internauti in romania

Nu este nici un secret pentru nimeni ca romanilor le place internetul si ca in ceea ce priveste IT nu stam deloc rau.Avem multi oameni talentati si in general exista un numar mare de oameni care sunt pasionati de acest domeniu.
Ceea ce nu inteleg eu este cum se face ca nu exista portaluri /site-uri destinate comunitatii IT.
Si nu ma refer aici la site-uri ca vand componente de calculatoare ,ca de astea avem destule.
Ma refer la site-uri care au ca scop crearea unei comunitati in care membrii sa poata sa participe la discutii, sa publice articole, sa schimbe pareri , bucati de cod, tutoriale e.t.c in genul sau altora asemenea lui.

Am stat mult si m-am gandit de ce naiba scriu eu pe blogul asta in engleza?
Nu am avut niciodata intentia de a face din acest blog unul popular, mai ales la nivel international,ca urmare nu are nici un sens sa scriu in engleza.
In plus am sa scot de pe pagina google ads pentru ca oricum nu da nimeni click pe ele, si nu prea vad ce sens are sa fac reclama la google degeaba.

future plans

I plan to revise my online presence so I’m glad to announce that I’ll update more frequently this blog ,also the post will be more personal and less technical , because I’ll put the technical stuff on the brand new website I’m going to launch.

St. Justin

Born: c.100
Died: 165
Feast Day: June 1
Patron Saint of: apologists, lecturers, philosophers
Justin is given credit to be the very first Christian philosopher. He was born into a pagan Greek family in Palestine and studied the great philosophers. Upon learning of and accepting as his own the Christian faith, he turned his skills and energies toward the philosophy of Christianity, debating that faith was compatible with rational thought. Justin never shied away from a public debate, despite the fact that Christians were being actively pursues and persecuted. His first public debate was before the Emperor Antoninus Pius, the second was addressed to the Roman Senate. In AD 165, he was arrested and martyred by beheading along with six other Christians who refused to make sacrifice to idols. Two of his extant works are still used today: Dialogue with the Jew Typho and Apologies for the Christian Religion."

This week in developer news | CNET

This week in developer news | CNET "More than 100 influential developers using Microsoft products signed a petition demanding the software company to reconsider plans to end support for Visual Basic in its 'classic' form.

The developers, members of Microsoft's Most Valuable Professional program, claim that the move could kill development on millions of Visual Basic 6 (VB6) applications and 'strand' programmers who have not been trained in newer languages.

The problem, they say, is that when Microsoft made Visual Basic .Net (or Visual Basic 7), the successor to VB6, it actually killed one language and replaced it with a fundamentally different one. It is effectively impossible to migrate VB6 applications to Visual Basic .Net, they say. And for VB6 developers, they add, learning Visual Basic .Net is as complex as learning a completely new programming language.

'The .Net version of Visual Basic is Visual Basic in name only,' wrote developer and author Rich Levin in a recent blog. 'Any organization with an investment in Visual Basic code--consultants, ISVs, IT departments, businesses, schools, governments--are forced to freeze development of their existing VB code base or reinvest virtually all the time, effort, intellectual property and expense to rewrite their applications from scratch.'

Despite the outcry, Microsoft remains 'firm' in its plans to end free support for Visual Basic 6 at the end of the month, S. 'Soma' Somasegar, corporate vice president of Microsoft's tools division, told CNET"
