On Mac, again!

A renewed interest on DevRiot for Eclipse (Mac) has appeared in the last couple of weeks which is great. 

The problem was that the demo link inside the whitepaper was broken. The link has been fixed now. I apologize for the incovenience. Enjoy!

Another Short Update

DevRiot for .Net is coming along well. We have spent extra time ironing out the code that deals with System.Object, interfaces, and abstract types because it is adding more dynamic input to an already dynamic engine. 

Since the user never writes code, tests are generated/executed on the fly, the former types add more complexity to the logic so the ironing of bugs turns more complex too.

Hit a unexpected behavior between the recompiling process of DevRiot and VS debugger. Specially annoying when handling 10,000 tests or more.

Visca aBarça!

It is a tough job to play Barcelona these days. When a team has too many players worried about defending, how come can they think about attacking?

This is why, imho, Ferguson had to waste a player like Rooney defending too much and leaving the brat swinging from left to right unable to deal with the backs. Last night, Puyol was as good as Ronaldo attacking while Ronaldo was not even half the defender.

Our visit to Vancouver is behind us. Beautiful architecture, beautiful outdoors. We didn't make it to the coast. Next trip.

For $2.50 (Canadian) one could ride a bus from downtown to the airport. In a reasonable amount of time (less than 1 hr.) For a 2.1+ million people, it is very good public transit. 

It was hard to see a traffic jam, at least between downtown and the airport.

Wonderful local breweries, parks, and coffee shops. We found a blackberry porter worth a pint or two.

Blues blue...

A long time Barcelona supporter but Chelsea's defensive effort deserved to be in the Champions League final.  Hiddink is an amazing defensive genius...



If anybody feels the need to make a change or needs a sensible idea, I suggest help reduce corruption in developing countries. 

It is hard to ask joe-six pack for help in the next disaster while Wall Street bankers deplete his 401K and corrupt local officials in the next ground zero resell his donations.

Logging off this thread. 


Two-stepping on empty:

American consumers are deleveraging, in other words spending less to reduce their high levels of debt. Their average wage is falling too. 

By most accounts businesses have a lot of excess capacity. Why would they need to invest/spend?

No other country's consumer seems to be ready to step in for american's spending. 

So it is hard to figure out from where the future cash flows for this stock market rally are coming.

On the other end of the spectrum, it is amazing to see how these anti-.... groups are still stuck in 1917. 

One person suggested to me looking at X Movement as a "new way". The first thing one sees in the movement's web-site is a picture of a banner that states: "Abolish Money".

Pol Pot and crew tried this brilliant idea 30-some years ago and starved to death millions of people.

No room for common-sense...or memory.
