From: Karl Boyken Date: Fri Jun 27, 2003 8:55 am Subject: Re: Re: PJ Sessions list, Groups kboyken Ah, coding by hand! Brings a tear to my eye. Now, if you tell me you use a text-based editor like vi and not some gui-fied fluffed-up obscenely obese monstrosity like Word, I'll probably be divorcing my wife and asking you to marry me. Karl ------------------ Word!?! What kind of bongobrain would use Word to code in?? Don't scare me like that. I use plain ol' TextPad. You're safe though. I am already married, though my husband lives in Canada (far away as he could get on one plane ticket). He visits a few times a year for a couple weeks to see the kid (I agree to forego child support in exchange for this, so she'll have a dad), and we get along fine but have a refresher course in why we are living half a continent away from each other and are still darn glad about it. ;-) We still work together somewhat, as I've hired him as a contractor on several projects, probably as I really enjoy the sheer misery his passive/aggressive behavior creates in my life or something like that, sigh. Or maybe I really enjoy still being able to nag him, LOL. Tidbit: programming is apparently a subversively useful "language" to learn if you want to betray your government by escaping their oppression. The gov't of Czechoslovakia put him through an accelerated plan to learn programming as they desperately needed programmers (Cobol and C and several other things -- back in the punch card days!). He learned everything he could, knowing a computer language could get him work in any country. Then he promptly used his black market jewelry & art money (he's an artist) to buy some cool mostly forbidden (black market) books on ufology and psi, and traded these to an interested border guard for a moment looking aside so he could escape. Backpacked across Europe with his first wife and after 6 months at an italian refuge camp, settled in Canada. The gov't was really pissed that after all their effort he escaped just a few months later. They'd been watching him, as his sister escaped 5 years previous. He's an identical twin, and they'd been in college when his dad, an intelligence officer in the Czech branch of the soviet Army, was tossed out for 'not being a good enough communist'. So they were both thrown out of college together, and became the untouchables for awhile and he decided he had to leave, lucky for him got that training opp! It's so cool that the wall fell and that part of the world is finally free. I actually sat on the floor and cried when all that was on the news. Anyway I'm not a 'real' programmer, just a project manager forced into a coding role as my primary client hasn't the money for me to delegate myself out of it, and I use ColdFusion, which most trained monkeys with a reference manual can use (that's me!). So don't take me too seriously. ;-) I'm getting better at it though. I've programmed a pretty complex educational website used by colleges around the country (for statistics). I'm such a fairy sometimes though, I look at my OWN code in pages and think, "Wow. That looks really hard. I don't think I could ever really understand that." LOL. If I did it more than six months ago and it's remotely complex, I have to learn it all over again. ;-) (Alzheimer's advantage: new friends every day!) PJ Reply | Forward

I once found an old report on our server and thought "Wow! wish I could do that"....only to find out it was one of mine :-). Yup...new friends every day. LOL! Incidentally, how many RVers out there do computer-based stuff as a living? Interesting. Glyn You said: > I'm getting better at it though.

From: "etuthill_engineer" Date: Sun Jun 29, 2003 12:25 pm Subject: Re: PJ Sessions list, Groups etuthill_eng... Hey Glyn/all > Incidentally, how many RVers out there do > computer-based stuff as a living? > Interesting. Thats an interesting question. It seems, from my point of view, that most of the RVers I know have at least one foot in the techie pool... I met my mentor as he was working for a project I was managing, which was testing high speed backbone routers and switches. He introduced me to all that is RV. Very dry high tech stuff, not as fun as the web design which has a much more creative element to it, IMO. And yup, we both were unemployed post-layoff as well, myself longer than him (6 months). Heh heh, I took advantage of my layoff by hitting TMI gateway cds almost every day, and learning as much rv protocol as I could. Now I am working again at more of an html/app based company, and my officemate, the guy who pushed for me to get hired, has a very extensive history in the spiritual arts. That is to say, meditation, astral projection and the like. He mentioned something about it one day, and I asked him if he knew anything about RV. He hadnt heard of it, but when I explained it (loosely) he said, "Oh! You mean projecting your awareness! Yeah, my Dad taught me how to do that." Wow. Here I am just getting into this stuff, heh heh. Gotta start somewhere. On an off topic, maybe, I mentioned to PJ the other day, I just don't believe in things happening "by chance" anymore. The odds just don't suit my wierd life and frequent coincedences. Maybe so many RVers are drawn to similar hobbies so as to facilitate thier meeting? Theres an odd theory for the day...

From: "Nita Hickok" Date: Fri Jun 27, 2003 8:16 pm Subject: Re: Re: PJ Sessions list, Groups nitahickok Hello PJ I have been studying Macromedia Dreamweaver MX. I had a copy sent to me for my website. It has cold fusion included but unfortunately I am not up to the trained monkey level yet. I will have to get a reference book. You are doing good. Nita ------------------- Thanks Nita. I used to use DW many eons ago when I was in a corp group environ. I vastly prefer handcoding now though. Learning to push buttons melts my memory when I later need the real code, and always arranges the code so when I look at the file to fix something it's like 2 freakin miles long, what a pain!

From: Karl Boyken Date: Sat Jun 28, 2003 12:00 pm Subject: Re: Re: PJ Sessions list, Groups kboyken We don't do any dynamic web stuff in my shop. Well, I guess we are using PHP now for webmail, but that's a turnkey package. I've written maybe two CGI Perl scripts in my life, but we turned them off long ago. I do write my HTML by hand, in vi. I'm a troglodyte. I used to work with a woman whose husband lived on one of the coasts. They'd get together once a year. The wife of the former department chair where I work lives about six hours north of here. What's that song, "I need a lover who won't drive me crazy, someone who knows the meaning of, 'Hey, hit the highway.'" With the job market here being the way it is, and the terrorism paranoia, I don't know whether your husband would have as easy a time of it today. A friend of mine, a former co-worker sysadmin, is on unemployment now. I never thought I'd see the day where competent, experienced sysadmins were drawing unemployment. Karl ------------------------- Yeah, I know. When I began my current job, I'd intended to HIRE a CF programmer, and remain project manager (mgmt is my primary trade, in a variety of formats). I couldn't find anyone to help me, for lots of pay doing p/t work from their own home, it was ridiculous. This was end of '99 early '00. So I had to teach myself, geez, I am NOT a programmer/techie personality (my personality has really suffered from the work). I can DO it but it's that jack of all trades thing. By 2002, most expert CF people couldn't get arrested. Unfortunately by then I hadn't the money AND had no need to delegate as I'd figured it out by then. ;-) The job market is pretty bad for tech for some reason. It seems odd, we have massive green card quotas to bring techs in from india and many other countries, because allegedly we haven't got the people here in country, but you could have fooled me--I see plenty of them and most of them are hungry.

But if it is true then all the RV activity now going on is USING UP all the potential psychic ability out there so we had better put a stop to it!...G Bill -------------------- Omigosh! That's hilarious! Karl he's got a point--same logic you're using there, LOL! Now every time I view, I'll be stealing psi from some poor sap who'll have NO IDEA that train is coming. ROFL!

From: Karl Boyken Date: Sun Jun 29, 2003 10:52 am Subject: Re: Re: PJ Sessions list, Groups kboyken The Indian software industry is large and steadily growing. Very few US citizens pursue a CS degree beyond a BS. The grad students here in the CS department I work for are primarily (I'd say 80%, maybe even 90%) Indian and Chinese. We're exporting our expertise. I'm not sure, but I suspect that it's becoming cheaper to export projects overseas, too. Karl > The job market is pretty bad for tech for some reason.

From: "Nita Hickok" Date: Sun Jun 29, 2003 11:20 pm Subject: Re: Re: PJ Sessions list, Groups nitahickok Hi Fortune I had my husband tell me-You don't know how to iron the first month we were together. He was really arrogant about it. I opened my mouth to tell him I was the best person at ironing in my whole family. I was the only one that did it for everyone. I then had a little voice say to me-You fool-shut up that way he will do all the ironing. I consider it my guardian angel and am happy I listened to it. It took him 5 years to find out I knew how to iron. Nita --------------------- Must be a method innate to all women. Lu cooked off and on for five years and I don't think he ever knew I knew anything about it. :-) PJ Reply | Forward

They are also easier in the demands dept...less com-laints...or I imagine health care...Lots easier for the corporations...
