Rails and RIFE, Wars and Strife... It's All A Buncha To-do!! #

by why in cult

The bulk of the codeslinging is over at TheServerSide’s Bla-Bla announcement, so go there for your daily dose of wait-upwards-of-two-hours-for-a-rebuttal. And to think that the late-breaking machismo showcase revolves around checklists.

I went to Ta-da and made a list of my favorite beverages. I couldn’t believe it. They’re all perfectly in order. I was so astounded that I shoke with joy, perspired, and squeezed a miniature melon from my navel. (It even had a cute, little umbilical cord that I got to break off and use like a curly straw!)

But wait! See my list of movies I need to watch with alternate soundtracks is all lined up and ready. What a lovely and quite sobering surprise that Java can do sequential ordering as well. I thought J2EE just converted Java code into an Electrical Engineering degree. One-to-one. Like that. Ah, no, get informed. Java does a lot of the same stuff that other to-do platforms can do.

In fact, I hear that Java is 10x more stable. So when people are mobbing the to-do list’s servers, madly scrambling to get in, clawing at the screen to get their stuff checked off, Java won’t go down.

How crappy would that be if you had one last item on your list (“make a hot fudge sundae using only REAL breast milk”) and you finally got it done (you actually made a hot fudge sundae using only REAL breast milk) and you couldn’t get in to the servers to check it off?

You did it. You went and accomplished something amazing!! And your to-do list is buried in some corrupted MyISAM table under a stack of seized dispatch.cgi processes.

CGI. Heh. No way. Java has redundant servers.

_why, have I ever told you that you’re one of my internet heros?

He’s definitely one of my heroes too.

I especially like his super-sarcasm-ray. One blast of it from his melon-producing navel and you find yourself incapable of preventing a smirk and quizzically raised eyebrow.

I might never look at a sundae the same way ever. again.

A recommended addition to your movies to watch with alternate soundtracks list – the Wizard of Oz with Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon. For serious.

Same here. But I’ve yet to find a Chebyshev filter anywhere in the Java libs. What gives? Which libraries do they hide those in?

I like how TaDa is being criticized for not open-sourcing their commercial code… by people using Java, IIS and MS-SQL. Heh.

ceejayoz – at least they open-sourced the app itself.

My grandpa used to call this kind of thing “a pissing match between eunuchs.”
