The universe itself is constantly re-inventing everything that exists moment by moment. If you try to remain static you become a dinosaur.
My sin, which causes me to feel similar feelings to the ones which have obviously prompted this meditation, was to invent something new which is similar to many existing wheels but has about as much in common with them as those Tweels do to traditional Wheels.
I've reinvented Coldfusion they say...
It's just like Microsoft XAML still others mutter...
No I think it's more like lisp says another one...
The irony being at the end of the day all the thing really does is provide a different method of specifying perl sub-routine calls and allowing them to be embedded in other data.
So really I've reinvented the Perl subroutine declaration standard, and made it do new groovy things that it couldn't do before, without losing anything that it was previously capable of.
But it sucks, it's sh**, and it can't possibly work, so i t needs flushing down the toilet according one particularly "prophetic" priest.s/proph/path/
