greetings (totally OT :) (whatever the T was)

Hello people. Dunno if anyone might remember me. I
think I had a very different email address.

I was subbed back in late 1999. I'm not sure how I can
help this org, but I'm keen to see a reflective os
built. I haven't much checked to see how it has
progressed.

I have thought of a way I might help you guys - I've
recently acquired skills in PHP and MySQL (well, I'm
acquiring them at this time really) and I can see that
your site might do with some vamping :0

If that is possible I am very keen to put in my 2c.
I've finally got myself a Linux box and I could test
stuff too.

If it is of any interest to anyone, I have also
started my own non-profit org recently too (plug plug)
If there's any people calling themselves (privately
presumably) magick practioners or chaos magicians I've
started up 'The Monastic Order of Chaos' and the
webpage is at www.monasticorderofchaos.net . I'm
hoping to secure the domain www.chaosorder.net though,
as it's much more memorable.

I'm glad I'm back online and in the stuff that I love
so much. My dreams of reflective OS stuff will not
die, so I'm back. I had ideas before, but they were
pretty half-arsed :0

Reflection-related job

hi,

The research-team I work for need a compiler-whiz with understanding
of reflective systems so I take my chances of the job being slightly
relevant to what people are interested in here.  If it's not ok
with job-info, I apologise.  If you're interested, please mail
me at stig <at> boblycat.com

""" 
Job description: 

Research-oriented company needs a compiler hacker to assist the
research-team with development and implementation of their compiler. The
research-team has already produced a working prototype, but needs a good
hacker to make the Real Thing possible.

The hacker is expected to work with a highly talented team to design and
implement the next-generation reflective compiler- and development
technology. The job requires understanding of virtual machines,
functional languages, MOPs, optimisation-techniques and ability to
actually hack the needed code.

In addition to design and programming of the compiler, the job involves
assisting application-developers working on development-tools. The
ability to work with an existing code-base without panicking is vital.
Self-initiative and ability to work in an active team is a key. The
candidate should have good verbal and written communication skills. A
work-permit in the EU is helpful.

Qualifications:

it's pretty quiet here...

Oh well. Perhaps this isn't where the action is.
 
It has occurred to me recently that although I possess the basics of programming skills, I'm not all that interested in actually doing development.
 
If anyone wants a sensitive eye to double check anything at all, I'm more than happy to help in the way that I am most capable - picking up errors.
 
Well, someone's got to do it don't they?
 
If I may add a comment to the discussion though:
 
Something that would make money for you guys and would improve things for everyone would be a kind of command line interface that learns people's peculiar ways of saying things.
 
I've been reading a lot at www.useit.org and in particular the 'anti-mac interface' section gives some interesting ideas about what computers need to do to be better.
 
The one that stands out that I think might be relevant to this list is the idea of a simple text-based interface that allows you to do things that the interface doesn't - like for example changing all files with a particular regexp or location and filetype to a different application or something like that.
 
It's a lofty goal you've got in mind, and I'm sure that you will achieve it, but this website has barely changed in two years and really needs an injection of funds (I love you libertarians, but let's get real) so that it can actually become important to the rest of the world. Let's find a practical and financially valuable contribution that we can make?
 
If this email offends don't hesitate to flame me. I can take it. If the list managing person is offended, then do take me off the list. I'm not interested in causing a fracas unless one is due.
 
whatever a fracas is (mess, irritation - whatever)
 
Anyway, I love what you guys are doing, so keep it up.

RE: Update on my situation

:: I should have made some replies concerning Tril's recent 
:: posts, but to be
:: honest I'm not sure what to add or how to respond helpfully. 
:: I am not the
:: majority of TUNES developers, nor do I seem to be like you in my
:: development philosophy. So consider me to be taking Jim 
:: Little's advice
:: for the moment to keep Arrow distinct from TUNES as a 
:: development program.
:: Since they are so close in semantic nature, I won't fork the Arrow
:: notices to another mailing list. However, I'm probably not going to
:: mention TUNES when going for research funding unless it 
:: seems that they
:: would support the idea. (Incidentally, the preliminary presentations
:: seemed to get some approval, so there is promise in this.)

its very quiet here nowadays. too quiet. since ive first read the tunes
site those ideas are maturing more and more and recenlty realized i get
sick when i code in C++ which is unfortunately my job... :|

so Brian what is the status of your work? is there anything on which we
can chew, i mean people without strong math background but willing to
play with a prelminary slate interpreter or whatever is the right name
for it.

:: So for a while, I can't contribute really to the discussions 
:: here. Please
:: give Tril and Fare your best input to make TUNES what it should be.

it gives me bad feelings that you are turning away from tunes at least
partially.

anyways, i think i cant add anything useful with this mail so i stop
here. but please send some update of your work if you feel appropiate.

bye,

- 101.
