Re: Something altogether different?
> what a miserable place you live in. I live in a fantastic place. I write code all day and get paid well to do it. I also pay attention and try my best not to make comments on subject matter I havent researched. Through your response its obvious you have no desire to learn what MSN search is all about so why pretend to be some sort of expert on the "Gen1" technology you suggest it is living in? Generally speaking experts in any particular area are that way because they pay attention to all that is going on in a particular sector, research the data, use the products (all of them!), and then report back as to their findings. Simply put, if you are going to make statements of supposed fact that a particular technology is inferior to another you should be prepared to back up your claims with hard data. Do you have that data (that doesnt exist in the form of borderline cult-based opinion?) > ok so no > body is allowed to do anything that has even the slightest chance to move > things forward.. I certainly hope they are allowed to! If not this would invalidate my entire purpose for getting out of bed each day and spending another 18 hours building things that I believe will help our common goals of pushing XML to the next level of capability and power. And I can also make statements of fact that I have spent a considerable amount of time researching and studying the very specific areas of XML that have to do with searching, sorting, and weaving together common data that comes from disparate sources with no apparent connection other than (possibly) written in the same language. That doesnt necessarily make me an expert in this field of study but in reality very few people are as the standards in which this field is being built upon are still in various stages formalization. But if you are of the belief that Google simply gets it and MS (and others I assume since apparently you dont use any other search utility) is sitting idley by waiting for someone to throw them a bone I'm sorry David, but I will state it again... you're a damn fool and apparently could give a ----. To me this is the type of attitude that holds back innovation as it suggests comfort and satisfaction from whatever come froms the "holy land" as the true and everlasting gospel of search. Complaceny sets in while the rest of us push on... In looking at your statement again: > ok so no > body is allowed to do anything that has even the slightest chance to move > things forward.. Are you sure you even understand what you just said and how it contradicts your very own actions of sitting and praising allmighty Google and closing your eyes to anything else. Tell you what, you sit and praise your GoogleGod.... Im going to write some more code. Lets chat in five years and see the impact of each of our philosophies... FYI... I've already wasted enough valuable time on this thread and have no intention of playing the back and forth "my opinions better than your opinion" game all night long. As such please dont expect another response from me on this as I dont have time to waste on your silly religious beliefs. Go read a book or open up a magazine or something... it apparently might do you some good. On 4/24/05, David Lyon <david.lyon@c...> wrote: > On Mon, 25 Apr 2005 10:13 am, M.
