absolutely not feeling serious . . .

"I dunno, press the button and find out."




Your Political Profile:

I must admit, for this last one, some of the questions had me a little confused - still figuring out American social security and a few other things....

and what can I say, life has been way too serious lately....

I hate quizzes, but fortunately I already know the answer to some of these questions (...career-wise that is):

"This Java thing will never catch on."

(If you don't get it, I can explain.)

My Political Profile:

Somewhat to the left of Fidel Castro.

I did my political profile thing I was as left and somewhat south of Gandhi...
(on Cafe DA)

Love quizes far too much - gives me more useless misinformation about myself to banter about.

okay - explain the Java thing, my understanding ends at coffee....

Sothis said...

Kvatch is right-the Java thing never will catch on.

Java is an object oriented programming language developed by Sun Microsystems and introduced in 1995--it has been hobbling along ever since. Had lots of press, not many adopters.

I love the quizzes, too. I guess I like nazel gazing too much.

Callooh said...

love naval gazing too - excellent way to spend your time... :-)

still don't understand the java thing - but that's okay, I'd have to have a functioning left brain I think - I only know sometimes I have to "allow" it to get things to work. that's good enough for me.

Kvatch said...

Sothis had it right.

How can I explain...Java is "interpreted". In other words, it requires another piece of software to turn Java instructions into computer instructions when a Java program runs. Most (not all, but most) programming languages before Java were "compiled". In other words, turned into instructions before before you ever attempted to run a program.

For this reason, Java in the early days was expected to be too slow for general use. That has proven not to be the case, but Sothis is still correct, Java has been slow to catch on.

DA said...

way too serious over here too..let's party Ann! ("nice doggy" should be my last words..duh..)

Lance Morrison said...

"Goodbye. I am leaving because I am bored."

Apparently, at 55 I decide to kill myself. Well, that will never do.

I wanna press a button... much more interesting.

Callooh said...

DA - cannot take the seriousness sometimes, must bust out, also with all the excellent bloggers addressing it, feel I'm best suited for comic relief at times like these. my daughter (13y) ended up with nice doggie too, hmmm I COULD write a blog on the six degrees of separation of this world (she also writes about Gandhi and has an Sri Lankian Pen Pal) and is there REALLY such a thing as a coincidence - that would be more my style..... hmmm or perhaps I will just party.

Callooh said...

Kvatch - thank you, I understand, but I do not comprehend - will work on that - maybe ;-)

Sometimes you have to be patient with my non literal mind....

Callooh said...

Lance!
What of our marriage?!
What of my HAIR?!
What of the world?!

You do NOT have my permission to leave. (I'm a leo, I'd take that seriously) If you are bored it is your own fault, and I will pitch a hissy fit to end all hissy fits if you do go.

Read Kvatch's site, DA's, read Withinsight - all linked on my page they will give you good reason NOT to be bored.

I'm dying pressing a button because I plan to live a long time since I have so much to accomplish, but I am left handed and have a greater than average chance of dying in some freak accident then the rest of y'all - plus to call me quirky is kind of an understatement....

Gary said...

Apparently my famous last words will be:
"Nice doggy."

Hmmmm, maybe I'll think a bear is a dog? Or maybe a mutt will be peeing on me while I lie in the gutter. Or maybe I'll be delusional and say these words to some woman.

Gary said...

Hey, I was close to you on the political scale, but you're even more liberal than I am. You really are a Canuck!

Callooh said...

Gary -

Canuck I am, and will always be - and I think surrounded by all the Right Wingers has made me dig in my heels all the more - never did grow out of those teenage years....

nice doggie seems kinda popular.... I think being left handed is gonna have me go in some freak accident, no long lingering tear stained bed side death for me - 90year old surfing death or something... ;-) or being clubbed to death at a peace rally (either way I indend to be well into my 90's and still a hippie)

glenda said...

hey, callooh, been really busy lately, but wanted to come visit...I always get the dork report on these tests...like you will have fun at shopping malls and Sears catalogs or some such trifling activity.

Callooh said...

hi Glenda,
Me TOO! still sleepy (yawn!) and hopelessly unprepared for my upcoming trip - sigh.
better shopping at malls (did I just say that?) than at Walmart... forget the 7 levels of hell just put me in a Walmart or a mall with my mom in law....
working on a new blog - very clever, blah blah blah - but can't manage to get it done. zzzzZZZZZzzzzz
