Why blobs are better than newspapers

Blobs are the new news papers.

Why carry around a dead tree when you can carry around a conputer?
I think the future is blobs being written in France and read in Mongoliar by yak herders.

I stayed in a yurt once and it had wireless broad band! The people used it to tell the space satellite to move the cattle and track them. It worked with microwaves like an oven (water molecules bouncing heat into the stratosphere to the space satellite by boiling)

This is why blobs are great. I can sit in my yurt and drink yak milk while writing my blob. Where would I find a dead tree news paper in the Gobi dessert? I rest my cases.

Why Javacs sucks

When I was looking for a job all I got asked was about the Javac platform.

I have heard that this was used on the Enterprise (in the 1960's on the TV)

No wonder it is slow! If it was used by Dr Spok and Loenard Nemoy in the 60s it is very old technology! I am happy to stick with Rails and avoid Enterprise issues!

That is why I think Javacs sucks and REAL hacxkers use Linus.

Notepads on Linus

This was the war that I have read about on Goggle. The people who have a religion of notepads!

There is a notepad on Linux called Vimacs. The front part is a notepad with a menu called Xmac and the back part (for hard use with Konsole for us haxkcers!) is called Vi which means five.

I have tried Vi and the escape key was under my finger too much. The keyboard nearly broke!
I have also tried Xmac and none of the keys works and I kept getting buffers running all over which is a form of hackxering I was learning in C++. but I do not want it in a notepad.

The best form of Vimacs si called Kate and is part of the Unbuntu KDE interfacial desktop. It has both the features of Xmac and Vi but is a better version of Vimacs and thus a better norepad for Linus. This is what I will use for my Rubby work. It makes Rubby come up with nice colors too!

Other people have told me to exclips but I cannot find it in Gogle and anyway - I am a hacxker and I know that exclips is made from the Javacs platform. I will not use any Javacs platform on my conputer, thanks very munch.

Rails on Unbuntu - Mongril or Lightttdp? or Web Rick

I was trying to get Rails working on my Unbuntu computer. After I had read the docs and documentations I saw that my problem was that I was trying to use the Apacher sever which is not the easy one.

I had noticed on the Rubby forums that Mongril is a new severe for making Rails work better and so Lightttdp and Web Rick which is older and is installed automgiaclly by apt-get.

I will be using Web Rick and Lightttdp for my first appslication which is for cooking and recipes.
Lightttdp seems very nice but it is thewrong color for my desktop (fonts are too small ) and the Mongril needs me to use a notepad (like Vimacs) for configging which I am learning myself tonight. So I think I will use Web Rick. !

I will keep you posted!

Rubby Links on the W.W. w.

Here are some links that you can hover to on the W. W.W . to find out more about Rubby and the Rubby on Rails (rOr)


He is a funny man who draws pictures of creatures made of Bacon. His website is hard to undertstand for a new beginner, but if you are a Haxcker like me it makes sense! You must read between and over the lines (and around) for what his meanings are...


This is the main website for Rubby. It has lots of docs and documents. All usefuel for you to learn how to do Blocks and Yields, and an Array.


This is the man who invented Rails. I forget his name, but he uses his initials for his name - DDT. DDT is so clever he is Danish. He invented Rails in a week and then went to live in America with other Rubby programmers. He believes in software Having Opinions which means that Rails knows what it likes and will not work for you if it disagrees with you. I think he is great. He fights with Javac programmers all the time. He always wins though because Javac programmers are Very Slow and he is Agile. Because Rubby was invented by Zen in Japan all Rubby programmers are good at martian arts and can Kick Ass if Javacs show up. I am just learnding how to do this!


These are the Really Important Programmers who make Rails appslications that run the W.W.W. They fight with the Javacs all the time and even though they are basicaly Camp this does not mean they do not kick ass! They have a religion that is called 'Getting Real' that costs 20 dollars and is based on Zen (like Rubby). I am going to buy this religion when I make my money with Rails. DDT lives with them now in one of their houses (they have three houses and move between cities - this is part of the Getting Real religion) Their name is because Aliens left 37 messages (sigils) on the bosses phone one day. He is called Jason Freud and he is not Danish.

(Please note I am not gay even though I like Camp)

New problems with the W.W.w

I figured out that it was the power unit on my conputer causing the sudo passbox. I deleted the /usr and the /bin from Konqeror and re-installed with my new Unbuntu crroms. The sudo is gone now.

I am trying to be a technical coder and use the Konsole for programming Linus but all the commands are hard to remember! I used ls and cd and man today and then tried the automagic apt-get and now I have to use apechctl2 to be starting the W.W.W. Cool or what!

Now I just have to find out where the W.w.W is on my conputer. It says in the docs that Apacher uses the var and the www for the setup. I think they are in Konqeror and that should be easy.

The thing I am looking forward to is programming with Ruby in Vimacs, a notepad on Linus!

Setting up Apacher W.W.W. Sever

I am having small problems with my Unbuntu boxen (as the hacxkors call them!)

I am using the KDE version of Linus which is the interfacial desk of the Unbuntu hard drive. When I chose to start Synaptical it keeps asking me to use the sudo passbox. I am not installed as a sudo and now the conputer will not let me use Synaptical. I read on the W.W.W that you can start a Konsole and type

'apt-get' and then the automagic install runs that installs all the programmes in the hard drive. But now sudo is there and I have to re-install my boxen!

Oh well, back at the drawing boards!

My new blob

I have been meaning to set up a new web blob (that's a diary on the W.W.W. for those of you who do not use a conputer) and here it is! The service that the search generator Goggle makes for me at Blobber is great.

I am at the moment setting up my Unbuntu conputer for Rails - the Rubby language W.W.W. framewok for making W.W.W. sites. Rubby is a great conputer programme language. It has the following sytnax elements:
  • Blocks
  • Frames
  • Swings
  • Arrays
  • Symbols (made with a : ) - that is not a smiley
  • Yields
I am only learning Rubby. It was written by a Zen man in the Japan who learned it while meditating and it Did Not Repeat on him. His name is Matthew and he makes Rubby to be fun for coders like me and you.

I will let you know how I am getting on as soon as my Unbuntu conputer has the W.W.W installed. I just the cdroms today and I will be onstalling them now soon!
