They've treated me very well over the years project after project but I'm starting to get to a point where programming in these languages, and in particular the frameworks, feels more and more like writing and editing config files as opposed to programming interesting projects. Which is great for getting projects live fast but after awhile the repetition grows on me (it's similar to grinding out RPGs).
So, my next project will be something more brain rocking and hopefully wake me out of this repetitive cycle. Currently I've been reading Functional Programming in Scala as a start and I really enjoy the functional aspect although much of the examples look more like algebra than code I'm used to and it's really breaking my understanding of everything. Besides that, might try playing with Objective-C again as there is an iPhone game that was started and my grasp of the language is slightly better now than it was a year ago. Who knows, just bored with creating generic websites now that this site along with Boycott Paper are live and I can get content onto the net.
Oh, happy holidays, it's time for some Chinese food.
 Those sites were usually very basic, you put a banner ad on your site, "Click here to vote for me", type of deal and then anyone that clicked on that link incremented a person's vote. End of the day all votes were reset and with my version the banner/button shown on a page did show their current rank. Oh, flat files were the storage engine back in those days and best viewed in MSIE4!
