Cascading Style Sheets
Wow. CSS. I know nothing of the sort. HTML, somewhat. I could never write any code w/o an editor, though. XHTML just seems like it might be a bit perverse, and .Net is most-likely not only perverse, but it’s closed-source also. Too bad Bill Gates has a lockdown on the Ford Motor Company as well, for I sure would like to get a new Ford some day. Probably like the .Net scandal, the Microsoft Sync technology in the Fords will become so ingrained and necessary in our daily lives that we won’t even realize how much we depend on it so. Friggin’ Microsoft .Net Framework, without you, my windows might not open correctly. Were that to happen, I would be lost, looking for a tech-support type to usher me through the steps i would need to take in order to download the “new” version of the problem. Oh well, what can we do? Of course that is both a rhetorical and non-rhetorical question, with varying levels of difficulty ascribed to each level of achievement as pertains to the various end-results which could be desired. Long story short, lazy geeks use Windows, but wish they were using Linux (though they might even still do, but only in passing). Regular people use Windows and do not know that open-source means freedom from talking paperclips (or whatever new fandangled tricks they have rolled out, for i am now two-versions behind…take that Clippy!). And smart affluent folks use Apple/Macintosh, which is probably the best choice yet. Only problem for those types, though, is the incessant need to upgrade their two-grand hardware because some guy named Jobs says to. I guess the jokes on me though, because they can afford to work into their spare-change fund such lavish expenses. Not only that, but at least MOST of Jobs products actually work, as opposed to the Windows conundrum of micromanaging for optimal-system-failure-prevention. So really, the jokes on us all, because I’m sittin’ here pouring my heart out into this surely-passing mode of communication while I drift further and further away from the truth, yet closer and closer to it all the while. I wonder if my user-name will be available in my next life, or if it will be locked due to my current use? Maybe I’ll write an algorithm that will allow for passwords to be recovered cross-dimensionally. So I guess that my point is, that even though regular people use windows, rich folks use Apple, and geeks use Linux, we are all stuck in the same technology suck hole as everyone else. But, penguins do have it better, though.
