it's not ok !!!

One day I am just going to stop saying it's OK !!!!

emerson on friendship

" If I was sure of thee, sure of thy capacity, sure to match my mood with thine, I should never think again of trifles, in relation to thy comings and goings. I am not very wise; my moods are quite attainable; and I respect thy genius; it is to me as yet unfathomed; yet dare I not presume in thee a perfect intelligence of me, and so thou art to me a delicious torment. Thine ever, or never. " -- Ralph Waldo Emerson

less and less and less, what happens when there is nothing left ....

Random Thoughts #5 : A relationship gone south

It feels like I am letting someone else control the fate of a relationship. How awkward and uncomfortable. I do not know what to do. Should I push harder or back off. I am taking my queue from this person. My person. I'm convinced that this is the week when I will decide to move on or stay put. The question is whether I can muster the emotional fortitude to do either.

Prose #3 : Truth in Anger

" ... I have accepted your apology but I don't believe I have forgiven you yet. You had all the intention to hurt. There is truth in anger. It reflects how much your opinion of me has diminished over time ... "

Music #1 : Literally No Words : Yiruma's River Flows in You

I close my eyes and imagine a downpour .... the water flowing into me forming a river ....


Random Thoughts #4 : Letting Go

Logic escapes me. Why is it so hard to let go of someone? It seems the longer they have been with you the harder it is to release them from your consciousness. The constant urge to know what's happening in their lives. This obsession with their Facebook posts and Tweets. Perhaps it is similar to the process of getting to know them, but in reverse. Instead of taking mental notes about them, you discard the memories one by one until what remains is YOU; alone again. Logic has nothing to do with this.

Prose #2 : a snake born in the year of fire

" ... The fortune teller was old. She smelled funny but her words were all but. They were deliberate with a tinge of foreboding. Her telling began with the phrase 'you are a snake born in the year of fire' ... "

Prose #1 : gods

 " ... the people call me god. In this one year, I do not ask for assistance. I am asking you to be a god with me. Let everything we touch come to life with a force whose flow finds no ebb. Together we shall be legends both admired and despised ... "

Random Thoughts #3 : Loneliness

No one should ever have to feel alone in this existence. The reality is that we choose to be alone. We are the cause of our loneliness. Yet, it maybe a defence mechanism against hurt or pain. In the end, like many things, it is a balance. Not a skill I have mastered yet.

Random Thoughts #2 : Respect

Even among the closest of friends there is respect. The trouble with the way we communicate now in the digital age is the difficulty in discerning the meaning of the text. It may have been spur of the moment, a joke, unintentional but depending on each other's state of mind it could be offensive and annoying.

Random Thoughts #1 : Kindness

It seems I have forgotten how to be kind. Perhaps it comes with getting older. I grow more impatient as the years move on. I feel the slowness and the difficulty of coping with the everyday so I inflict the frustration on others.

Mac "Pron"

Surely, only geeks, hardware enthusiasts and apple fan boys get aroused when they see a Mac stripped bare like so ...

Ext JS 3.2 beta released to the public

ExtJS 3.2 beta is out. In addition to over 180 bug fixes, this new release includes

1) Multi sorting and filtering on Data Stores

Multiple filtering has been possible for quite some time thanks to the GridFilter Plugin but multiple sorting is new. The demo shows the use of a Toolbar Droppable plugin too. Nice !

2) Animated DataView transitions

Think better looking product catalogs ;-)

3) Composite Fields

I've always wondered how to get the datefield and the timefield components in one line.

4) Slider and Slider Field

Multiple handles in one slide bar and the ability to use it as an alternative input field to say a numberfield.

5) Toolbar plugins

We saw the droppable toolbar plugin in the sorting demo. Seems you can reorder toolbar items now as well.

6) New Theme

A new theme has been created that makes your app compliant with the Section 508 of the Disabilities Act.

7) Unit Tests and lots of it.

Almost 300 test cases. Wow !
