Today's weather is a little weird. I woke up this morning and it was chilly with a nice layer of fog hanging in the distance. I was hoping it would stay that way, but I'm sitting here alone in my office listening to the creaking of the building as it strains against some pretty darn strong wind. I've love it if it was cold and windy though... the air being brought in by the wind is very hot and dry *bleh*.
Eclipse (Geek Based)
I tried playing with a new software development IDE (Integrated Development Environment) today. It's supposed to be truely kick ass and has fabulous built-in support for Jakarta-Struts (a web application framework created by Apache that I'm desperately trying to learn). Unfortuately, I think this application was written by highly technical nerds who all know exactly what they mean when they say things... but to me it's just gibberish. *sigh* To me? I'm a geek dammit, I'm even a software geek. A college-educated, real-world accomplished software geek... and I don't understand how to use this thing. I really wish software developers gave more weight to usability. The way to make software understandable and usable is probably the most important thing I've learned from Jenn (in the technical arena). I've still got a lot to learn, but seriously.. it's almost like some people make software with the intention of making it hard to use so that only the "worthy" will be able to use it. So that you can almost wear it as a badge.
"I used Eclipse to develop my last project."
"Ohhh... ahh... wow.. you actually understand that stuff?"
I'm going to give it a few more tries, because I really need something that will help me with developing struts apps, but I'm not going to be standing on any boxes lauding the design of Eclipse.
