Sorry you didn't like it, I tried to be entertaining and there was a story that needed telling.

If it felt like rehashing to you, then just skip to the last chapter and click the links at the bottom.

Of course none of the paths has, or necessarily will, achieve market acceptance. However, this is due to the fact that none of the paths has reached a suitable state of completion, which should eventually occur if enough people put forth enough effort.

Lots and lots of thunder, yes. Follow the links and help us make it rain.

    I followed the links...and what I found was harder to understand than the original article. And much less entertaining!

    If I wanted to get involved, can point me to where I need to go to figure out what it is I'm seeing there? My degree is in engineering (and 30 years old) so I took the assembly language course, not the compiler writing course.

      GotToBTru: In what ways are you wanting to become involved? As a programmer? As a tester? As a financial supporter? :)
        Programming is what I do; testing is probably more in my immediate reach.

    OK, if there was something to tell and this is not just an exercise in writing fantasy, do tell the story in layman's terms for those that don't feel like wandering though the maze you've created.

    Enjoy the last years of Rome.

      Sorry it was confusing. The basic idea is that there are some promising new software projects, and this was a bit of a marketing piece to get people interested in working on something new and exciting and important.

      I can probably tell you the most about the RPerl project because that's the one I'm personally working on. It is a low-magic-Perl5 to C++ compiler and can give significant speed improvements, I've got 200x increase in my hand-compiled sorting code.

        Is that what it was? :-P My advice: stick to what you do well (programming). Let someone else handle the marketing.

        I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon stuffed with 16,000 zombies.
