    FT.com :  "web services"   The next big thing 
    
      The idea behind web services is beguilingly simple: use the internet to publish
      and deliver modular software to which any number of users can subscribe. These
      software services may do anything, including currency conversion, credit card
      validation or production scheduling.

    /(/ 1043 / Astoundingly , Friday 020104 , I had another destructive disk
     failure on the Sony R505TE I bought July 24 to replace the Z505SX whose
     disk failed in June . Pulling apart the -SX to get at the ( Toshiba ) disk
     to FedEx it off to Carbondale IL to be retrieved , I broke the clip on the
     connector to the touchpad . This error defeated reassembling it with the
     IBM 20G drive I dropped near $200 to pointlessly get quick .
    
     I am now up on the Z505SX which Raj Chetiar's brother Vishu just
     reassembled and reloaded with Windows 2000 .  Vish had the brilliance
     to simply plug in a mouse to obviate the touchpad problem .
     This is the first time I have ever used a mouse for more than 5 minutes .
     It's an interesting experience , but I continue to prefer the old EMACS
     aesthetic of never having to move my hands from the keyboard .
    
    This time I just lost material since 011211 , and most of that time I was
    accompanying my brother Jack , http://cosy.com/art/jacka/jacka.htm , out
    to our sister Joyce and her girls and parrots and big white dogs and horse
    out in Colorado Springs . In 28 years , the apron of the Front Range has
    has been infected with a continuous rash of human habitation for at least
    the 160 kilometers between CS and Boulder where I visited my high school
    ( http://Culver.org ) adventure bud Gary Neptune
    ( http://NeptuneMountaineering.com ) and his wife Bibi who met each other
    at Everest base camp .
    
    
    Anyway , I've reconstructed a couple of the few words I defined during the
    lost period , and I think they are interesting enough to post .
    In any case , that absolutely backs them up .
    
    Work in K.CoSy follows the hierarchical dictionary ~ directory , structure
    of the K-tree .  For instance ,I have my personal work and accounts in a
    Job dictionary named  `BobA , and work on Raj and my partnership ,
    CoSy_Homes , is in a Job dictionary , `Homes .
    So it's very common to be writing and executing , e.g. :
    
    `show $ `BobA
    
    . It's so common that I keep lists of lines to " `show $ " this or that
    around in the various Jobs I work in . It's so common that I keep lists
    of the most common objects , for instance `.CoSy.BobA.Ref , in which I
    keep all my account numbers and passwords , etc ,  in the  f8 Command
    window , `.Cmds .
    
    But , one of the aspects of  K.CoSy  is keeping logs of daily activity ,
    For instance , here are my notes in  `.CoSy.Boba earlier this morning :
    
    / 0844 / email  / 0936 / Emilio m w Andrea , cb ~ 12 / c> / Raj
    
    .  I wanted to be able to display the job containing all my interactions
    with  Raj  with just a keystroke . And I wanted to be able to do it on
    names appended to earlier work . Therefore , I created the words below ,
    and modified a couple . I've found this mechanism so time saving that
    after downloading my last backup of my working  c:/CoSy.csd  from my
    web host , I reconstructed the vocabulary so I could start  `BobA
    without writing even one redundant  " `show $ "  .
    
    Here is the vocabulary : ( All of this is executed in the Root : .CoSy ) /)/
    
    text..f9..h : " `show $ `\" name after last comment token in current line\" "
    text..f9 : " `show $ . ( .R `lastseg ) _v . _i "
    
    lastseg : { *| tokcut[ C ] C , x }
    lastseg..h : " returns section of string after last comment token "
    
    C : " / "  ;  C..h : " the primary comment symbol "
    
    /  `tokcut  is previously defined
    tokcut..h
    " split string `y at multi char token `x "
    
    / I also needed to regularize my timestamps to be compatible :
    
    hm : { C , ( -4 # "00" , $ *| ts x ) , C }
    hm..h
    "current time . hour & minute"
    
    /(/  That's it .  It reduces showing an object to writing down its name , eg :
    
    `.CoSy.People.Raj
    
    and tapping f9 . ( Incidentally , I tried  f10 , but that seems to be hard
    wired to be an alternative "alt" key . )
    ( Note in the example from my notes above , I have a variable `Raj defined in
    `BobA holding  `.CoSy.People.Raj . )
    
    Here are a couple of other recent miscellaneous new words :
    /)/
    
    KtoM : 1.609344  ;  KtoM..h : " Kilometers % Mile "
    
    matchR : { ( .:' x ) ~' .R x }
    matchR..h :  " do objects in active dictionary match same objects in Root ? "
    
    ( .R `matchR ) `text. `r.    / Its motivating use .
    
    / 1311 /
    
    A final thought :  Sasha Skomorokov pointed out ( in APL ) that
    
    1 ~ { x ~ | x : 10 _vs x } 2002
    
    which was last true in  1991  and will not be true again for  110  years .
    
    may this symmetry presage a peaceful and productive year .

    Much of the hatred engendered toward the USA today stems from the CREATION BY the BUDDING WORLD GOVERNMENT , the UN , encouraged by TRUMAN , in DIRECT VIOLATION of the USA 1ST AMENDMENT PROHIBITION of the ESTABLISHMENT OF RELIGION , of an EXPLICIT THEOCRACY .
    The quickest way to bring peace to the MidEast would be for US to stop all flows of taken ( tax ) money from US to any country which does not live by our own Bill of Rights . / ======================== / fri.may.20020531 / ======================== /

At the end of World War 2 , when the British empire was being spun off , the profound wisdom of very first clause in US Bill of Rights , written 200 years ago by people who knew more directly the horrors of theocracy and religious wars , The Allied United Nations sanctioned the creation of the theocracies of Israel and Pakistan , in particular . This led to immediate slaughters and dispossessions of millions . US taken ( tax ) money to any of these countries does not just violate an abstract notion that " Foreign Aid is Bad " , it violates the word and wisdom " Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion " . What difference does it make if the church is here or overseas ? I continue to predict that balance will only come to Palestine when Israel does something as horrendous and indefensible as what was done to my neighborhood . Only then will the extremists on their side , including Sharon , be straitjacketed .
