Hmm, do I see someone talking about himself in the third person?

No, tk, you see someone who originally came to advogato.org to respond to someone else's childish games of slander. in the midst of protecting one's own name (that would be me), some other childish fellows ("tk" is the first example i can think of) saw it fit to try and polish his own tarnished name by adding his own fuel to the fire. i won't argue with you any further on this, tk, i expect you to react similarly.

Ishamael, YOU nosh the hell off

before you go ranting about me telling newcomers not to listen to certain folks, how about taking it upon yourself to do some investigating first?

if you want to believe the illogic and unbelievable, then you are most certainly not better than i am. perhaps i can help you out a bit here by referring you to tk site where he first put up a something, telling others to ignore me.

i am known as a very fair person, by both people on this site and off. who they are is not important to you, their opinion is. and, i like to keep it that way. you treat me like shit, you'll get it right back!

some people on this site seem more interested in starting brushfires than contributing to the open source community. that is all that i will say about it. unless, of course, someone else wishes to act like a baby, too. then, i will point out that person, too.

people i work with are kinda' like

some of the kiddies here. after finding out from someone else on here that LotR thought it would be adult-like to poke fun at my site and lilo's site, i got to thinking about the 30-50 year old children that i work with at work. they spend more time playing political games and harassing others than taking care of the customers. you know, like LotR does. he's the expert, he can tell you all about it :)

annoyances in life :

hmm... where do i start? the teacher who can't find a way to dial my number and explain why the grade I was supposed to get, wasn't? or this useless drivel of a diary entry : http://advogato .org/person/badvogato/? amazing, how one can just check the diary entries of one or two folks, and lo and behold some feels compelled to poke fun at you.

Well, if this hasn't been a busy night.

We just watched a great movie on television, called "The Crow". Now, I don't proclaim to be a Gothic fan or anything, but that was some movie. The storyline is great, the action rivals that of Jean Claude Van Damme and Clint Eastwood, and the potrayal of the Gothic movement is second to none.

I learned a valuable lesson today. That lesson is this: there will always be idiots in your life, both in everyday life and on the Internet. Yeah, go ahead and sue for libel. If you do, I'll lay down the hammer by suing for copyright infringement, slander and libel. Looks like another talk with my attourney is in order. Anyway, all those annoyances of life aside, some people will just never admit their wrongdoings. Not to save their soul.

So, I'll do the admirable thing: ignore the trolls and the liars and let them wallow in their own misery. I'm just going to use this site for what it was meant to be used for, unlike some others who like to start public battles on here. You know who you are.

jcv: sure that will get the response you want from Mr. Bill Gates, or was that to bait him? :) I'm definitely no operating system officiando myself, but i do know that there is much space wasted on machines now. all for what? so we can have longer file names?
Designing web applications

I have been asking around on the Internet about this. What is the better way to design a server-side web application? Page-to-Page or have all the pages embedded in one page? This has been an obstacle for me. Any input on this would be greatly appreciated.

ChipX86, I am asking for a genuine apology...

not some "I am sorry but I do not understand what I did wrong" cop-out. You very clearly know what you did that was malicious. Care to have me spell it out, again?

Why is it that you feel compelled to continue this shenanigan of "all you have to do is ask an OP politely" when you know very clearly that I did ask politely, but none of the OP's felt there was a need to respond to my request of being allowed to both sit in the channel AND participate in the conversation? Please explain.

Again, two of the deals to this agreement were that (a) you remove your past articles that mentioned my name or were about me; and (b) you apologize.

I have seen neither of those done, therefore I can only assume that you don't know the difference between right and wrong, treating people fairly and unfairly. Furthermore, I must assume that you know clearly that what you did was wrong.

Please explain to the rest of us how you translated a statment of protecting my rights "do not steal my photos again or I will take you to court" into a so-called threat. Are you telling me that if a police officer tells you "if I catch you speeding again, I will give you a ticket instead of a warning", that you feel the police officer were a troll or a threat to society? It's called the law ... and respect ... Christian. And, I pity you for your feeling that you have everything to lose by apologizing for what you did, and that instead you must try to sound like you are sorry while in the same breath telling yourself that you will never apologize.

Until I hear an apology from you this won't go away. Make it easy for all of us, Christian. Do the right thing. Apologize like you know what you are apologizing for. It isn't that difficult.

My apology to ChipX86

Until ChipX86 can learn to be a big boy and apologize for his actions, then I will not apologize for scolding him.

ChipX86, Let's Strike a Deal...Shall We?

Here's the deal:

+++ ChipX86
---apologize on advogato.org for your actions directed toward bytesplit
---delete all of your articles that were in reference to bytesplit on advogato.org ---permanently take my photo out of your possession and the possession of others (if you haven't already done so)

This will remove any of my anger and resentment held toward you. I have asked you to do some of this before, I am a very fair guy. This will enable us to wipe our slates clean with each other, and even if we don't care to cross each other's path again, will allow us to interact in the future as if nothing astray happened in the past. Okay?
