I'm raging right now for one specific reason. It's a very simple reason, one that anyone who's ever coded a dynamically resizing DIV object in a webpage or changed a font color on mouse-over should take to heart. What's the reason?
What's wrong with this? Let's put it this way...
Say you want to be an artist. But you can't invest the time and energy into developing your art skills. So someone writes a computer program that basically does the art for you with a few mouse clicks and a setting or two (Photoshop filters, Adobe After Effects, etc.). So five years down the road when you're a 'cool artist' after memorizing a $500 'how to use art software' book from cover to cover the company is liquidated for whatever reason and their software patents go to Sony. Sony packs all their software away and never releases a new version of the software. You're left to cling to the remnants of dying software until it's no longer supported by your current OS. Thus, you no longer have the ability to make art.
They can live in their ignorance, just get off my internet.
Anyway, I'm done. I just needed to complain about it. I shouldn't have to sift through JQuery confused for its core programming language to find the code that makes the JQuery actually work.
And I just know Klorsis is going to troll me all day for this post, but I ain't even mad.
