bytesplit: im not going to tell you to leave. please stay, the more the merrier. but i would ask, what do you get out of contributing here? all you seem to do is defend yourself or attack others? i mean, my diary entires arent incredibly worthwhile either, but at least they [usually] dont bring the rath of the community down upon me.

in other news, i rewrote my website [again] (ooh, look public plugging of a personal site, im cool like lilo!!!)

and im getting ready to release ishamp 0.4, after using it solidly for about two weeks, i think ive got all the bugs and 'features' worked out. woohoo.

well, goodness gracious. bytesplit do you think i would say something i didnt know the meaning of? apologies if i concluded you might not be familiar with less than mainstream british slang. thanks for the pep talk though dude, i feel like a changed man. i should be nice to everyone and less abrasive, and try to accomplish everything with endless polite debate and reason, just like youve done. take care :)

bytesplit: i sure will. can you tell me what it means? unless you do tell me who they are, their opinion means jack shit to me. and, btw, what are your contributes to the open source community?

if you dont start a few brushfires, how can you remove/destroy people/things you dont want? being polite? laughable.

BrandonTallent: how about "sensible c-based-language syntax" none of that applies to only PHP. furthermore, your 4 spaces rant is bullshit. read and learn from the master. furthermore, variable names should be descriptive. period. who cares what more you do. i use underscores, but i realize some people find the reach for that key to be a waste. functions, blah blah. arithmetic, blah blah. christ. im sorry. im just pissy and i think your diary was a waste of a large amount of space. why didnt you just tell people to go read the linux kernel coding guidelines or something.

lilo: to bring up a dying argument. "man. i wish i could be like lilo and advertise my personal site for free on a huge irc network." sorry, but i think thats incredibly bad taste.

bytesplit: you tell newcomers not to listen to tk or chipx86, when youve posted about 20 diaries. nosh the hell off. you think youre better than us? then dont waste your time with us. GO AWAY or something.

sorry all. as i said, im pissy and abrasive tonight. but i got my website back up (woohoo, im l33t like lilo: ishamael.tunkeymicket.com. and ive finished the next version of ishamp (which is now a total itunes knock off. hah.)

sigh. at least fejj is still sane.

finally got around to announcing ishamp 0.3 on freshmeat, and was hit with a few downloads, which is nice to see, i guess.

is it just me, or have a lot of the recent articles been simply mindless link propagation with little or no content for discussion?

goingware: it has got to be a hoax, look at the 4 Kidz page. even for fundamentalists thats a little over the top, i think.

christ on toast fejj this song is awesome, many thanks (and come by irc more often).

sigh, i bet i come off as a complete ass for my reply to shlomif's article. sorry. im not really, but... bleh.

well, it would appear the cssification has taken place. no complaints from me really (even though im a diehard ns4 advocate *grin*). im kinda disappointed to see yet another site go this route, despite the continued shaky support from a lot of browsers (ok, just the one that a *lot* of people use), but whatever.

in other news, lots of coding on various projects, but nothing.. substantial from any of them yet.

and on a more personal note, i am prolly going to fail most of my classes this semester. at least, it sure feels that way after the second round of tests (how stupid is 3 exams and a final in 3 of my 4 classes). sigh. oh well, i guess, im prolly transferring anyways. college is great, except for the whole school thing.
