Introduction

Posted 06 May 2004 - 09:36 AM

Hi All,

My name is Mark Washburn. I met a fellow tech yesterday, Markus, who told me about your website. Thought I would drop by and say hello.

I am a software engineer and specialist with office automation and information/document workflow. My current development skills are with Java and XML. 'The Path'. I am both a Java advocate and critic, you may find me to very knowledgeable about the subject of Java.

I am the author of myForth, an emulator and mini-Forth development Applet. Although simulating a MISC architecture in Java is about hundred to thousand times slower than the real thing, myForth is a good study in both Java and Forth, for those who may be interested. ( Source code is available for non-commercial use, http://mywebpage.net...oy/myforth.html )

I also have spent years with research and design of SMP MPP FORTH, a high efficiency super-scalable microprocessor. If you've seen some of the internals of the lastest Intel chips, you can see some ( a little bit) of the benefit of SMP MPP MISC architecture.

You can find me most often on usenet comp.lang.java.*, simply use google to search for mawcowboy or Reply7471859353.

Best Wishes,

Mark A. Washburn

Yay! A Java guru. We haven't seen one of those in years.

I did my, "data structures and advanced programming" work at Berkeley in Java 1.1. Then I switched to the English major. I still use my Java skills to teach PHP programmers to use OOP. In fact, my forthcoming article from zend.com is all about OOP v.s. procedural in PHP (a language where you actually have a choice).

We get Java questions every once in awhile (I remember helping Slothie with an assignment awhile back), but a lot of folks here favor PHP for web development. With the upcoming release of PHP5 (which I like to refer to as the "Java 2" release of PHP) the object model, try-catch statements, public/private/protected, interfaces, and everything else good about Java is getting ported in to this cute little runtime interpreted language.

Welcome aboard. Stick around. This place gets mighty wacky.

Greetings I'm Mork!

I think that is the second time I've said that, so one more time and it will be true
