So I’m in the middle of a terrible housing crunch, where I’m trying my damnedest to find an apartment, and realizing that I’m not going to quite make June 1…what a mess.
So needless to say, I haven’t been blogging like I should.
But! In the world of couch-surfing which I am starting to enter, ‘nomadic computing’ lifestyles start to appeal. And what does that remind you of, eh?! Why, good ole’ NetServ or AppsLink or ShitThing or whatever the hell I last called it.
That plus a strong ‘disconnected mode’ piece as discussed elsewhere in this blog sounds intriguing, eh?
Or, I could just buy myself an iBook and be done with it. Which might be easier 🙂
The thing which makes me think about this, still, to this day, is that I’ve seen some – very few mind you, but some – applications which actually are better as web applications than as conventional ones. Just some, and just rarely. But it gets you to thinking – from an IT standpoint, web applications are infinitely superior – that we already know. But if from a usability and flexibility and power standpoint, if they are getting this good, then maybe _all_ development will be web applications? Who knows.
Having a way to make all of these nifty apps all be usable in concert with eachother certainly sounds nice…but, jeez, I can’t go and make the same goddamned thing again. ARGH.
C’mon – I mean really! Who writes the same stupid piece of software _over_and_over_again. Retards like me who are waiting for the Dryer to finish, that’s who. People who think their last pass at that windmill went badly just because of a particular patch of uneven ground, and that the next one will be better.
Well, hopefully this is simply exhaustion talking, and nomadicness (nomadicity?). I don’t have the strength to try and do the same thing again – at least, not without getting developers to sign up, first. Dammit.
