[REBOL] Re: [RSL/UHURU discussion]

Aside from the most interesting things about the transcript, the second most interesting thing was demonstrated by: === Audience: What about Cisco? Their stuff has to be pretty reliable. Moore: I don't know what Cisco does. Audience: They make a lot of routers which basically support the Internet infrastructure. So nobody sees their software Moore: Is it complicated? Audience: I am sure it is. == Wow! No offense meant to Moore (I should be so lucky to have a quarter ("forth";) of his intellect), but this situation reminds me of Dante's Inferno, where the scientists need to have "flappers" continuously flapping them so that they remember to not constantly look up to the skys. The discussion does make some excellent points about learning programming, (re)using code, and about libraries. It also makes some interesting observations that run parallel to the discussions of late. I think my brain is starting to hurt from thinking too much. Think I'll do some painting (rooms, not pictures), mow the lawn, and maybe start hacking webserv or rebserver later today to manage longer posts. Sorry to hear about "the spill"; sounds like an awful mess. --Scott Jones
