No insults there. If you really want some insults, I'm sure I could cook some up for you.

I can look at a thread title, and if it reads "Possible bridges between OO programming proponents and relational model" then I'll pass. If any nuggets of worthwhile insight or value pop up, and I disregard them in a future post, I expect I will be pointed in the appropriate direction. Trawling 146 posts (current total on Google) doesn't seem to be a valuable use of time. (And before you ask, I can answer these posts in between doing other, more useful things. Reading a thread from top to bottom, starting off from a premise ("bridges between OO programming proponents and RM") that holds no great interest for me, would represent a far greater investment in time and concentration than I'm willing to devote to it just now.)

It depends on the technical and theoretical exchange. I would have liked to have had more time available to answer Pickie's questions and concerns in the thread on Operationalizing Orthogonality, for example, as I'm certain they could have been allayed. Another time, perhaps. And as for the physical level, I'm so disinterested in that now that it surprises me. The most interesting things in computing science can probably be done with a sheet of paper and a pen, with a computer used only to verify the results. Received on Sat Jun 17 2006 - 09:13:05 CDT
