TrilTril is David E. Manifold's alias
I prefer to go by Tril online... it is short for Tril 0. Byte and it doesn't mean anything in particular. It was my BBS name back in the day.
I do not approve of the TUNES project planning to reserve the right to offer non-free support. (http://tunes.org/tunes.html, just over half-way down the page, under "old blurb")
I completely agree with the Principles (formerly Requirements), but am not so sure if I support the HLL Definition and Architecture. I have a different system in mind, which I am implementing (with the help of HenZo) in Max. All my code will be released to the Public Domain, thus it could be used in anyone else's project if they want, but I do not care if anyone else likes my project and I will continue working on it whether it gets supported by the TUNES project or not.
Less talk, more code
I have come to believe that writing about TUNES is just spinning thin air. I prefer not to say anything any more until there is working code. This is why I am not active in the specifications discussion or other discussion threads on TUNES. I believe this is also why none of my writings ever became more complete: Because there is no practical code, or experience with code, to make the writing have any substance, I always simply trailed off without any clue of how my ideas went together.
So, anyone can post my old writings to CLiki if they want, but keep in mind that the words have no substance and that I don't intend to edit them until there's code.
What I'm up to
- nas.com - I work part time for this Internet Service Provider doing unix administration and miscellaneous work needing done. I'm currently working on Zope stuff. I recently helped launch the new nas.com home page, running Zope.
- intuitive-access.com - I created this company as a vehicle for some programming ideas which are not directly TUNES-related. nas.com only hired me part-time, and I needed another job but wanted to employ myself.
- Unnamed project - I'm working on a business plan for another business that some friends and I are interested in starting, if feasible.
- More projects - I'm always thinking of new projects, which motivate me to work hard on the current ones so that I can get to the new ones.
