and pour over it for weeks before some of us left it in disgust, and some in just boredom. This reminded me of all the good parts of that. I never did like C++, even though I was pretty proficient with it in college. That's a dirty secret, I'm sure Chris Baker will laugh for weeks. Communicator was a pretty good reason why I never programmed in it for a living.
Hacking around with RDF in Mozilla, and reading some of the docs, I'm reminded of a comment dnm made a while back: "Haven't we done this before? It was called Prolog". No, you had tools then. How can you be a rebel bad-ass if you have namby-pamby compilers that check syntax, man?
Back in that other world, Stacy and I were grabbing a bite to eat this afternoon when we stumbled across an open house: a 3-bedroom, 2 story with basement garage, deck and backyard. Only $955,000. Sheesh.
Pip Pip old chums, that's still less a million. And with two bathrooms even! Pure Luxury!
Sorry about that, I was bet that I wouldn't use "Pip pip, old chum" in a blog entry. Now that I've said it twice, I think I've safely won.
