From summer 2006 to summer 2007 i was reading and sometimes participating in LKML. I was quoted once on LWN[0], like that:

One remarked that "Coloring isn't useful. If it was, it would be implemented ~16 years ago."

That was very silly topic(more on that later).

But i'm going to share some real stuff. Main topics will be:

* userspace sucks * parsing, compilers, editors (that are suck) * building (which is suck) a program from the source code * and more (like HTML, XML, CSS, browsers, OSes suck)

I'm doing this writing in Firefox/win32. I tried lynx once, without success, so i forced to do spell checking in gmail by copy/paste. Also i cannot use jed and more accessible text editing.

For some reason every new paragraph's first line here in pre tag is shifted right. Crap, i thought pre should have no formatting, except damaged CSS.

Anyway, let's try first real posting, and see what will happen.
