I will not be reading the rest of this series.
Emery must survive basic training, become a soldier, and finally face the aliens in battle.
Some 4500 words after I decided to add a few comments and insights ... it’s a good idea to consider what happens when follow a handful rather simple and obvious rules of how to write code.
Eight hundred years have passed and Earth is nothing like they thought it would be.
… concerned not just with the packaging of data (syntax), but the simultaneous transmission of the meaning with the data (semantics).
HTML and CSS have very good semantic compatibility, often appearing together in the same document.
This is on my mind lately as I consider the compatibility of web application sources with microformats, while building a utility to help identify any aspects of the web application sources which interfere with the desired interoperability embodied by microformats.
I currently describe my pre-release project as: “A utility which checks webapp sources for compatibility with microformats semantics”. Based on the foregoing, I’m considering changing the description a little. At the end of the day, the work is the program that helps find the issues in the code. I’m hopeful that someone with greater comfort discussing the topic will help me to gain some confidence in how I present the program. So long as it is providing some useful and desired outcome, I’ll be working on it for awhile longer. Hopefully work to benefit more than myself!
… while attention may be paid to insuring that descriptions or attributes within a target message reflect those things most likely to be meaningful to the target receiver, very little, if any, consideration seems to go into possible interactions among those descriptions or attributes.
... the negative LHC results for popular speculative models are now in. What effect will these have on those who have devoted decades to studying such models?
All thanks to a quirky bit of software produced to alleviate the pain of a tiny subset of a very small audience.
