My personal transformation about templates
I'd like to take upon myself the challenge of writing a response to the three blog posts that Reg Braithwaite wants to see written.
The big problem with RDF
Every now and again, people get this big idea that we need every last bit of possible information machine encoded, to do various interesting yet completely vacuously defined tasks done. The first time around they called it "AI" but that died a nasty death in the eighties, so it keeps needing to come back under a new name. But it always comes back, because the basic idea of asking a computer a question... any question... and getting a useful answer is a powerful appeal.

Cost of porting vs. cost of continued development, Part II
How does using an older, less popular platform hurt your development efficiency?

On the semantic web, RDF, and other such things
It's coming up in both Rm and Photohub, and I've got some rants about it, so there's a few entries on tap about the Semantic web and RDF and the like. So, let this blog entry serve as a brief introduction where I try to at least introduce some of the terms.

New web content engine: Part 7
I made a few more modifications to Rm. I took it easy this weekend -- I've had a number of important design bits at work, so there wasn't much brain-juice left over for recreation this weekend. So there's a number of changes to Rm that aren't enabled yet.

Cost of porting vs. cost of continued development
I thought I'd take the occasion of OpenVMS turning 30 to share some thoughts about why I have OpenVMS experience on my resume and how you can avoid being stuck in OpenVMS.

New web content engine: Part 6
I've got a new version of Rm running on the site now. I hacked up media support, tags, and some random backend features.

When Apple will offer OS X on the PC
Every now and again people start talking about when Apple's going to release a version of OS X for the PC... I thought I'd write out my version of when I think it's likely to happen.

Gentoo was not a good idea
I'm kinda sick of Gentoo.
New web content engine: Part 5
I've got a new version of Rm installed, mostly with behind-the-scenes tweaks to let me do more things with it. I already like being able to go to the site and edit a page like a wiki. Plus, The site didn't die a nasty death when it started getting traffic.
New web content engine: Part 4
If you can read this, the new engine is live. One of my ex-cow-orkers was making fun of me that this would take over a year... and it did, although mostly because I stopped working on it for a while.
New web content engine: Part 3
I got distracted by a few big things in my life of late, so I put the code away for a while. Lately, because I've been wanting to change gears a little bit on my recreational coding, I went back and dusted off my code and took a fresh perspective on things.

New web content engine: Part 2
The code behind this weblog is starting to get a little moldy. I've been working on the replacement, lately. This is the second of many weblog entries describing my progress on writing it. It's been a while, because I haven't been working as quickly as I'd like.

On screwing around with Ruby and PostgreSQL
I spent a bunch of time this weekend screwing with Ruby and PostgreSQL. Warning: Extreme geek content follows!
