Cross-Platform QML

I’ve been thinking a lot about cross-platform QML recently, and I’m about to email the dev list with a suggestion. But the conceptual background essay is here instead of in the mail this time. Hopefully this will help better organize the information – it certainly allowed me to go into much greater depth on the wider issue 🙂 .

A Straw-Woman Argument

I strongly support gender equality, but it bugs me that sometimes modern gender equality is mis-interpreted as pro-woman. Political correctness also bugs me, particularly when people try to rewrite the English language because some words or expressions might be deemed offensive. Leaving aside for a moment that being offended is a state of mind in the reader, a language is not suitably expressive if it cannot provoke an emotional response (including offending people). I thus will try to provoke an emotional response with this short speech, modeled as being by and for some of the people who bug me in a non-insectoid way.

The Corporate Drone

I just went and did a bit of interviewing in the US, the time on plane flights was enough for me to write a short story on the subject. I had been researching the issue for some time as well in preparation, which ended up more useful for humor writing than for actual interviewing. Thus it’s based on the stereotypes, not on my actual experiences (except that the Zerg were on my mind after one particular interview 😉 ).

Disgaea DS Review

The fledgling review section isn’t complete without an example of a positive review. Fortunately a relevant milestone has come up. I recently passed over 256 hours on my primary Disgaea DS save slot. It doesn’t get that far along unless I’m giving it a 🙂 verdict.
