Don't make me cry. I feel sooooo sorry for you. Smile | :)

It's simple. Frameworks last about a week until they change everything in a new version. The fundamentals stay forver, no matter what processors, OS, languages or whatever you use. If you only care about the high level stuff, you are just struggling to keep up with all the sh*t someone else wants to dump on your computer.

His last invention was an evil Lasagna. It didn't kill anyone, and it actually tasted pretty good.
