"I came here years ago"

So did I, infact I think I first started trying to explain what I was upto way back in 2007. Since then I have made huge advancements in the efficiency of my own private implementation of the system, and in all that time I have yet to find any problem which has no elegant solution using the simple rules.

I don't know how many times I have to say it before it sinks in, but I will try once again;

I'm not trying to plug a framework, or a proprietary language, or a module. I am talking about another level of abstraction above the code which is unprecedented in all of existing modules and systems I have looked into. Having worked for years on it, and having deployed many sites using it, I absolutely REFUSE to use anything less.

I'm sharing a quantum leap forwards and I get attitude from dimwitted backwards looking low brow coders who don't get it and would rather bitch and moan about my attitude.

    Even if you are the one in the right (who am I to doubt that, as I don't use anything close to what you are talking about, so why should I care), sharing a thought is something quite different than sharing code/examples, so others can judge on actual "stuff". When you are talking about a level of abstraction, it is quite possible this stays very abstract to a lot of the readers. If I would say that I found a way to reverse magnetism in a confined space, you wouldn't believe me until you saw what or how I did it. I cannot convince you of the opposite by just saying I did and how great I am and that you just have to believe me because I am the best. Well, I am not the best, and I do share my code (unless forbidden by law). I hope people come up with comments: both positive and negative. I take gratitude in the positive comments and learn from the negative. That is how others do perceive my implementation(s). Maybe I'm right, sometimes I am wrong, but when I am right, I am now forced to find a eloquative answer that will explain why my thought is right. I don't say "you are wrong. period." that doesn't help either of us.

    I'm sure you made something great, otherwise you wouldn't talk about it here that much. But as long as the readers don't have anything to look at, there reactions are expectable.

    Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn

    This reminds me of all those free energy folks.

    Lots of grandiose claims, the "I'm right, the rest of the world is wrong" attitude, little explanation, no evidence, and certainly no looking at the internals is allowed!
