Ten thousand years of Roboshrub.

Fangs for the memories.




In today’s state, Roboshrub Incorporated is an entity entirely devoted
to the execution of what normal people would refer to as “bad ideas.”

It was the creator’s original idea that all concepts, whether
useful or not, contribute to the global subconscious level of progress
for the human race. Therefore, we contend that no idea is an unfit
idea, and vow to act on each and every one of them.

Gallant Previews of Coming Attractions!

Notice how the title ends with an exclamation mark. That was intentional, to convey importance.

Lately, my free time has been spent between two time-consuming activities. The first is hiking along the rail trail which is a hop, skip and jump from my house:
Beautiful!
I probably won’t be doing any more hiking, though. The rail trail has lately become the haunt of bank robbers, people who don’t clean up after their horses, and (once the leaves change color) tourists.

Yeah, I’m totally into fitness now. I just did a push up yesterday.

My other activity is much more taxing, mentally. What I meant is, I’ve got the mental mentality.

Before the new semester started a month ago, I realized that every single course schedule I’ve seen since high school has been illegible and confusing. Therefore, I can only assume that every other person has the same problem. So lo! I am currently assembling what is sure to be the greatest thing I’ve made since January:
ClasScheduler Screenshot
It’s called ClasScheduler (or, rather, it will be once finished) and you can try it here. It’s mostly done.

I wanted to try a few new coding conventions that I’ve learned in the past year; specifically, treating Javascript as a classical language. For the last three years or so, my web apps have been using a continually-evolving string-based filing system. It was becoming hard to understand and maintain between programs, so I rewrote it from scratch.

The new system completely separates content from the script, so I can finally localize my web apps! More than one language is finally possible! That’s really the only thing I’m working on now, adding more languages. And I’m really trying to add Internet Explorer support.

Really.

Also, one final note: after a year of waiting, the Webkit team has caught up to my grand vision and Project Velt now works partially with Webkit nightlies. I should be able to support Safari 4 fully.

I'm not quite sure how a robot hops, skips and jumps but when thinking of the idea I had the overwhelming desire to scream 'maaaarvelous' and put on a pastel sweater.

PS. I've just used your ClasScheduler to not only plan out my semester but several terrorist attacks to boot.

I don't know if you noticed but Gyrobo has a spring instead of legs.

I'm still learning Fortran. I'm preparing for Y3K.

"ClasScheduler" I didn't quite get the concept, I guess. I tried it but nothing happened. Just some gobbly goop. I'm sure it's not your fault.

Your important exclamation marked title brings me no joy!
