You pretentious little insignificant troll. Your sniveling creations are worth less than a protozoan’s waste!

      I tried about 30 times to start an account there. It wouldn't let me: pick a stronger password. Even with 20+ character passwords and numbers, mixed case, and punctuation. So, aXML aside, from here the site doesn't work. Also, if the password reminder note about email is to be taken literally, you've made the same security error a million devs before you have: storing plain text passwords.

        Others don't seem to be having that problem, but I will look into it. It's not a problem with aXML itself but rather a bug with the "batchvalidate" plugin. Since starting with Plack I've pretty much re-written the entire of aXML from scratch so there are bound to be a few bugs in there still.

        Thanks for the feedback.

      I don't recall anyone saying such things. What people have said boils down to two things, iirc:

      1. You're reinventing a wheel. Poorly. And thinking you've broken awesome new ground in the CS realm.
      2. Your crowing and self-aggrandizing are unmerited and irritating.
      The fact that you have stood up a web site using "aXML"* is not particularly suprising, neither is it particularly impressive.

      *You should consider using a different name. "XML" is a trademark of the W3C. Considering your "aXML" is in no way compliant with XML, they might not take kindly to your misuse of it.

        Then you either didn't see the post or you have very poor memory, because those comments were from user Plankton about 2 days ago.

        Addressing your two points one at a time;


        aXML is not like any other system I've ever seen so it's hardly fair to say that it's a reinvention of an existing wheel. Also, what makes you think the implementation is poor? The new version is very fast, and the old version has been in use on a couple of my sites for a long time and whilst it's too slow for a major site, the uptime and memory usage has always been great.

        As for new ground, yes indeed as you will see eventually when an aXML aware editor comes along, and the whole business of development and debugging is hugely streamlined by it.


        I have this really cool new invention that I want to share; what am I supposed to do? What would you do? At the end of the day, my apparent self-aggrandising happened because people incorrectly and without basis, judged my work to be worthless, forcing me to defend it. Also I was not allowed to walk away from the situation like I wanted to, so I had no choice but to either prove myself or accept a public permanent record of failure. So what would you do?

        I don't care if you find my actions irritating, I find being held hostage by this website irritating but I live with it.

        What would impress you? You want aXML to make you a cup of tea while your browsing? I submit your un-impressable and cynically jaundiced against something you don't understand and don't want to know about. (Your loss tbh)

        Finally, I have mentioned wanting to come up with a better name before because there is also a company out there using the name aXML, something I didn't find out until a long time after I had already been using the name for sometime. I asked for suggestions and got nothing but childish jokes, which according to my experience is just about par-for-the-course on this site.
