Loving Spirit. Happy Festives.

“I stopped believing in Santa Claus when I was six.
Mother took me to see him in a department store and he asked for my autograph.”

Or how to take care of your project, why to analyse and to prevent the facts because of minding your ideas is important ; especially if a lovely child can ruin your brand.

The many faces of loving spirits and its inaccuracies. Think 'bout this,  if you belong to the world of the analysis of risks. Or the world of digital innovation. Or whatever.

Happy Festives, dearest reader.

Sass Is More

Now we have Sass-lang and LessJS.

Both languages to programme and build for the web, in a functional mode, a declarative language like CSS we know it is.

After those years of  having pre-processors;  after hundreds of posts pleading about the necessity and usefulness of these task-oriented languages, after deepening into the knowledge of these pair as tools and, of course, appreciating and taking in into consideration the enormous value pre-processors have brought into the arena of the web development.

That after all said, let me guess: I still do not conceive the need and the obligation for a human to download nearly 10.6MB (!!) of information and libraries into  my  her/his personal computer.

This is, to install Ruby first if you want to play safe with Sass. when there is no real need to and it will not be the use of  for this language in your step of development.

The process to be able to build some useful stuff  using a pre-processor like Sass-lang for the needs of CSS deployment, looks like but does not seems rational.

 If, in the process of web development we do ever have to make space for a language and its correspondent libraries, which will have no use if, for example, in spite of the fact that you have to deploy or code your project in some other language; if this pre-processor just give you the sense of perfection, then, in my humble opinion, we are complicating things.

Ten megabytes to compile a pre-processor to compile to.

I do not mind of a single click, really. But I do not buy a thing for its simplicity. In business, we all know time is a resource that can be or well spent or bad spent. And saving time is not always the best way to build a project.  Rome was not built in one day.

If these things and minds are happening, is because m

I Like Cats Better, too.

Veronica-2's internals have been substantially rewritten (again). Currently, as the database now carries close to 4 million selectors

There are other protocols in the net suite, one of them is strongly oriented towards a menu-document design and presented as an alternative to the World Wide Web.

Cameron has done an excellent work, noticed to us by email, my applause on the re-vamp with more predictive logic and even more aggressive results-stage caching  of the Gopher search engine widely known as Veronica-2.


It's time to have a taste.
