OPEN LETTER TO GEEKS

08 Apr

I well remember the first time my Dad brought home the literature needed for him to learn how to program the new  64K computer at the EO Site.  And we are talking way back, to around 1963.  Yep, there were computers around that early.. Come on guys what controls for the guidance system did you think they used to send a man to the moon?

So, learning code and writing code is older than many of the crazy’s out there..  Now, online we deal with Anon, and it appears many of anon are either code writers, or code readers, and have the ability to enter your website and do a little search or plant more code..  Or they have learned how to write a little monster to eliminate your sites..

Now, most people set down at their computer and the pretty little images come on the screen as they began to have their little day on the computer.. They have no idea, that everything they see, type, download is in code.. There are many code languages, but primarily for the internet you are seeing html, java script.. your programs are ran in Perl, css and many more.  Colleges across the nation are turning out little programmers every year, some to be web builders, some to run  web companies, some to build sites like Facebook or twitter or even MySpace if you remember MySpace..  All of these owners of the last mentioned sites were all kids when they started.. I really mean kids.  Next you find that many of the thousands and thousands of games were created by kids.. So, what I’m trying to point out,  This new generation we are now watching take over the country,  are basically Geeks..  And I’m not using that in a derogatory form, I’m trying to point out to people that the new generation for the most part are computers themselves.

Now, what provoked this open letter this morning..  I’ve raised my siblings, my own children, helped raise my grandchildren, nieces and nephews.. I’ve listened to children fuss and complain my entire life.. And one of the biggest issues,  they just can’t get along, and its always the other child’s fault.  Not one of them ever stood up and made the claim.  Yes, I’m wrong and I know it and I don’t want to get along with the other kids.  It’s the taking responsibility for one’s own actions.. Its not done.. well, hell these grownups online don’t do that either.  So, we expect kids to be better people than the adults?

This morning the Geek versus software issues came blasting in.   You know for sometime using Foxfire, I’ve seen these little error reports flash up,  first foxfire didn’t like my spybot, and it would shut it off and complain about it in the computer period.  Next, it started on the Java and Java Script in the computer, oh it just couldn’t run with those two and it complained it would be unstable and critical blah blah blah,  what it doesn’t tell you, without the Java Script your not going to watch videos and most of your websites are going to work.. Java Script is the cute little piece of software that makes those things happen..  Needless to say, foxfire would shut them down and block them.. without permission I might add.   My comment back to foxfire.. you fix your own problem and leave the rest of the kids alone..

Well, I can hear it now people are saying that woman is complaining and talking about programs and telling programs to fix themselves.. NO.. I’m talking to the actual people who are writing these programs who are in conflict apparently with other actual people who are programmers.  You guys need to get  together on what and why there are conflicts and fix them so those programs can get along.  See, its people not getting along that causes the programs not to get along.

This morning took the cake, and open letters are going on to different companies..  My firewall that also has anti-virus controls announced this morning it can’t work side by side with another anti –virus program on the computer.. Yes, I keep my computer tied down.. Why, well look at what I’ve been dealing with for what 4 years.. and now they attached themselves to young people who are writing code and entering into computers to dox people, and encouraging them to do so..  Hello, if the rest of you haven’t tied down your computers, you better figure out why and what to use to fix it..

Anyway, this firewall is telling me to delete the other anti-virus and even offers to do it for me.. I think not!!

My Conclusion, for those who are the great and powerful programmers,  figure out what causes the conflict in your programming scripts versus other programming scripts and fix it.. Stop allowing conflicts with other programming scripts to reach the public..  Why is this so very important, because people pay a great deal of money yearly to put programs such as these in their computers.. If their going to be a problem.. then people need to stop buying, which means those little programmers will eventually be out of a job..

As an example:  Here’s a free Java Script for an Clock..

<script>

/*Current date script credit:

*/

var mydate=new Date()
var year=mydate.getYear()
if (year < 1000)
year+=1900
var day=mydate.getDay()
var month=mydate.getMonth()+1
if (month<10)
month=”0″+month
var daym=mydate.getDate()
if (daym<10)
daym=”0″+daym
document.write(“<small><font color=’000000′ face=’Arial’><b>”+year+”/”+month+”/”+daym+”</b></font></small>”)

</script>

<p align=”center”><font face=”arial” size=”-2″>This free script provided by</font><br>
<font face=”arial, helvetica” size=”-2″><a href=”http://javascriptkit.com”>JavaScript
Kit</a></font></p>

————————– Where do you put it?  in the body of the HTML Script your webpage is written in..  example:   HTML basic Script.

<html>
<head>
<title>. . .</title>
</head>
<body>

</body>
</html>

And used together, both types of scripts compile my blog…
