(This post is from my old, old, super old site. My views have changed over the years, hopefully my writing has improved, and there is now more than a handful of folks reading my site. Enjoy.)

So today I decided I needed more focus on what I was working on so I unsubscribed from a couple of mailing lists that I frequent. The first couple were AppleScript lists- I had joined those because I wrote a REALbasic plugin at one point that compiled and executed scripts at runtime, which seemed like a handy thing to do at one point. I never read the lists anymore, it's just delete-delete-delete, so it seemed like a logical thing to just sign off of it...

The other lists that I got off of were REALbasic lists. I'm not really doing any more more REALbasic programming, and my interest has sort of waned off a bit. After doing Cocoa programming for the past couple of months in my spare time I've realized that I don't really care that much to do any more RB programming... coding in Cocoa is so much more fun. Apps writen in it just seem... better. I can't really put my finger on it, but they just seem more fluid.

Granted, Cocoa has a much steeper learning curve, but as far as I'm concerned it's worth it. <A href=http://www.google.com/search?q=objective-c>Objective-C rules. At some point I'll be as fluid in Cocoa as I am in RB, but that day isn't today.

I don't think it'll be tomorrow either, but maybe by next Wednesday.
