We put the matic in Ninzomatic

I've created a program to make short work of those pesky Bearcodes.
And now I'm building an open source software product to teach myself
the ins and outs of the mysterious and wonderful world of
linux open source software development.
Bears will be bears! But how to tell them apart?
I programmed my web site to translate all those
Bearcodes I find in the personal ads.
Not as good as a Bearcode Decoder Ring,
but it'll do in a pinch. Now you can use it too!
zuble is an open source software project to build an application
v8 engine, the same code that powers the Chrome browser.
The project is in it's infancy. Currently it consists of me
(Bob Dinitto, your humble webmaster)
and a working prototype I'm developing
as a proof of concept and to serve as the basis for a production
level version of zuble if that effort should materialize.
I intend to release the code under the MIT open source software license.
It is as yet unreleased because it doesn't support a
sufficient level of functionality to build a viable application.
And what good is an application framework that can't build
The big missing pieces are
in the same process space - almost done!),
GNOME UI - works a little bit..),
module loading (for extensibility - not started)
and IPC support
(for spawning and controlling slave processes - not started).
But I'm working diligently and I hope that by spring 2012
I'll be able to publish the code for a working prototype of
the base system. From the list above you see that I shall
have to work hard because this isn't my day job.
I'll also be building a web page for
zuble in the near future where I'll begin documenting the
system and giving status reports.
In preparation I have just purchased the Internet domain name
zuble.org, temporarily parked here at ninzo.com, to serve
as a future nexus for the project participants.
So wish me luck and stay tuned for further developments.
